I am so, so, SO deep in the writing cave at the moment for book two of the Rusk University series, which if you don't already know is titled ALL BROKE DOWN.
See what I did there? Here's a hint... Book three will start with the word All, too. :)
Anyway, I'm in that final hibernation phase of writing a book where I feel a little like this.
But I'm trucking along. I just wanted to pop in and tell you that today was the massive Excerpt release organized by Inkslinger PR and William Morrow Books. Tons of blogs have participated, posted the excerpt, and talked about All Lined Up, including some street team members who have already read the book and *might* share some of their insight. :) I'll be retweeting posts all day on Twitter if you want to go check them out.
But I'm also posting the excerpt here for you guys to read! And just to make things a little interesting, I'm posting a giveaway, too! Stay tuned after the excerpt for giveaway details!
In case you need a refresher on All Lined Up and the Rusk Series...

My life has always been ruled by both.Dallas Cole loathes football. That's what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past.But life doesn't always go as planned.
