Who is Dell Zero? Why is she an outsider, and how will she make her way? Amazing artist and author Lindy Moone, who has been at my virtual elbow since early drafts of Dell Zero, has designed a cover for this post-apocalyptic novel with images that provoke questions.
The cover is not only visually stunning: it captures feelings of the main character neglected by the original, shown at right. That cover hinted at elements of the situation but ignored the young woman at the heart of the story.
Here’s the new book description:
Into a sexless, controlled society of drug-induced immortals comes Dell, a rare, untainted human with female characteristics.
I call myself Dell, but my name is unrecorded. I’ve always been hidden, sheltered by my guardians on the outlands of the Chapter. Now my guardians are gone, reassigned. They will not remember me.
I am young. I want to be loved, to be touched. Is there anyone in the Chapter like me?
I have no number. My identity band is false–it hangs loose, unconnected to my veins. It won’t get me into the Chapter. If I do get in, I’ll live forever, but I know what forever is like for my guardians. I will no longer be me.
I am Dell–Dell Zero–untransformed and mortal. I will make my own way
