Social Badges

Two posts in one day! Who knew that was possible?

In any case, BookCon is upon us. And I know I’ve shared a social badges post before but I really want this to catch on at BookCon. I’ve been to other cons where these are a thing and it really makes the experience that much easier ESPECIALLY if you have social anxieties. So please wear these if you need them and respect those who are wearing them this year.

Green: Talk to me! I like being social!

Yellow: I’m a little shy. Please let me start the conversation.

Red: Please do not talk to me.

J.M.Tuckerman is a neurodivergent writer with a big education. She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, an MA in Writing, and a BA in Writing Arts (specializing in Creative Writing, New Media Writing, and Publication; concentrating in New Media Production), which she somehow managed to earn despite her three very loud and large dogs. Jessica was lucky enough to intern at Quirk Books and Picador, USA while earning her masterโ€™s degrees. Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessicaโ€™s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.
