Christmas has been and gone a good time was had by all now the new year beckons time to finish my new novel.
I cant wait for the new series of Game of thrones series eight, series seven complete. Who will sit on the Iron Throne? I think it will be John Snow along with Daenerys Targaryen, who I think he will marry and have an heir to the throne. The new series will not be shown until 2009 The excitement is building I have watched all the episodes to date twice and will probably watch the whole series again. Will they build a huge weapon to kill the dragon that has been turned into an undead monster?
