George R.R Martin gave an update on the progress of Winds of Winter at the premier of Game of Thrones Season Three last week. Busy writing the script for Game of Thrones Season 4, George stated he was “about a quarter of the way through” the sixth installment of A Song of Ice and Fire.

George also discussed gaining a new audience and the differences between his television audience and his book series fans. He also kept a marvellously straight face when asked for “spoilers” for TV fans
