A guy reads Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (2009-2011)

Books and BlogTV

Under normal circumstances, I wouldn’t devote an entire post to my book on my Twilight blog. However, today is a very big day for me, and I’m so excited about this I have to show it to everyone:


Yes, that is my name on the cover, because this is the art for my debut novel, BRAN HAMBRIC: THE FARFIELD CURSE, due in stores on 9-9-09 (which is important, since I started writing the book on 3-3-03!). The biggest dream I’ve had is to get my own book published: and now, six years after writing the first word, things are finally happening! Here is a video trailer I made, and you can find out more at BranHambric.com if you’re interested:

I will be doing a LIVE BlogTV show THIS EVENING on my channel

to talk about the cover, the past year of twilightguy.com, and all sorts of other cool stuff. I don’t exactly know the time I’ll start yet, but I’ll post it on my Twitter as soon as I do (my Twitter posts up there at the top of this page too, next to my photo).

  1. Congrats!
    I do hope to read your book sometime:) But unforunatly I will have to wait even longer than 9/9-09, most likely. Living on the other side og the Atlantic does have it's disadvantages sometimes…*sigh*
    Good luck!

  2. Wow. That is so cool. I love the cover. Any idea of when it's due out in Australia? I'm definitely buying it.

  3. Bloody brilliant! The cover rocks and the release date…even better. Can't wait. Congrats, Kaleb!

  4. My biggest congratulations and I hope your book will be as successful as the Twilight series (okay that is actually far fetched but I still hope you can convince as much people as possible). It must be an incredible feeling to have your own book released, Furthermore I think you have the biggest, free and unintentional advertisement ever simply because of this homepage. You are already somehow a famous person in the Twilight fandom so I'm convinced many will support. Have fun continuing Breaking Dawn (my least favorite book…) before your own time with your own book comes 😉 (gosh, I sound so cheesy…).

  5. hey Kaleb!

    The cover art looks great! cant wait to read it!

    I was wondering, is the release date going to be the same around the world?
    I live in Scotland and most films, books etc come out on a different date in the UK. Any idea when i'll be able to buy it here or is it still going to be 9/9/09?


  6. Wow, great release date- don't let them change it. To be so young and to be on the brink of being a published author, how inspiring! Thanks for sharing your journey with us. I have no doubt that your book will sell like crazy!

  7. OMG!!! 9-9-09?? That's my twelfth birthday!! Maybe I can get your book on the first day as a birthday present. lol that is so weird. and awesome. its like you are giving me a present even though you dont know me. hahaha

  8. Kaleb, I think I've only commented once before, but I wanted to give you a huge, huge congratulations on your book. I'm absolutely thrilled for you. What an amazing dream come true.

  9. Congrats'!
    i want to read it 😮 .
    but i don't think it's going to come to Belgium to ? I have no idea really :o.

  10. I've already commented on your Kalebnation.com post but….CONGRATS!!!

    I agree with Dye793, being up at 2am is not good for you, kaleb… haha, not that you could sleep, probably too excited to see the reactions 😀

  12. Kaleb, that's absolutely brilliant! I can't wait to read it. Why do we have to wait until September?!

  13. Wow, that's amazing, Kaleb. Again, I LOVE the music, beautiful as well as haunting, and if that's any indication for the book, then it makes waiting even harder! So great that you got the 9-9-09 and that it wasn't an “unlucky day in publishing” as you had feared 🙂
