the us editor of grrm has stated this,somewhere in 2010.
"We're hoping to have a finished manuscript by Christmas. He's told me he has five chapters left and bits of each chapter are done. He really wants it done by the end of the year. We really—I mean really—want to announce the pub date in January."
i think her name is Annie Groell or Anna Groell or was it Anne Groell
whatever her name is called Fuck any Groell until ADwD is released.
meanwhile keep swearing!
*on the other hand what possibly could she do if you have grrm as writer
**on another hand ,why should George increase writing speed when he has such an editor.
(if George had more hands as two he could easily eat more pizzas at the same time)
***just want to mention that is still January!!
