Talking About the Backlist

By: Angi Morgan

Congratulations to "Mary L." and "Bn100", the winners in Angi's giveaway. 
Thank you to all who participated!

I just found out that all my digital backlist is on sale for $1.99.  Okay the blatant promo is out of the way, but it got me thinking... If I could update my back list, what would I change?


I don’t know about other authors, but sometimes it’s hard to promote my backlist because I can always think of a way each book could be better. A writer hopefully improves with every story they write. It’s only been six years since my first book, HILL COUNTRY HOLD UP was released. And occasionally I have a moment of clarity where I slap my forehead and say, “Man, I should have put that into the book.”


I have to admit that I love this book. It was originally titled SEE JANE RUN and I wrote the opening scene as it happened around me (well, not the FBI or kidnapping portion). When I first saw the cover I was amazed at the resemblance to my grandson. I also beat myself up a little that I hadn’t thought to put the toddler in a yellow rain slicker.

So yes, there are a couple of things I’d add, maybe strengthen a scene where readers had a question. But ultimately, I hope the book is still a good read.


HE’D DO ANYTHING TO RESCUE HER KIDNAPPED SON… EVEN IF THAT MEANS TURNING TO THE FBI AGENT WHO DOESN’T KNOW HE’S A FATHER.

Dr. Jane Palmer had every intention of telling FBI agent Steve Woods he was a father. But the rehearsed lines and practiced responses are forgotten the moment her little boy is kidnapped. Now, heart breaking and on the verge of falling apart, Jane needs Steve more than ever.



After every attempt at putting old feelings to rest, Steve Woods never expects Jane back in his life. Especially not for this reason. Racing against a ticking clock, desperate to earn Jane’s trust, Steve still senses she’s not telling him everything, which makes him wonder why she’d come back to Texas in the first place. And what any of it has to do with the child he’ll do anything to rescue.

  1. I definitely binge read an author, if I love her books I will read all her books and not just once. I've been known to read the same book 6 times if I really love it.
