NEW YORK (AP) – Yes, George RR Martin really is working on that next book.

The “Game of Thrones” author released a chapter Thursday from his very long-awaited sixth volume of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” fantasy series, “The Winds of Winter.” The chapter appears on Martin’s web site and is told from the perspective of Sansa Stark, living under the name Alayne Stone. She is played on the HBO adaptation by Sophie Turner.

Season Five of “Game of Thrones” premieres at 9 p.m. EDT April 12 on HBO. Martin has already cut back on personal appearances and decided against writing for the sixth season so he can concentrate on “The Winds of Winter.” The previous “Fire and Ice” book, “A Dance With Dragons,” came out in 2011.
