Hey y'all, it's been awhile (like 5 years since I started writing Underdogs, which is unreal).
I've been writing for a long time, at least in terms of my lifespan, and have been posting online for almost as long. And I'm going to blunt – I've spent a long ass time writing entirely for free. It's been a really valuable experience and your feedback is worth more than anything (and I genuinely mean that) but I've been officially offered the chance to actually write for money which is a big deal for me.
Underdogs will still be here to stay – plot inconsistencies and all (just kidding lmfao) – but it'll also be on Inkitt, where every time you read you can help me make some much-needed cash.
If you're down to help a girl out, follow the link below and/or in the external link (it's the same thing) and it'll take you to my profile, where Underdogs is ready for you to read.
Thank you for everything you've done for me – I'm still in awe every time I think about the fact that this book literally has 16.5 million reads, a Watty Award and two successful spin-offs (shoutout to any Sucker and Potholes fans). I can't express how much I appreciate your patience, feedback, loving responses and even your comments about how much you the hate the Slayton school administration (fight the power!). I owe you all more than I could ever say.

Side note about editing:
I know originally I had said I would be editing this book, but I've decided to just let it be. I've reverted all Underdogs 2.0 chapters back into their old form for the sake of everyone's sanity and most likely will not resume making changes to Underdogs. I started writing this as a sophomore in high school and I am now going into my junior year of college, so as you can imagine my tastes have changed significantly.
Sorry to leave you all with the manuscript I wrote between the ages of 15 and 17. It is generally unedited and occasionally has some loose ends/rough patches/horrible miss-types ("Levi was talking to his couch") but I was tremendously proud of this in high school, so I hope the passion still shows.
Also – for the love of all that is holy, please keep in mind that this is not my current writing style.
