by Nicole Arlyn

SugarspearChronicles cover

Genre: Fantasy


The Sugarspear Chronicles, the incredible twenty-six-novella saga that started with a little girl and her willow tree, is finally available in one complete collection.

The Sugarspear Chronicles: The Complete Collection is the story of young Sadie Sugarspear, a girl who endures intolerable abuse by reading about a fantasy world filled with incredible sights and outlandish people—a place she’s only ever encountered through her real father’s storybook.

One day, when the cruelty becomes too much to bear, Sadie runs away and hides inside her beloved willow tree. To her surprise, the tree opens, sending Sadie down into the abyss, into a land she’s only ever read about—where she must being a long, terrifying, and heartbreaking journey home.

Readers can now enjoy the entirety of author Nicole Arlyn’s dark fantasy saga in one complete book. This complete collection also includes a note from the author detailing the inspiration and events that led to The Sugarspear Chronicles.


Enjoy this excerpt.

She stood up, carrying with her this vision of a place she was seeing in her mind. It was a beautiful room, wide and spacious with a breeze of roses entering through a clear window. A hand carved wooden desk sat under the window and on top of the desk was a pile of fresh parchment and a big clear jar of dark purple ink. A pen with a blue feather sat on top the paper.

That was all. All she needed now. In this moment, a desire so strong rose up in her and lifted her spirit. She desired this place, this ink, and that’s all. Her body was done. It had exhausted itself, a physical exhaustion beyond anything she had felt, like she had run hundreds of days without stopping. She rested her head against the tree. The bugs spread apart and stopped crawling as they felt in her breath, the kind of truth that is undeniable. The truth of her exhaustion. She told them all, “If only I could have, a quiet place all my own where I can write by the sunshine, the smell of the sea in the wind that comes to me.”

The bones were breaking under her feet, the bones in her hands, crushing as she pushed again. Nothing left. No human strength in her.

But the tree. The tree had strength to feel her. It knew her hands, her breath, it had taken her stories, her secrets, her prayers. It always heard her. It shaded her from her shady world. It danced its branches around her and swung with her when she swung from the swing that was no more. It knew her roots. It couldn’t hold onto itself like she couldn’t. It wanted to speak back to her and this would be its way…

    What’s the hardest part of writing a book for you?

    • Nicole Arlyn says:

      getting rid of all distractions! I am incredibly disciplined so I ahve no problem at all with that. And i never get writers block and I can write all day, I can write my life away really! So the hardest part is always explaining to people why I can’t be there, why my phone is off, why they can’t find me!

  4. Freya D says:

    Do you ever get writer’s block? And how do you overcome it?

    • Nicole Arlyn says:

      Freya! I never get writers block. My problem is more harnessing and honing in on what i need to do. I write very quickly and my editor always tells me to slow down. But no writers block ever. I just follow the characters like watching a movie to see what they do and say. I try to leave myself out of it. I try! If I feel I’m forcing something then I take a walk. Then the picture seems to come to me again. I go with my guts whatevers going on. Probably why I have to hone in on structure more. But its all a feeling more than anything….

    An interesting synopsis.
