2012 Gathering Update: POSTPONED
They say that when men make plans God laughs. Apparently, it’s true.¬†The 2012 Gathering is being delayed to 2013 due to unforeseen circumstances.
But all is not lost! Read on for more‚Ä¶
Why are we delaying the event?
When we first set the wheels in motion for the event, we’d planned for it to be a celebration of the Books of Mortals series, which was scheduled to wrap up with Sovereign (Book 3) in September 2012.
In the past several months, Ted’s publishing schedule has changed drastically and Sovereign will now be released in 2013. Since the entire event is being built around the Book of Mortals series it simply makes sense to wait until Sovereign releases.
We had also planned to have Grammy-nominated singer (and fellow Dekkie) Jordin Sparks join us as part of the festivities. Due to some complications, that also needs to be pushed out a year.
Bottom line: We want to give you the best Gathering possible and we believe doing that means we need to postpone.
What happens next?
As we solidify details for the 2013 event, we will notify the entire Dekker community via email, Facebook, and Twitter. We do not yet have a date or location, but we’ll announce them as soon as we can.
What happens to my ticket? Will I lose it?
Everyone who received a ticket through the Book of Mortals sweepstakes will STILL get to keep those tickets. They will be honored at the 2013 event no matter what. You’re in.
If you do NOT have a ticket, we will post details on how to obtain one once the event is scheduled.
Thanks for your understanding. We, of all people, hate to delay a party, but it’s the right thing to do. You’ll hear from us soon.
