Coming to Spain (Still More)

Here are the details on my signing in Granada on July 25:

Librería Nostromo
C/ Buensuceso, 1 - Granada
Tlf: 958 523 818

from 18.00h to 21.00h

I also have the specifics for my appearances in Gijon at Semana Negra.

Saturday, July 12
6:00 pm -- introduction of Corominas' art book of A SONG OF ICE & FIRE

Sunday July 13
7:00 pm -- panel w/ Scott Bakker and Paco Ignacio Taibo II
9:00 pm -- Q&A chat with my translator, Cristina Macia

Those are my only official events at Semana Negra, but I will be arriving on July 11 on the Black Train, and leaving on July 15. In between, you'll often find me at the festival, signing at the Gigamesh booth, listening to the other panels, riding the rides, drinking sangria on the fairway (will the chicken be back, I wonder?), and eating midnight dinners like the Spanish seem to do. Parris and I love to meet my readers, so if you're there in Gijon, don't be shy about coming up and saying hi.

That's in July, though. Right now it's still June and I have one day left before I leave, so I had better cut this short. Things are getting frantic, as they always do before a trip.

ADwD Question
Considering your scheduled appearances for the rest of the year, including your absence over the next few months, when do you expect to complete ADwD?

ASoIaF appears to have slipped in your list of priorities given your numerous other projects and travels and as such the multiple year gaps between books appear to have become the rule. Are the subsequent volumes well enough conceptualized so as to provide a more timely release schedule or do you envision similar gaps?

Thank you. Enjoy your vacation.

Re: ADwD Question
I ain't GRRM, but I've seen him answer this question enough times to know that his answer would probably be along the lines of, "It's impossible to tell." Remember that A Sword of Storms, the longest book in the series, took the shortest amount of time to write, which seems counterinstinctive, but it's just how it turned out.

As a fan and based on prior experience, I'd say that it could be 3-4 years apiece for each one, and if it's less than that, than that's a bonus. If it's more, so be it. Plenty of other authors to read in the meantime.

Re: ADwD Question
see my comment to latriplette... it applies to you too! Such pettiness hidden in your words. Some writers have had as many as 15 years or more between one novel and another. Sheesh!
