Comic-Con@Home Virtual Panel!

Comic-Con is going virtual this year, for obvious reasons, and I was lucky enough to be included on a panel with four other incredible Voyager authors!

Galaxy Grrls, or the Female and Non-Binary Authors who Bridge the new Frontier of Space Fiction
Friday, July 24, 2020 : 3:00 – 4:00PM PT

Authors Nicky Drayden (Escaping Exodus), Marina Lostetter (Noumenon Ultra), Jessie Mihalik (Chaos Reigning), Valerie Valdes (Chilling Effect), and K.B. Wagers (A Pale Light in the Black) eye the history of space fiction through an entirely new lens. This panel is focused on the legacy of female and non-binary writers who came before, and the trailblazing of modern authors who are re-defining sex, gender, and society against the tapestry of the stars.


Since it’s a virtual event, we pre-recorded the panel, and I have to say, my fellow panelists were phenomenal! Marina volunteered to moderate as well as participate and she did a great job.

I, however, was incredibly nervous.

I don’t know if it was the fact that it was Comic-Con (a dream!) or what, but I got nervous like I haven’t in a very long time, even though I was sitting in my own office, staring at a webcam. I eventually got it under control, mostly, but the first ten minutes or so you’ll probably be able to hear my voice shake.

Come for the nervous rambling, stay for the great discussions. 😂

Despite my nerves, the whole panel was incredibly fun, so you should definitely check it out! Best of all, it’s completely free!

And if your TBR is looking a little thin, pick up the other panelists’ books! They are all writing fantastic sci-fi. 💕

  1. Comic-Con!! Eeeeeeee!! So very excited for you! And for me, since I get to see this panel even from the Boston area. :). Congrats!!

    1. It’s going up on YouTube, so I believe it will be available after the fact, but I’m not 100% sure.

      Edit: I just checked, and the videos from Wednesday are available today, so I think you’ll have a few days at least to watch it. :)
