Reporting Back From NerdCon: Nerdfighteria


Joanna lives in Chicago with her husband, two cats, and extensive book collection. She spends her time alternately between various creative artistic pursuits and has a passion for wildlife and conservation. She still hasn’t decided what she’s going to be when she grows up, though she suspects she will probably be herself. Her debut novel, THREADWALKERS, will be released in October 2017 by 50/50 Press.

You can find her other ramblings at or by following her on twitter @joannavolavka which is mostly cat photos and retweets of the geek culture variety. Ask her about: movie activities, IGGPPCamp, House Organa, +5 Charisma, whimsical weirdness, nitwit oddment blubber tweak.

    This sounds like a wonderful con that really connects with its audience. Does it change location each year?

    • This was the first year that it was “Nerdfighteria” themed– Nerd Con: Stories happened the previous two years in Minneapolis. I’m not sure what the plan for it will be going forward, but I’m sure that will have info. ^_^
