"mehr" sounds like "mir" here

I used to have that trouble all the time but now I've come to recognize the ever so slight difference. "Mehr" has a tiny bit softer sound, let's say like 'air' whereas "mir" is more like"hear." I think it's ok here not crystal clear but distinguishable. Hang in there it'll work out.

Wirst du im ernst mehr Buecher veroeffentlichen George Martin?

I have got to ask this now that I think of it. Is there any difference in the word origins/etymology of veröffentlichen and Verlag? Why are they different (or at least appear to be)?
