Today is Robert Jordan's 56th birthday and he'll be celebrating it by... taking a day off from writing.
Sounds like RJ is going to party in a way that only people from South Carolina know how!
In a few weeks he's off to Turkey for a large bookfair in Istanbul. He'll be doing some public appearances and private vacationing.

It was six years ago today that Dragonmount.com opened up to the public. Although it wasn't exactly pretty back then, the website grew very quickly. We've made it this far, and have done pretty well for the most part. Recently we were described as "the site that launched a thousand ships."
One of our birthday traditions is to open up the DM Birthday board, where you can go share your memories of DM. Even if you're new to the site, swing by and tell us how you're experience has been. In ad

Both are read by Kate Reading (who reads the female POV's) and Michael Kramer (who does the males). Both CD sets include a bonus interview with Robert Jordan.
After a long and exciting weekend in San Diego, CA, we have some exciting things to report. Robert Jordan was present at the convention, and we had a chance to spend a lot of time with him. Jason (DM Admin) will post an in-depth summary of the weekend on the message boards soon.
But a few things can be confirmed from this weekend for sure:
There will definitely only be two more books in the series. So twelve books total, not including the prequels.
Hundreds from the Dune Sea Garrison of the 501st Legion are descending on Phoenix Comiccon this weekend. These Storm Trooper Bad-asses are “Bad Guys Doing Good,” said Joe LaFortune, Commanding Officer of the Garrison. “We are part of a worldwide costuming club with a focus on the bad guys.” Even members from New Mexico attended.Here ...
