George R.R. Martin's "The Winds of Winter" is one of the highly-anticipated novels and fans are hoping to get their hands on it this year. It is the sixth novel in the fantasy series "A Song of Ice and Fire" and HBO has previously hinted that it's one of the priorities as a wild card. Recent reports say that the author has been busy finishing a charity work as well as a film studio in Santa Fe, Mexico. However, a new report is claiming that "American Gods" author, Neil Gaiman is now the one writing the novel on Martin's behalf.

Earlier reports from Celebeat suggest that "The Winds of Winter" might be out in June, which is at least a month before "Game of Thrones" season 7 premieres on July 16. It is said that Martin is just finishing a charity work and then he will focus on writing the novel. Now, it is said that Gaiman has been spotted at Martin's hometown many times, leading fans to believe that he has been writing the novel.

There are also reports suggesting that Gaiman might be Martin's editor for "The Winds of Winter" and this could be the reason of his visits at Martin's hometown. However, these claims are yet to be confirmed and the fans should content themselves for now that the novel should be out within this year. Apparently, Martin is busy at the moment with his film studio in Mexico, which will be available to Hollywood production as well as film entrepreneurs.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that "The Winds of Winter" author's film studio is housed in a 30,000 square-foot non-profit building in Santa Fe, Mexico. Martin has previously indicated in his blog that he is still focused on a different project, but has made progress in the novel. He also said that he will announce the completion and delivery of the novel.

Nonetheless, Martin's indications on the timeline of "The Winds of Winter" give fans a bit of hope. If reports claiming that it should be out in June, Martin is expected to officially announce it by next month. However, all fans could do is to patiently wait.
