NEW YORK (AP) - Author George R.R. Martin is progressing little by little on that next book.

Martin this week posted an excerpt from his long-awaited “The Winds of Winter,” the sixth novel in his “A Song of Ice and Fire” series. The excerpt focuses on Princess Arianne Martell and her reports back to her father, Prince Doran Martell of Dorne.

The previous installment was “A Dance With Dragons” and came out in 2011. Martin now has fallen behind the HBO adaptation “Game of Thrones.”

Martin also posted an excerpt a year ago. He discouraged fans from thinking he was nearly done. He warns on his website Not a Blog: “The sample will give you a taste. For the rest, you will need to wait.”

The new excerpt can be found on GeorgeRRMartin.com.
