it doesn't specifically refer to JordanCon on his events calendar (which is on April 20-22, 2012) but there is a convention on 4/20/2012 that he is attending... :eek:

ETA: just saw this link:

Well geez. Are they conspiring to make it a sucky con? No new book, no author...

Honestly, is there even a point to have one if BS isn't showing along with no new material?

Are Harriet and Maria going to be there?

Yeah as far as we know team jordan is still going to be there and that's good :)

The only sucky thing is that it's probably the last Jordan Con before the new book comes out, so it would have been nice to ask Wheel of Time questions...
Plus with Brandon there it is more likely he would read a small part from the new book. (which would be finished in first draft)

@Ishara: it's doesn't mean it's going to be a sucky con. It's also very fun to hang out with each other and to discuss all theories :) :) :) :) :) :)
Remember: Theoryland also had meets without Brandon or team Jordan there and it was always fun. (for example Las Vegas)

Only it's likely there will be less possibilities to have wot questions answered. But if we remember last year, ther were already less Q and A panels.

With no Brandon, there may be less incentive for people to travel across the country or around the world to attend, so less people to hang out with...

True, but remember. It's the last Jordan Con before the last book comes out. We still get to hang out with each other, have lot's of theory discussions, perhaps have Alan telling something and telling us he made it up, Maria explaining stuff, fun stories by Harriet and Wilson :D

Do it!!

I'm still coming, just to hang out with you all, but (and I'll admit that after my last performance re: BS, not precisely relishing a repeat, LOL). I'm happy with Maria and Alan, really. So don't no one come on account of the lack of book!

AMOL is not going to be published until November of 2012 so there won't be a newly published book to talk about at JCON III

Will there be a jordancon 13 with new book then and all that? I was gonna go to this one for last book and all but now idk I'm thinking wait till next one?

Isabel

Juan:Jordan Con will continue to be there ;)
However, it really depends on when hte book is published.
If the last book is published in july 2012, than by april 2013, people will have less to talk about.
While in april 2012 there will still be lot's of theory panels.

Jen says they are already negotiating hotels for JordanCon 2013. That will be the last one.

Isabel

Huh, I talked to Jennifer last year and she was planning to keep doing Jordan Con. But also with other writers.

Tam is the one who told me it will be the last one, I think. I don't remember how long ago that was.

Juan

What month would jordancon 2013 be in? I suppose depending on the month I would also decide between 2012 and 2013. Man that's quite a wait... I had my mind set on this Jordancon being last one. Now idk what to do...

Isabel

Jordan Con has always been in april. So it will be april 2013.

I talked to Jennifer and she said that 2013 won't be the last Jordan con :) :) :)

Juan

Thanks Isa. I wonder if this April will be easier than the following.... Oh man. I'll see as the time approaches. Which would be more fun with more people...... This one... Or the next... Hmmm decisions, decisions...

I think the amount of people at Jcon 2013 will be depended on a few factors:
- How many people came to Jcon 2012. (money wise not everyone can make it to both)
-How they liked the last book?
-When did the last book came out?
- What other writers will be there at Jcon 2013 ;)

But remember a Jcon in which the last book is already out is different than one in which you will have lot's of theory pannels.
