The Winds of Winter book has not released yet and the fans of the series are eagerly waiting for any kind of updates. George RR Martin keeps saying that he is very close to writing books and it will come out soon, but there are no solid updates on the release date of TWOW. The situation is about to change as GRRM is apparently saying that he has finished writing the final drafts of the books and now only the publication process remains.
Only the release of "Winds of Winter" will complete this December.

It has been eight years since the last book in the ASOIAF series was released and after the worst ending to Game of Thrones TV series, demands for the book have increased to a huge extent. Here is what George RR Martin has to say on ‘The Winds of Winter’ release date and when can we expect the same in bookstores.
George RR Martin has Finished Writing ‘The Winds of Winter’
George RR Martin is done with the final draft of ‘The Winds of Winter’ and very soon could announce the release date, as per the latest reports. The 71-year-old author went on a business trip recently and it indicates that he has finished writing the book and is now in contract talks with the publishers. GRRM himself gives regular updates on his work and life on his blog and in the recent post titled “Bring Me My Pipe” the author himself confirmed that he had been to New York which is his favorite city in the world.

Martin wrote on the blog post, “on the business side, I check in with all my publishers, agents, editors, friends and colleagues at HBO. I often do a signing or an interview, or some sort of public event to announce the same.” It means that George RR Martin is meeting with the editors and publishers in New York and the purpose could be the publishing of “The Winds of Winter.”
The Winds of Winter is the Top Priority for GRRM
Many fans of the book series are fearing that GRRM might not finish ‘The Winds of Winter’ as he is busy in other HBO projects such as Game of Thrones” prequel titled House of the Dragon.
I don’t think “GRRM allegedly submits piles of illiterate copy to meet deadlines but is mainly worried about inscrutable nerd shit and writing tv scripts” rises to the level of an open secret but if you have information and a reason to gripe we’d love to know what you know!

But the author says there is no need to worry as TWOW is his first priority and he will finish it soon before any other projects. If everything goes as per the plan, The Winds of Winter by GRRM could have an early 2020 release date.
