Tower Guards Selected


JenniferL

Three weeks ago we announced that we were taking applications for "Tower Guard" for the upcoming TOWERS OF MIDNIGHT signing tour. Like last year's Storm Leaders, these are volunteers that will assist Brandon and Harriet at each signing event. You might see them taking photos, writing notes for an official report or handing out some really cool Wheel of Time swag.

 

In total, we received 324 applications for 56 positions in eight cities, the most coming in for Provo, Utah's midnight release event. So if you didn't get chosen, don't feel bad. You're in good company. If you weren't chosen this year, please try again when A MEMORY OF LIGHT is released.

 

Here are the first names and last initials of everyone selected this year.

 

Note: There are some extra names on some lists. These are people who have made extraordinary contributions to the fandom and have been added to the list by request. They did not take a spot away from another Tower Guard.

Congrats you lucky bastards..... To bad for me Canada is always left out, perhaps our literacy rate is too high and the publishers don't see the need to promote their releases up here. Oh well, what can you do? perhaps send a letter to the author begging for a few Canadian dates on his tour...not likely to work though as he'd probably just say that he goes where they tell him.

I was selected but never got an email... How strange Jenn can you ensure that I am the correct Spencer P. and that my email address you sent it to is correct? Thank you I sure hope I'm the real spencer p. that won. Thanks.

Well, at least that settles the internal battle between my anti-social tendencies and the intense desire to serve... Heartfelt congrats to all who won, and I'll see some of you at the Provo signing :happy: .

Please once you post pictures/links/interviews don't take down the link this time. I discovered DM two months after the last Dallas showing and no one can tell me where those pictures are :(

congrats to everyone who got selected. I am sad there was no Justin M for the hanover, md tower guard hahaha. For heather J and tenesmus I have a post in the general discussion section under the social community part of the forum for anyone who wants to have dinner in the mall before the signing since I will also be in the crowd attending the event lol.

I am incredibly honored! I promise I will not disappoint. Sorry to everyone who wasn't selected, but look at it this way: you all probably have a better chance for next year since people probably won't get selected again. You'll be able to be involved with A MEMORY OF LIGHT. How awesome is that? I haven't checked my email, but if everyone from the Hanover, MD location would like to email me to get in touch, my address is rgmitchedds@gmail.com. See everyone at the signing!

Congratulations to all the hand-picked tower guards! Looking forward to seeing everyone in Cincinnatti even though I didn't make the cut.

Gratz to all the Chosen, I am so gutted I don't get to join you despite my perfectly serious offer to fly over from the UK (which was even OK-ed by my husband) - have a wonderful time everyone! I am terribly jealous :P
