We’re excited to announce Jessica has been invited to be a panelist at this year’s Nebula Awards conference in Pasadena, CA.

When: June 6-9th, 2024. Her specific panel is at 4:30 p.m. PST, Friday June 7, 2024

Where: The Westin Pasadena, 191 N. Los Robles Ave, Pasadena, CA 91101 AND Online

What Jessica will be talking about: Write Well, Stay Well: Self-care for Authors. This panel offers tips and tricks for authors to engage in self-care, for both their physical bodies & their mental health.

The scoop from Jessica: The Nebula Awards are like the Oscars for Sci-fi/Fantasy writers. There’s a red-carpet gala Saturday night that is live-streamed and the conference has a virtual option as well.

I’ve applied to speak at this conference the last 3? years. This year they not only placed me on a panel, SFWA was generous enough to provide me a scholarship for the $449 conference fee. I’m equally excited and overwhelmed at the opportunity.

I’m excited because I know I will slay that panel. I’m a great speaker, and my coaching work makes me the perfect person for this particular topic.

I’m overwhelmed because this is the type of industry conference where major players show up, and it’s highly unlikely I’m going to know anyone at the conference. The thought of constant peopling, walking a red carpet, and the travel involved to an unfamiliar city may have made past-me decline the invite.

But, one of the things I tell myself every single morning is Doors open for me, and I walk through them. A gargantuan door just opened, and I just need to be brave enough to walk through it–so I am.

If you’re going to the conference, please let me know. It would be great to meet a friendly human in real life.
