Texas Gov. Rick Perry has long criticized the federal government, and now he's writing on the subject in a new book called "FED UP."

Perry's office confirmed and book publisher Little, Brown and Company announced Tuesday that the GOP governor is writing the book. It's due out in the fall, in time for the midterm elections.

The book will further push Perry into the national spotlight. Last year he made national waves by flirting with the subject of secession. He said he can understand why citizens might get so fed up with the federal government that they would consider the idea, though he stopped short of endorsing secession.

Perry insists he doesn't have presidential or vice presidential aspirations. He is running for re-election this year against Democrat Bill White.
