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

Vlog 5/20/09 — First Copies Of My Book Have Arrived

As you can see, the Advance Reader Copies (ARCs) of my book have finally arrived! Here’s video of me opening the box from my publishers and going a bit nutty when I hold my book for the first time (almost like a parent with their new child 😀 ). Some awesome photos of the first copies are at my site.

  4. WOw!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Omg, i'm getting excited for you!!!

    I would be the same if my book ever gets published, i will totally buy your book and read it! Congratulations so much for achieving that, it's like a dream of mine too.



  5. Ahhhh!!! =] CONGRATS!!!!!

    I can only imagine how happy you are right now. I'm a young writer too, and I know that once I see my books on the shelf, I'm going to burst into tears.

    By the way, we have a writing/publishing group at my school, and we have a few names everyone should be looking out for. =] They are all amazing people that will make awesome authors like you someday! You are an inspiration to so many people, including me.

  6. Congratulations Kaleb!!!!!!!! I myself am soo excited for you so I couldn't imagine how you are feeling!! I will be buying the book in Sept. and I cannot wait!!

    Way to go!!


  7. AHHHHH!! I'm SO excited for you! It's actually in a book! With pages! And a cover! Right there!

    I don't blame you for stuttering. 😀 Congratulations!!!

  8. Congratulations!!!!! I'm so happy for you!!!!!!

    I have to admit, latly I have been more exited for hearing about your book then the chapters of Breaking Dawn.

    Is it silly that I haven't pre-ordered the book becouse I want to go to the book store to buy it??? I just love going to books stores to get books…

  9. I'm so happy for you Kaleb, congratulations! I can't even begin to imagine what this feels like for you. I downloaded your preview chapters a few weeks ago and I have to say, they're pretty awesome and I can't wait to read your book! I already have money set aside from my limited college student budget so that I can go and buy it when it comes out. 🙂

  10. Lol you're so cute when you go all crazy and freak out. But I would be spazzing out too! Congrats on your “baby”!

  11. I love the way the book looks! Congrats! I can't even begin to imagine what it must have felt like to open that box and see your book(s) inside 🙂

  12. WTG Kaleb!! I would be freaking out if I had written a book and was getting to hold it for the first time!! Congratulations on your Baby!! Can't wait to read it!

  13. How exciting, Kaleb..=)..I am very happy for you. It took you a while to get where you are..You deserve the reward..xD

  14. That is so cool! I can't imagine what it would be like to have a book published (even if I do secretly hope for it one day, despite being much more prone to writing fanfiction than original stories). Feel free to go insane with joy.

    I have asked this many, many times, and I don't plan on giving up. When is it coming out in Australia?

  15. WOOOOOO!!!!! i can't wait for the REAL books that WE can read, to come out!!!! congrats on getting your babies! you deserve it!

  16. Congratulations! Wish it was 9/9/9 already and that I was holding your book and reading it. Have a great summer vacation!

  17. Congratulations on your book! I have to admit, it almost brought tears to my eyes when I watched your video and could see how exciting this is and how amazing that you are now holding your book in your hand. Can't wait to read it!

  18. Not only do I love you, as a Twi-Guy and hysterical blogger/vlogger, I read you were homeschooled. I am homeschooling my children and I would pre-order this book just to support you because of that. But on top of it all, it is just the kind of book my son and I like to read. I am so happy for you. Good luck on sales.

  19. Wicked! So happy for you!

    Would the book be coming out around the same time in the UK? I be happy to order it, but still…
    I can't wait to read it and congratulations, it is a huge accomplishment.
