So the news is out and it’s my turn to make the announcement I’ve been dreaming of for years. I just got word that my debut novel, BRAN HAMBRIC: THE FARFIELD CURSE, is to be published by Sourcebooks Jabberwocky. That picture is from my journal in 2003, when I was 14: the very night I had the idea that would become this book. I had no clue. It is impossible to explain to someone who doesn’t write books how amazing it feels to receive the…

On this night exactly 5 years ago, when the date was 3/3/03, at 9:55 PM, I was in bed staring at the ceiling, and suddenly had an idea: a boy and a banker, sitting on a rooftop, waiting for a burglar to come. Click to see a clearer image:

If you get a tattoo in college, you’re out of the inheritance.

It makes it hard to unpack when your mind tells you it’s a waste of time because you’ll just have to…

Tis the end of 2007, a time which brings about so many new things and ends so many old ones. It is the last week of the year, and also my last week of living at home. Friday is move-in date at the new apartment, so everything is to be packed and in the truck Thursday evening.

Birthday

150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

Thank you all for your wonderful messages on my birthday yesterday. The day went perfectly and my mom’s cheesecake was wonderful. I got calls from my friends and family and my brother Jaden got me a shirt that says ‘Celebrity’ on the front. As usual, my life should follow a pattern, so that since fifteen went very well, and sixteen might have been less-than-desirable, and seventeen went very well, etc, following the pattern 19 should be one of the really good years.
