Website Revamp

By popular request... a complete redesign and revamp of my website debuted today.

Same content. New look. More bells, more whistles, more functionality (we hope).

There will be a few bumps as we ease through the transition, but we should have everything smoothed out and running well before too long.

Let us know your thoughts.

Great
Looks really nice. My only question - are the sample chapter(s) from Winds of Winter still located therein, like the old site?

Hmmm, I'm not sure about the new look, Sir Martin, it's a bit too (not-A)GoT-centric for me, as a person who has been reading (and loving) your stories since around 1976 or so. Good for marketing purposes related to GoT of course, but even though that's rightly been your main focus for umpty years now (books and show), I miss the sense of your whole body of work that I felt with the earlier design. I always hope that fans of GoT (show or books) will be interested in searching out your other work, and I'm not sure this design will do much for that in the future....

Then again, it looks lovely, for sure....

Excellent revamp of your site! Better as a branding of your name overall - truly was needed.

I couldn't find the link to the sample chapter of tWoW, except in the book news section that has the Theon chapter from last year. Wasn't it the Arianne chapter that was up before?

The new site looks great! I must say that I will miss the old one in a way, though... I've been visiting it for about half my life!

Nice!
Looks great! However, I'm so used to you're old site that this will take some getting used to. :)

So hell finally froze over, eh?
Love the new look and feel. Very slick! My only question is: what happened to the A Song of Ice and Fire sample page? Are you not going to post samples anymore?

First time to your site, I Love it....
I've only just discovered your site while I was looking for information about the possibility of a Book 6 in A Song of Ice and Fire.

I don't know what the old site looked like but I find this site lovely to look at and easy to get around in.

Your site has finally made it out of the 90s! ;)

Seriously, though, it looks fantastic. :)

I don't know... I loved all that violet!!! I must confess that I miss the counter and all the houses' arms all around (them most of all). But then I've been roaming the old one for so many years that I admit this change is "difficult" for me, even though I see there's nothing missing as far as the contents go, maybe there is even something new - I really like the idea of introducing "featured artists"!!! Every time you got a new one for calendars or cover art I was always running through the net to search info and now it comes real handy! and that's fine and good!!!
If possible I would only add a "little something" to let the page stand out in a way or another (I know it's different, but it reminds me badly of Joe Abercrombie's site). I know it stands out only because it's YOUR page. But the previous one screamed "I'm George RR Martin's" from every byte!!!
Maybe I only need getting used to it ;)

Where is samples section?
I don't know if this is the place to ask but where is the Arianne chapter that used to be in the samples section?

Re: Where is samples section?
go to the news section, click on "book news", scroll down til you find Theon's chapter... I was only able to find that one ;)

It looks very slick professional. But I am going to miss those rotating shields ... isn't there a way to keep a few of them, just as a little nod to the old fans from way before the show, for old time's sake ...?

Go and check it out one shield lives on ;) with a quick link to Arianna's Chapter all updated and back to normal :)
