SQUEEE!! Less than 2 weeks until DERELICT is out into the world!!!
And on the heels of #Weneeddiversebooks :
Ro Maldonado is a female computer programmer, who is not straight
Nomi Nakamura is a female Japanese communications officer
Barre and Jem Durbin are brothers, of mixed race of South African/Afrikaans decent.
They are all fully realized characters, with agency and their own agendas.
Oh, and the story is a SF/Space opera about a ship’s AI with PTSD.
