All eyes are on writer George R.R. Martin as he updates fans, hinting that the long wait could be over soon and the elusive book is headed to the bookshelves this year. Readers of the book series "The Song of Ice and Fire" have been patiently waiting for the sixth installment for quite some time now. Although the hit saga has been brought to life in HBO's blockbuster series, "Game of Thrones," fans have been dying to know when "The Winds of Winter" will arrive.

Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series' latest release, "A Dance With Dragons," was made accessible to the readers in July 2011. It has been almost six years and fans are frustrated for the reason that there seem to be no real updates with regards to the release of the "The Winds of Winter."

Unfortunately, according to Entertainment Weekly, the best-selling author has only released updates about what is going to happen in the next book and the final book of the series but not on "when" it will be released. In addition to the information regarding the release date of "The Winds of Winter," reports have it that Martin was too preoccupied in 2016 with all the travels and appearances on different meetings and seminars. Rumors also suggested that it might be delayed because Martin intends to give the series a superb conclusion.

According to Telegraph, during a recent Q&A at the Guadalajara International Book Fair, Martin teased that his forthcoming novel will be featuring some forbidding business. Martin said that there are lots of dark chapters in "The Winds of Winter" that he is now writing.

George R.R. Martin previously explained that the sixth the book is entitled "The Winds of Winter" because he wanted readers to know that winter is coming. Martin finally said that the story won't be a happy feel-good one that fans may be looking for since winter is the time when things die, and cold, ice and darkness fill the world.
