It might still be a long wait for "The Winds of Winter". George R.R. Martin could still be hard at work on the sixth "A Song of Ice and Fire" novel and the author's schedule could get more hectic. After all, it has recently been confirmed that there will be several "Game of Thrones" spin-off shows as well as an upcoming adaptation of "Nightflyers", all of which are based on the writer's works. Will Martin find time to finish "TWOW" before the end of the year?

"Game of Thrones" fans recently got excited over the news that HBO is already planning multiple spin-off shows based on the works of George R.R. Martin. There are speculations that the "Dunk and Egg" stories will be the inspiration behind one of the series while people are hoping to see a "GoT" prequel that will follow the story surrounding Robert Baratheon's rebellion. Unfortunately, Martin's involvement in the new shows could also mean that the author will once again get distracted from working on "The Winds of Winter". Could this mean that the sixth "ASOIAF" book will be delayed even further?

Fans believe that "The Winds of Winter" will be published before the end of the year. After all, George R.R. Martin has reportedly been writing non-stop all month to make sure the book is completed. However, the author has also been hounded by whispers that he is way too busy to continue work on the sixth "A Song of Ice and Fire" novel. Fans believe that the man who created "Game of Thrones" would be involved in the several different projects based on his books and stories. Luckily, it looks like Martin will not be connected to the planned "Nightflyers" TV series, as per ScreenRant.

George R.R. Martin is currently back in New Mexico after being out for several gigs in California, as confirmed on his LiveJournal. The author of "The Winds of Winter" expressed happiness about being home, where he can hopefully go back to writing more pages for the sixth "A Song of Ice and Fire" novel.
