Bone Diggers Cover Reveal

As you may know, Bone Diggers will have a paperback and ebook edition and I’m so excited to show you the revamped print cover. But first the blurb!

When everyone IRL lies, the only person you can trust is an NPC.

Dirty little secrets can’t be hidden behind player avatars, because Bone Diggers like Owen expose the lives behind the code. When his two worlds blur, he must decide which is more important: his freedom, or the game. The right choices will be rewarded with fame, fortune, and adventure. A wrong call can cost him both lives. But playing the game is what Owen does, and he’s good at it…as long as his real-life adventures don’t prove more perilous than his digital swordfights. In the real world, there is no walkthrough.

If that doesn’t scream that bi video gamer aesthetic, I dunno what will. I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts since I had this gem hidden for a really long time. 💖💜💙

Phaethon Review

Hackers, fae, and a new breed of corporate greed battle over the future of the human race….

Hacker couple Jack and Rosie crack technology, but the newest device, the Phaethon, isn’t like other phones. The parts are junk, yet it can do the impossible. Through gentle prodding and data theft, they learn it’s powered remotely…by a living creature.

Cracking the Phaethon enters them into a war. Some, like Calthine, the bitter Bogle, are on their side. Others are controlled by a new type of fae; the bosses of the Phaethon corporation, who have steel for eyes and iron for souls. Now, the hackers have to fight creatures they’ve never heard of to save the friends they’ve just made.

Rachel Sharp is an author and lifetime member of the Somewhat Eccentric Creative Persons Club (which she just invented). Her books include the Planetary Tarantella trilogy, as well as the hacker & fae novel Phaethon from Pandamoon Publishing.

Originally from Vermont, she now lives in New York City with her partner, several plants, and her boundless sense of inappropriate humor. At time of writing, she is working on entirely too many projects. The previous statement will be true regardless of time of reading.

She also lives with chronic illness, plays ukulele, and tries to save the planet.

REVIEW ★★★★★
I adore this book. I think it’s cute, it’s sweet, it’s adventurous. It has main characters that I really wish were my friends. Characters so real I feel like I have a chance of meeting them in the great wild that is this urban fantasy hacker filled world. It made watching Finding Bigfoot after reading oddly fun. It’s really a strange and fun book full of tech and creatures.
Do yourself a favor and grab this gem of a book!

Featured Wattpad Science Fiction: Bone Diggers

I have so much to say about Wattpad and I don’t really know where to start. So, let’s start with the news. Bone Diggers was selected to be featured on the website!

I was literally jumping up and down when I was approached for this. Posting on Wattpad has been such a surreal and wonderful thing that is so different than traditional publishing routes. I don’t consider Bone Diggers published. Being published means the end of the writing and editing side. This experience was more like inviting a bunch of strangers along with me as I write, edit, and then in the coming future, publish.

I mean, look at this map. Look at all of you. People all over the world hitting up the internet because they want something new, want something shared with them.  Again, and forever, thank you for sharing this with me.

Link by Summer Wier Review!

link-coverI think the first description of LINK I heard was Stargate meets [something]. It doesn’t matter what you say after Stargate because at that point my brain yells sold! Some books have the pitfall of why does the “normal life” matter after this life changing event happens, but the world’s are so interwoven that I didn’t feel that here. In the story, Kira is presented with two very different lives, and the pros and cons of each continue to stack up. This creates a great balance that later on starts rocking back and forth in an increasingly tense way.

LINK sets The Shadow of Light series up in an otherworldly fashion without ever feeling like the whole first book is set up. I now know this cast in a very real way and curious what happens to the whole cast.

The only down side is LINK sets itself up as a bit mystery, one that I try to figure out beforehand to distracting lengths. This likely is just overthinking because I lovingly want to fact check explanations to real astrophysics. The science of this science fiction is strong I just wish I had the answers a bit sooner so I could have bought into the rules faster.

Review:  ★ ★ ★ ★ ½

If you aren’t convinced yet here’s some more about LINK!

For seventeen-year-old Kira, there’s no better way to celebrate a birthday than being surrounded by friends and huddled beside a campfire deep in the woods. And with a birthday in the peak of summer, that includes late night swims under the stars.

Or at least, it used to.

Kira’s relaxing contemplation of the universe is interrupted when a piece of it falls, colliding with her and starting a chain of events that could unexpectedly lead to the one thing in her life that’s missing—her father.

Tossed into a pieced-together world of carnivals and gypsies, an old-fashioned farmhouse, and the alluring presence of a boy from another planet, Kira discovers she’s been transported to the center of a black hole, and there’s more to the story than science can explain. She’s now linked by starlight to the world inside the darkness. And her star is dying.

If she doesn’t return home before the star’s light disappears and her link breaks, she’ll be trapped forever. But she’s not the only one ensnared, and with time running out, she’ll have to find a way to save a part of her past and a part of her future, or risk losing everything she loves.

Dreamy, fluid, and beautiful, Link pairs the mystery of science fiction with the minor-key melody of a dark fantasy, creating a tale that is as human as it is out of this world.

Available now from Amazon, and other retailers.
