Only just saw a link to this post on Twitter and read through it happily! Thanks for the great write up!
Also, I feel the need to say that you must read some of Brandon's work... he's amazing. Truly.
How he can continue kicking out such awesome books as he's still working on the Wheel of Time -which is taking FAR longer than he had ever anticipated, btw!- is beyond me and I continue to be impressed by his dedication not only to his own fans, but to Wheel of Time fans.
I look forward to meeting Brandon myself, whenever it is that he tours for Memory of Light. Which I will wait patiently for since we're all lucky to have someone finishing the series. Thanks for that ♥RJ♥, Harriet, Brandon and all of Team Jordan!
FTR... I'm proud to be a starry-eyed fangirl and I'm not fond of pink so I don't wear rose-colored glasses. *nod*
