Hung Up on You
Publication date: January 14th 2020
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Julia is single and happy, thank you very much. Try telling that to her happily-coupled bestie, though. She’s so determined to pair Julia off, she brings an extra guy friend along on a weekend getaway, in what’s clearly a set-up attempt. Julia’s interest is immediately piqued by sweet, sexy, nerdy Zack. There’s just one problem: he’s still hung up on his ex. Big time.
Despite knowing that – and despite her attraction to him – it doesn’t stop her friends from throwing them together every other second, insisting they’d make the perfect couple. But Julia is determined to friend zone him. At least until he suggests they pretend to date to get their respective friends off their backs.
At first, their fake “dating” is more friendship than fireworks. But as they get closer, the lines begin to blur between them, and Julia realizes she has to either shut down her developing feelings for Zack or let him in. The question is: can she fully trust him with her heart? Or does his heart still belong to his ex?
Marie Landry's life revolves around books; when she's not writing them, she's reading them, taking pictures of them for bookstagram, or blogging about them. An avid reader from a young age, she loves getting lost in characters' worlds, whether they're of her own making or someone else's. She particularly loves coming-of-age stories with as much of an emphasis on self-discovery as on romance...but don't leave out the romance!
When not doing bookish things, Marie can be found daydreaming (in general, but often about traveling through Europe), marathon-watching shows on Netflix, and taking photographs. She lives in a cozy apartment in Ontario, Canada with the best roommate ever, and only sometimes imagines it's actually a flat in London.
One memory about Christmas I have that I wouldn't say is a favorite memory, but it is one that makes me laugh. Every year, my siblings and I would get a call from Santa. He'd ask us what we wanted and would chat with us. As you can imagine, that was super exciting. Until we got older and wiser and figured out who was really calling. I remember getting the call and realizing it was my grandpa calling. Which I pointed out. When "Santa" disputed me, I insisted. No, this was Papa. I recognized his voice.
I have to wonder what went through my grandpa's (and parents) mind. Was he sad this innocent tradition was over since I was the youngest in the family? Compared to my siblings, was I faster or slower on figuring it out? I don't recall my siblings saying anything about Papa pretending to be Santa, so I figure Mom and Dad must have told them not to tell me. Unless I was the first to figure it out among my siblings. Maybe one day, I'll ask my parents those questions.

As a kid, I was not a strong or fast reader. It didn’t help that I wasn’t a fan of the books I was supposed to study at school. How to kill of love of reading: force someone to read boring books and write long-winded essays about them. When I was about twelve, I was introduced to The Hobbit. Oh. My. Gosh! Now this was a story! That year I devoured Lord of the Rings and continued to sink my hooks into any fantasy I could find. I felt like my whole world had opened. I’d at last found where I belonged. This was when the seed was first planted that maybe I too could create a whole new world for readers to enjoy.
After lots of starts and stops, lots of learning the craft of writing, lots of wrestling with fears and doubts, Wielder’s Prize was born. It’s exactly the kind of story I love to read—adventure, magic, action, twists. It’s about Jasmine who has always lived aboard a ship on the high seas.
Snatched from the only home she’s ever known, Jasmine is forced to work as a crew member of a different ship. To survive, she must dodge her captor who has a personal vendetta against her, outsmart a fearsome magic wielder who has taken a dangerous interest in her, and get back to her ship. Somehow.
Just when she thinks things couldn’t get worse, she learns she too is a wielder—an untrained wielder who is a threat to everyone on board if she can’t control her magic. And she’s not the only out-of-control wielder on the high seas. The secret of that wielder could shatter everything Jasmine thought she knew.
Time and hope is running out. At any cost, she must get back to her ship and discover the truth behind all the secrets before everything is lost.
Today is launch day!! The ebook and paperback are now available on Amazon https://amzn.to/2kaZKSV!
