Jessa at DragonCon!

Labor Day is just around the corner. You know what that means? DragonCon! That is where you will find me, September 4-7, 2015. 

  

Each year, I head to Atlanta with tens of thousands of my closest friends to “let my geek run wild!” There will be celebrities, cosplay and all the science fiction and fantasy a gal could want. While I’m there, I will also speak on a number of panels. Following, is my schedule of events. Be sure to stop me and say “hello” 🙂
