GRRM’s official site has been updated with an extensive update of his “Not a Blog”, which includes information concerning the progress he’s made on various fronts but also the fact that A Dance with Dragons has not progressed as far as he hoped because of the various disturbances and obligations he had. He will not finish it by the end of this year, and will no longer post speculation as to when it will be done. In the “News” section, GRRM has announced that he has concluded negotiations to allow Haute Productions to produce miniature busts based on the series, and possible future production of pre-painted resin statues and even a chess set. The sculptor, Justice Joseph, is well-regarded in the business.
Other updates include some new foreign edition covers in “Cover Art”.
