From Panel Lotteries

Quote

Will I only be allowed to win one panel lottery for the whole weekend?

There is only one panel lottery taking place each day, Friday - Monday, and you have the same chances of winning a panel lottery each day. You can enter all four panel lotteries as long as you have a valid badge for the days your chosen panel takes place. You have an equal chance to win all four panel lotteries and go to all four panels. Winning one panel lottery does not preclude you from winning another. You do have to submit for each panel lottery that you want to attend. Entering into and winning a panel lottery does not preclude you from making a panel reservation at the galaxy or twin suns stage for non-lottery panels.

STAR WARS CELEBRATION SIGNINGS: This year, autographings are going to be run a bit differently than in years past. You will need to buy a book from either Anderson's Bookstore (who will be hosting many of the author signings) or from the Del Rey booth before you can join the autograph line.

Having done so, though, you can also get autographs on other books you brought from home.

This is the policy for all authors signing at Anderson's, not just me. I assume the lines will be properly managed so that if you buy a book you WILL be able to get it autographed. (Just make sure to keep your receipt.)

I'll have a signing on each of the five days of the convention, plus a couple of panels throughout the weekend.

So they originally said that you’d have to claim lottery slots and there would be a way to claim unused spots through the panel reservation system.  Apparently that’s not the case anymore.  So for those of us who didn’t win any of the big panels, now we’re SOL.  I loathe online lotteries.
