New Book Deal News!

I’m SO happy to finally, finally be able to announce my exciting book news!

My friend and fellow author, Amalie Howard and I have sold our first adult romance series to Entangled Publishing!

If that screenshot from Publishers Marketplace is difficult to read...

Co-authors Amalie Howard and Angie Morgan's MY ROGUE, MY RUIN, pitched as a regency Robin Hood romance, as part of the LORDS OF ESSEX SERIES, to Alethea Spiridon at Entangled, in a three-book deal, by Liza Fleissig at Liza Royce Agency for Amalie Howard and Ted Malawer at Upstart Crow Literary for Angie Morgan.
**cue glitter, rainbows, and magical dancing unicorns!**

So yes, a book deal for a romance series! A true blue, historical romance series that Amalie and I are so excited to share with you.
As you can see, I’m going to be writing as Angie Morgan. I’m still writing for young adult and middle grade audiences as Page Morgan, because while many of my YA readers (who are young adults at heart!) will be able to jump the gap and enjoy these romance books, not all of my YA readers will.

So here’s the story: A few years ago, Amalie and I discovered we both had a love for historical romance novels. Julia Quinn. Eloisa James. Sarah MacLean. Judith McNaught. We loved reading about love and romance, and the trials a hero and heroine had to endure before they could find a happily ever after together.  

Romance novels, especially regency-set romance, were what made us happy as readers. So we decided, why not write one ourselves? Once we got started, we realized it also made us happy as writers. By the time we’d finished with the first draft, we were hooked!
So what’s MY ROGUE, MY RUIN about? Read on…

He stole their riches …The Marquess of Hawksfield is no gentleman. His lineage is impeccable and his title coveted, but Archer Croft is as far from his indulgent peers as he can get. His loathing for the beau monde has driven him to don a secret identity and risk everything in order to steal their riches and distribute them to the less fortunate.
 But she stole his heart …Lady Briannon Findlay is no longer the sickly girl she once was. Defying her mother’s stringent rules, she embraces her encounter with the Masked Marauder, a gentleman thief waylaying carriages from London to Essex. The marauder has stirred Brynn’s craving for adventure, and she discovers an attraction that goes much deeper than the charming thief’s mask.
 And a marauder is unmasked  Brynn is a revelation, matching Archer in intelligence, wit, and fiery passion. Stubborn and sensuous in equal measure, she astonishes him at every turn—astride a horse, in a ballroom, in his arms, and above all, when she uncovers his deepest secret. But when someone sinister impersonates Archer’s secret personality, and a murder is committed, soon Archer begins to think he doesn’t stand a fighting chance without her.

MY ROGUE, MY RUIN is tentatively schedule for an October 2016 release!

We’ve just finished revising the second book, currently titled MY DARLING, MY DISASTER, and we’re so excited. Writing these books has been the most fun I’ve had writing in a very long time.
