We all know George R. R. Martin needs to get a move on and give us the next book in his A Song of Ice and Fire series.

But he’s got some tequila to drink first.

Martin took to his blog to tell readers that he plans to spend most of 2017 working on the forthcoming book, The Winds of Winter ― the sixth and penultimate in the fantasy series ― and that he doesn’t have many appearances scheduled for 2017.

The author also explained that his last 2016 appearance would take place in Guadalajara, Mexico, and that he planned to show up to the event, drink some tequila and then get on with his writing.

Here’s a brief excerpt from the post:

I’m one of the guests at the conference. I’ll be doing interviews, a press conference, a live streaming event, and a signing. I expect I will be doing some tequila tasting as well. I am informed that Guadalajara is the tequila capital of Mexico.

Oh, George. We love ya, and you deserve some shots. But ... Please finish this series soon.
