THE SUGARSPEAR CHRONICLES: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION, available January 27!
The Sugarspear Chronicles begins with young Sadie suffering intolerable cruelty at the hands of her brutal stepfather. When she is alone with no one to protect her, Sadie turns to the memory of her real father, Sam Sugarspear, and the one possession he left behind: a book about an imaginary land ruled by a king who grants wishes.
One day when the abuse reaches unimaginable heights, Sadie runs away and hides inside a crevice in her beloved willow tree, where she goes to escape from the nightmare of reality. But to her surprise, the tree opens up, sending Sadie falling down, down, down into a land she’s only ever read about.
But that land is not at all like what her father described in his storybook. Instead of a blissful escape, Sadie finds herself face-to-face with the beginning of what will become a long, terrifying journey home.
Throughout her travels, she battles evil foes, giant serpents, and an evil queen, explores disappearing islands and caves filled with wonders, sails an unending ocean alongside adventurers and cowards. She grows and learns and faces her demons. She discovers love and heartbreak.

The Complete Sugarspear Collection:Novella #1 - Sadie Sugarspear and the Weeping Willow (PERMAFREE):
EXCERPTShe sat on top of the fence watching the sky for rain. Instead she saw the faces that the clouds made morphing from evil to angel in one blink of her eyes. She ran her hands along the old brown wood, digging her fingertips hard in, crusted blood under her fingernails. She kicked her legs against the fence half wanting to knock it over and half wanting to fall with it, but it wouldn’t fall. She rubbed her thighs with the splinters until they burned and then made a fist with her right hand and bit down on it. She bit hard enough to stop her own tears. Only cry when the rain comes, she thought. That way the rain would wash away her tears and no one would know. She saw a caterpillar sitting beside her and picked it up.“No one knows youʼre here but me,” she whispered. She laid the caterpillar where she found it. She opened her hands and kept waiting to catch the rain. She waited as the sky twisted around her, sealing her in a mist she wished only the sky could see through.*****It took three days to pass through the dead bodies. Three days she thought to tell him who she was, who she really was, but each time some words might come from her lips, they never made it out. She knew she was living outside of time, and she didn’t know time inside herself. She didn’t want him to throw her away again or hesitate to touch her if he thought she might still be a child... even though now, she was far from child. It was a journey through black rocks, dust mountains, burnt terrain, empty wells, valleys with dead horses, fields of stems. Some of the sights were familiar to Sadie but others made her become trancelike inside the sounds of wordless echoes, callings from the land.When she closed her eyes, he stared hard through the rest of her body—the way the skirt of her gown rode up to her knees and her legs spread and her hips hooked into his pelvis. She was scarred but soft, small but strong, and he was puzzled at how a woman could be full of so much strength and so much fragility at the same time.“You’re a precious jewel,” he said, “I hope to treat you as you are.” It was everything he needed. Woman. Who came like rain from clouds that could not.
