George R.R. Martin Appearnces

OK, so not long ago I did a blog post about the Game of of Thrones panel at Comic-Con. Today, George R.R. Martin postedn entry about him being there. see his post: http://grrm.livejournal.com/378521.html

Here are the important parts in regards to George and Comic-Con, that is Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones related:

Thursday, 2:30 to 3:30, I will be appearing in the main autograph area (the Sails) at Table 3, with DONATO GIANCOLA.  The two of us will be signing copies of the 2015 Ice & Fire calendar, which will be making its debut at the convention.
 
Friday, we have the GAME OF THRONES panel in Hall H.  I'll be there, with showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss and various members of our cast.  This year CRAIG FERGUSON will be moderating.  Hall H seats 7,000 people... but of course 150,000 people attend comicon, so if you want to see the panel, best get in line... ah... now.  Afterward I will join the cast for interviews and a poster signing and more interviews.
 
Saturday, 11:00 am to 12 noon, I return to the Sails for a Random House autograph session.  This time I will be at Table 7.  This is the time and place to get your books signed.  Copies will be on sale in the autograph area, if you don't want to drag your old ones to San Diego.
 
Saturday, 4:15 pm to 5:15 pm, I'll be in Room 6A for a panel on epic fantasy, part of an all-star lineup of panelists with Patrick Rothfuss, Joe Abercrombie, and others.

Sunday, 12:30 to 1:30, back to the floor for another signing.  This time I will be signing copies of the HEDGE KNIGHT and SWORN SWORD graphic novels at the ComiXology booth, on behalf of Jet City Comics.
 
As you can see, lots of opportunity to meet George, although most likely very briefly. PLUS, lots of chance for him to announce The Winds of Winter. That is just hopeful thinking on my part, but what better place to announce your new book?
Maybe this:




World exclusive: Next month, HarperVoyager will be hosting an event with George RR Martin and Robin Hobb. The event will take place in a central London venue on 19th August 2014. Subscribers to our newsletter will be the first to hear when tickets go on sale later on this week. Sign up here: http://bit.ly/GeorgeAndRobin
 
Should George NOT announce Winds at comic Con or the Hobb event, keep patient until the end of the year...something tells me we will have word this year. 
 
I will do my best to keep up with the Con coverage...especially if anything Game of Thrones / Ice and Fire news pops up. 

So to those going - have fun! Those not going enjoy watching the coverage!
