The Nacogdoches Film Festival rolled out the red carpet Friday night for one of America's favorite authors.
Game of Thrones writer, George R R Martin, made his first appearance at the 4th annual event during a VIP event at the Nacogdoches Convention and Visitors Bureau.
"I've only been here for a short while, but I do enjoy it," Martin said.
Martin will have a book signing at the Hastings in Nacogdoches on Saturday and will be part of a Q&A later that night. Martin said he really enjoys traveling to film festivals.
“At film festivals in particular, you hope to enjoy the films, martin said. "You usually get to see some interesting films from new directors and new screen writers, but beyond that I enjoy the content and the networking.”
