|It's hard not to love Herbach. |
Why fight it?
first comes love
Oh, um, hey there.
Don't mind me. I was just, um. . . *coughs*
You're in the right place. It's Friday, and this is Friday Feedback.
<----- And, that is me with Geoff Herbach. If you haven't heard of him, you should.
You can't have him, sorry.
But you can read him.
|omg, omg, omg, you must read this!|
I AM STUPID FAST.
My name is Felton Reinstein, which is not a fast name. But last November, my voice finally dropped and I grew all this hair and then I got stupid fast. Fast like a donkey. Zing!
Now they want me, the guy they used to call Squirrel Nut, to try out for the football team. With the jocks. But will that fix my mom? Make my brother stop dressing like a pirate? Most important, will it get me girls-especially Aleah?
So I train. And I run. And I sneak off to Aleah's house in the night. But deep down I know I can't run forever. And I wonder what will happen when I finally have to stop."
|is not allowed to buy this till she finishes other books ahead of it on TBR |
because she will bump EVERYTHING to read it
I miss you. Because there's some serious donkey crap going on right now. I'm supposed to be at football camp, but noooo ... Andrew had to go missing! So because of my stupid little brother, I'll probably lose my chance at a scholarship and end up being nothing special.
I'm pretty sure Andrew ran away to Florida, and now Gus and I have to drive cross-country to get him. Did you know Gus used to think
Miss Piggy was hot? Anyway, Andrew once told me I needed to get my head out of my butt. So that's what I'm trying to do. How about a kiss for luck?
|Sorry ladies, Geoff can only have eyes for me.|
And, not just because he got me to my uber-awesome agent, Jim McCarthy, who just sold my next book to Algonquin for me. . .
But, also, because he can break dance. . .
And because he has made a series of some of the most awesome writing craft vids around (you're welcome for pointing those out to you);
And, okay, because he has written some of the most unique, laugh-out-loud, yet heartbreaking, characters there are.
So, that's the truth. I admit it. I love Herbach. And it's a gushy, mushy love.
I am not ashamed.
And I know you will love him, too.
So, without further (ridiculous) ado, for this Friday Feedback, I give you Geoff, and an excerpt from his still untitled Work In Progress, the third in the "Stupid Fast" franchise (due on shelves May, 2013!).
