Many fans are now thrilled about the up and coming release of The Winds of Winter novel. George R.R. Martin first announced the imminent book seven years ago. However, up until now, avid followers of the A Song of Ice and Fire series are still clueless as to what they should expect in the TWOW novel.

In July 2017, George R.R. Martin teased the possible official release date of The Winds of Winter. The 69-year-old author revealed through his "The Swords Are Drawn" blog post that the sixth installment of the A Song of Ice and Fire series is likely to come out in late 2018 or early 2019. Korea Portal previously reported the brain behind the Game of Thrones series even stated that TWOW could possibly arrive with the first Fire and Blood book.

Recently, the A Song of Ice and Fire author revealed that he is not sharing spoilers for the upcoming new novel anymore. Most fans can recall that George R.R. Martin has been so generous in giving free details about The Winds of Winter following its countless delays. However, through his LiveJournal blog, GRRM told an avid fan that he is not releasing excerpts anymore.

In the comment section of a blog post dedicated to the Fire and Blood series, George R.R. Martin stated that he already released enough spoilers for The Winds of Winter. He even claimed that, all in all, those details could possibly be "more than a hundred pages" if put together. GRRM even said he chose not to share details because it will only trigger his critics to say bad things about him and his writings.

"In the minds of some, what should have been a brand new reading experience became old and familiar," George R.R. Martin stated. "It's not worth it putting up sample chapters and giving readings if it means it will come back and bite me in the ass when the book is finally published," the A Game of Thrones writer added. Aside from the spoilers, GRRM has not yet confirmed the official release date of The Winds of Winter.

Meanwhile, Elite Daily shared about the possibility of The Winds of Winter being released in two volumes. The blog cited a previous statement of George R.R. Martin where he revealed that his editors suggested him to split the imminent new A Song of Ice and Fire book in two. "Some of my publishers have suggested breaking up WINDS as we did with FEAST and DANCE. I am resisting that notion," GRRM stated.

Up until now, it remains to be seen if this notion is likely to push through. However, from the looks of it, it seems like fans could only expect one new installment of the A Song of Ice and Fire series soon. Stay tuned for the latest spoilers, news and updates about The Winds of Winter!
