RebelReadersPeople sometimes ask me why I chose such a small publisher for my debut novel. I could give a long, complex answer, but it would boil down to this: I support and believe in what they do. Dreaming Robot Press wants to inspire children, especially diverse children and girls, to become scientists and engineers, and they do it through science fiction and fantasy. Right now, when there are so many battlefronts, so much injustice in the world, this is how I choose to make positive change.

In keeping with their mission, Dreaming Robot Press has just announced that they’re giving away two books aimed especially at inspiring kids to be scientists: Goodnight Stories for Rebel Readers: 100 Tales of Extraordinary Women and Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World.I encourage you to enter and be part of the change you want to see in the world.
