I'm sort of the mind GRRM will now wait until the show is over to publish the book. From a marketing standpoint, there's probably more value in sustaining the brand beyond the show with the promise of further books (Look! See how it's different). That's a pure guess, and I do think he is just very, very slow at writing.

I think that the publisher would want to release the book when interest from the show is high.  And what could be better than going from the season 7 finale of the HBO series into the release of the next book?

I would think so, too and I'm sure they've thought several times in the last several years it'd be nice to have a book out.  :)

Time to dust this off and report that don't expect "WoW" this year.

Maybe next year.

Bummer on that, but I probably will pick up the Targaryen Fire and Blood book when it comes out later this year.

So now he's writing extra books in his downtime instead of finishing the actual original series?

Yeah, that would frustrate me as a fan I think.

Even Tolkien didn't jerk with his audience that much.
