I've never posted here before but I've trolled off/on for years, mostly stuck to Dragonmount ( xD ) for my forum but I'll be there if you need someone to shoot questions at Brandon. I live probably 10-15min from Joseph-Beth at the most.

I'm sure, after the prologue comes out tomorrow, we'll start putting together Tour question lists for those going to signings and interested in asking some.

Its looking more iffy for me now. I will be down the weekend right before it for something else and coming down twice in a week, plus the work I would miss, is a pricey proposition.

Redhope(Chrissy) and I are going to be there now that I don't have to worry about that pesky place I used to call work.

I look forward to meeting more of you there!

I should be able to make this one. I am going to ask a question that I have wanted to for quite a while. (whether Ishamael was loose during the events of A New Spring) I might have to ask something about one of the prophecies, but I will have to think on how to word it.

Loose, as in completely loose?

Does it really matter? We know he was messing with the world for 3,000 years during his partial captivity. I would hate to see you waste a question.

I really wish I could show up for this. I was going to call off work the next day, but my wife said she doesn't want to go. :(

Couple of notes from last night:

Only real questions specific to the book were about the WOT Encyclopedia which Harriet said will be released 12 months after AMoL.

Confirmed Asmosdean's killer will be revealed in this book (but we knew that already). Someone asked if he would let them know what page and Brandon laughed and said he's not making it that easy.

One question I wrote down when somenoe asked was:

"Will we see Demandred in the book?"

Brandon: *Big Smile* "What do you mean? You saw Demandred all the time! He's shows up all the time!"

Revised Question: "Will we find who Demandred's alter-ego is?"

Brandon: "I'm gonna have to RAFO that one."

I have some pictures but I'm at work and will have to do that later

The Tower Guard report mentioned other questions, like 'Is Shara just a red herring?', and 'Why was the female Choedan Kal sa’angreal destroyed during the cleansing of saidin, and not the male?' But they didn't give answers. That baffles me. Do they really think we care about all the other stuff?

Both were RAFO's. I was not the Tower Guard transcribing otherwise I may have been able to be a bit more in depth. Also, part of the issue with the incompleteness is the book store itself. The events manager barb, was decidedly unpleasant and treated us like we were just there to get in the way. So we were put in the backroom to wait till Brandon arrived which was 25-30mins before the signing. Brandon had to tell her we needed to be included which really screwed with our organization we had planned. They, the store did not want our blogger close for whatever reason and much was lost, ohh well.

That is so lame. And I thought this was one of Brandon's favorite bookstores? How can you like a bookstore with management like that?

Yeah one of the guys there named Brian had supported him since Elantris and the dude was great, unfortunately it seems he fell under the events manager and we didnt have his contact till it was too late. I was the first among equals for my group and I contacted Barb 1 day after learning I was selected to get info that Jennifer recommended we ask. She responded at first but only with promises to get back to me, which were not returned. I showed up at the event hoping at least to get a schedule of events so that we could plan out our games and activities as well as get ready for fans and pass out schwag. She told us no, hold on and basically didnt care since we were not "official" Tor or with Brandon. Once Brandon got there he told her straight out we were there to help him she grudgingly put us in auxiliary roles and kept her normal staff there, ohh and they refused to give us the schwag until easily 30-45mins into the signing until Brandon mentioned it. But yeah the fans got really screwed in the whole ordeal is my way of thinking.

At the Cincinnati signing I asked Brandon a question concerning our favorite killing machine!
I asked Brandon since Shadowspawn die when they go through gateways was the gholam dead, or is it a construct? Brandon explained to me that it was not shadowspawn and a gateway would not kill it. However he went on about Gholams being limited by someone who can travel. I didnt push that response bc someone constantly being hunted would invariably have a moment where they were unawares so it was not really a limitation for the Gholam to hunt channelers who can travel.

An obvious RAFO would we be seeing this particular gholam again? I did not ask it though.

Sorry guys. Brian asked me like a week ahead of time what the tower guards were supposed to do, and I redirected him to Jason. I didn't find out until the midnight release when I talked to Jennifer that I should have told him to contact her instead. Your experience sounds very frustrating.
