Signing, Signing, Signing

I spent a goodly chunk of yesterday afternoon at the Jean Cocteau with pen in hand, signing books.

We'd sold out of our original stock of A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS, so we got a hundred more. I scrawled illegibly in all of them. I also signed copies of A GAME OF THRONES, A CLASH OF KINGS, A STORM OF SWORDS, A FEAST FOR CROWS, and A DANCE WITH DRAGONS, all of which are now available from the JCC in hardcover, trade paperback, and mass market. We were down to about three copies of the adult coloring book, so we got more of that one too, and a big stack of FEAST OF ICE AND FIRE, the official Westerosi cookbook. All of these can be found on the Signed Books page of the JCC website.

Of course, we also have a lot of great books in stock by the other writers who have visited us. Here are a few of those:



All these, and many many more titles, can be found at http://www.jeancocteaubooks.com/

Autographed books make great Christmas presents... but to be sure of getting your books by Christmas, it would be wise to order now.

Re: OTHER WORKS
Essos is considerably further south. See the map book.

RE: Re: OTHER WORKS
I have the map book, The lands of Ice and Fire... But no where does it explain exact climate. So I am just double checking in Essos winter is less harsh, and do their winters last the same amount of time?

Re: OTHER WORKS
speaking of seasons there is one thing that´s been bugging me since I first read your series. how did people in your world come up with the concept of a "year", when there are no seasons?
The annual change of seasons was the basic idea for what we call now a year.(in German a season is even called "Jahreszeit", meaning time in/of a year). I do know that there are sophisticated ways of calculating the time via watching star/sun/moon movements, but those first require a basic idea of what a year is.
I hope I could explain my "problem" with your world (English is not my mother tongue) and I hope you can help me!

Re: OTHER WORKS
Sorry, but this is off topic.

Also, I have explained this about a hundred times before.

Re: OTHER WORKS
We hope so, but we still have not figured out a way that is not both prohibitively time-consuming and way to expensive.

Re: OTHER WORKS
The length of a year is not at all based on seasons, not in Westeros and not in real medieval history either. It's determined by solar cycle, and it can be measured by lunar cycles (thus in Westeros they always refer to turns of the moon).
