EPIC FAIL!!  Saturday, February 18, 2012, I went to Gallifrey 2012 at the Marriott by LAX.  Knowing from FB that the author Nancy Holder would be there I brought several of her books to sign.  Arrived at LAX right around 11.45 and after going through the convention's FRACKED UP registration (OMG, it was worse than ACen's foulup from a few years back and that was because ACen was maliciously hacked, this was because the registration people were not on the ball), I get my badge and stuff.  Hang around folks who are there including Mike Tax from Chicago, Sara Jackson from Riverside SciFi http://www.meetup.com/riversidescifi .  After attending a few things and scoping out the dealers room.  I go to the autographing areas expectjng to find Ms.  Holder and there I'm told that her signing time was earlier in the afternoon.  EPIC FAIL; BTW, I suck, too!

I know that feeling all too well. I went to the Sunday of a Creation Con many years back (B5 was still on), expecting, as the ad on TV had said, to find Mira Furlan there that day. Nope. Bill Mumy was, however (apparently, someone screwed up and switched their appearance schedules). I had something very specific to have Mira sign, but Bill was awesome and brought it back to the set with him... after I ran around the building getting an envelope and postage... got it six months later, signed by her.

It's frustrating expecting to find someone there and ending up missing them. I know it all too well.
