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).

    or more specifically … in australia????!!!!!!

    cover looks awesome..kinda looks a bit like the leven thumps covers :D:D:D:D

    I think your book will be a big hit! My little brother and I can't wait!

  3. That artwork reminds me of the artwork for the Harry Potter books. Lets pray you have the same success!

  4. Yay! I absolutely LOVE the cover. And sorry I couldn't be at BlogTV. I had to babysit *sigh*. I wish I was there, but I had my friends say “hi” for me, so all is okay.

  5. WOW Congrats!! I love the cover!! Just out of curiousity, will there will like another edition of the book in a different cover, because I would love to see that if there were. Just wanted to know.
    Oh and the trailer you made, gave me goosebumps, seriously!! Awesome trailer.

  6. Dear Kaleb,

    You have one up on most authors. You already have a fandom waiting for you, and better still- we're fans who feel like we have an “in” with you. Writers who make themselves seem like normal human beings that we can see and touch. (Okay, living out in Washington state kinda makes the whole “touching” thing unlikely at best.) Because you've made such an effort to be someone we feel like we can know, the response is going to be amazing. People are going to buy your book. And, having done so, they will enjoy it, because many of the aspiring authors reading it will feel like they “know” someone who had a book published.

    The art is fantastic, by the way. I seem to recall you liking the covers for Percy Jackson and the Olympians- this reminds me of the same art. Same color scheme, with light as a focal point, and the same idea of movement. Lovely. XD

  7. Dang it. If only I could quit my job, drop out of college and switch my sleep schedule around to watch those… *sigh*

  8. Hey Kaleb(:
    I can't wait til your book comes out. (The cover art looks great, by the way)
    So, last night on BlogTV, you put the Hannah wig on. I must show you the screenie I took.
    Go to : http://www.twitpic.com/3lfgb to see it!!

  9. Good luck. I hope your book is the next Harry Potter or Twilight, and then all of us who love your posts can say we knew you when. I'll be pre-ordering your book on Amazon. Have you thought about signed bookplates for your current fans? I'm going to want an autographed copy of your book, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Based on your blog, I know your book will be amazing.

  10. Hey, congrats with the cover its awesome.

    does anyone know why You can't atch kaleb's blogtv show when youre a junior member?

  11. Congratulations Kaleb! The cover art is beautiful, but I'm sure that it cannot compare with what is written inside! The trailer and the music are wonderful… so creepily mysterious. The perserverance you had to complete such a project (and while you were still a teen!) is inspiring, and the first few chapters are great. I cannot wait to get a hold of what will surely be a bestseller- even if you didn't have a million girls following this website. So, to KAN and his forthcoming novel that, hopefully, will be as successful and as captivating as the Twilight Saga!

  12. Am I correct in assuming that the release date is the same for us (often overlooked) Candians?

  13. OMG Kaleb! I already commented on the video, but for the record, I'm very excited to watch your dream come true.. You're amazing, and I can't wait to read it…. I just hope it gets to Mexico, wich will happen, cause I know It'll be a best seller, traduced into 17298738274 languages!

  14. I was thinking the same thing! Congrats Kaleb! I am buying my brother a copy as well because I dont think it will be going to South Africa this soon?

  15. Kaleb, I so happy for you! How exciting and awsome, because it is nice to watch someone's dreams come true before my very eyes. I can't wait to read your book. I laugh at your haters, cause it only confirms your doing something right.

    God Bless

  16. I just wanted to say congratulations! I love the cover art! Can't wait to read this one. I'm working on my first novel now as well, and I know that it is a fun, yet daunting task, so kudos to you on getting it finished and published!

  17. Congratulations! This is a huge achievement. I am very proud of you.

    The cover is very eye-catching. I'm sure the contents will match up!

  18. Your book cover looks absolutely beautiful! But I have to say that, even though I know better, Kaleb Nation really seems like a made up name. Guess you will be explaining that to interviewers from now until forever.

  19. yay! i'm really excited for your book, no matter what anyone else says. good job kaleb!

  20. Congrats Kaleb! The cover looks great! And all of us “REAL Twilighters” are very excited for you, lol!

  21. Oh my heck, Kaleb, I can't believe your book is coming out soon!!! I can't wait until September. I will be at a bookstore that very day (what a cool date!!). I am so excited and your video made me even more excited, I love the music!!! You are so lucky! I wish I could get published!! Amen, Britt! Don't worry, Kaleb, us Twiliighters will support you all the way! The book cover is so beautiful and colorful!!!

    I can't wait, Kaleb! Keep writing!! Your name…on a book cover…YAY!!!

  22. WOW that is amazing it looks sooo cool!! ill definately be reading your book Kaleb and not just because the cover is pretty lol =)

  23. Aw, good on ya, T-Guy! The cover looks fantastic and the trailer got me pumped to read the book. Can't wait. You're an inspiration!

  24. I look forward to reading your book when it becomes available. I visited your Bran Hambric website & was impressed with the music you'd composed. Good luck, Kaleb!

  25. Love the cover. It makes the book like exciting. I agree with Stephenie that books should be enjoyed by all and people shouldn't judge solely on age guidelines but what age group is your book suppose to be for.

  26. Wow, Mr. Nation!

    I will call you this now because it just occurred to me that if I ever cite you in a paper, I will have to use Mr. Nation. Its a bit amusing because you are younger than me, so it is a bit odd even if the difference is not big. I believe you have converted me into a fan. I have been very frustrated lately with Children's Literature and Adolescent Literature because of the lack of children and adolescents that write this genre! I am hugely inspired by you at the moment because I almost believed that publishing at such a young age was impossible. Thank you for inspiring me to keep working on my novel. I will work on it in between my busy schedule. I graduated college and am working towards a teaching credential so my life can get hectic with student teaching and my other courses. By the way, as a side note, I would like to share that I am in a Harry Potter Theory Course. I am not sure whether you are a fan, but it is an amazing course. We are using theory as a lens to analyze Harry Potter. Feminism, Psychoanalysis, Structuralism, and Queer Theory are some of the schools of thought we are using. It is AWESOME! Anyway, I can't wait to read your book. I am sure it's going to be a hit!

    Norma (Creepy person who took a picture with you at the Twilight midnight release party)

  27. Congratulations on your new book. It seems to have taken a long time to write, and that you have put in a lot of effort into finishing this book. I know that when it comes out, I'm going to get myself a copy, and im sure lots of other people will be doing the same thing. I hope your book will be a great success. I do hope that you will continue writing books, because you put such great effort into every aspect of your work. Again, a big congratulations to you.

  28. wow! it looks so good, Kaleb! really, the cover art is beautiful! congrats! i am really excited to finally purchase it!

  29. Wow, congratulations, Kaleb! It's really inspiring to see someone who works so hard on their dreams and succeeds. I really like the cover art, but I'm sure that what the book contains is more amazing. Wow, you have a lot of fans for this book already and it hasn't even been released yet! Think of the loads more people who'll jump in your fandom when they finally get to see this book 😀

    Oh, will this book be available in the Philippines, too? And will the release date be the same around the world? I can't wait! XD

  30. Congratulations Kaleb! We are all so proud of you!! Our little Twilight Guy is growing up so fast…

  31. Really Excited! It Comes Out 3 Days Before My Birthday! Woooooo……. So Going To Get It :D:D:D:D

    It Looks Really Good *Crossing Fingers* Hopes Its A Best Seller! Wait……. Is It Coming Out In England 😀 Hopes So 😀

  32. I think the cover art is great by the way – it has a sort of Harry Potter feel to it – yet different.
