About Us

Marie Landry and Jessica Tate are indie authors with a combined total of 16 published works ranging from short stories to novellas to novels. They both started out as book bloggers before taking the dive into self-publishing. Marie started her journey as an author in 2012 and Jessica started hers in 2013. The two of them wanted to put their knowledge and abilities to good use and decided to create a company to help their fellow indie authors on the road to success.

Marie Landry writes contemporary romances for women of all ages. With twelve years of graphic design experience and over five years experience designing book covers and various graphics, she knows that despite the saying "don't judge a book by its cover", people are drawn to visually appealing designs, and she wants to help authors grab readers' attention with beautiful covers and teasers.

Jessica Tate writes clean stories under her maiden name, Jessica Sankiewicz, and sexy romances under the pen name, Lilly Avalon. She has spent countless hours promoting her work through email, social media, and her newsletter. Jessica has also assisted other authors with their new releases by contacting bloggers for reviews and features.


As indie authors, Marie and Jessica both know the importance of getting your work out there where people will see it. One of the bonuses for selecting Sunrise Author Services is that we want you to succeed, too. To help bring you success, you will gain free promotion from our company when you sign up for any of our services.

All of our clients will get their book showcased on our website in a blog post, on our social media pages, and featured in our newsletter. If you get a cover or teaser designed by Marie, we will share it in all the aforementioned places as well. And the services don't stop there! If you run a sale for your book in the future, just let us know and we'll be happy to share or retweet your post.

Every author deserves a chance for their stories to be heard, and Marie and Jessica want to get your book in the hands of readers. We value the importance of reading, and we want to see you achieve your dreams.
