BRAN HAMBRIC: THE SPECTER KEY Preview Chapter 1

150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

Many years ago, when I finished the first draft of BRAN HAMBRIC: THE FARFIELD CURSE, I launched BranHambric.com and posted the first few chapters as a preview of my novel-in-progress. Now, nearly 10,000 downloads and a real publisher later, those preview chapters (in various degrees of editing) have crawled their way across the internet, and worked as a wonderful introduction for thousands of readers to the world of Bran Hambric. I like the idea of letting readers preview a book before they buy it. If…

Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse Blog Tour

150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

Wowsa, it’s been forever since I’ve updated here! As some of you know, I’ve been really busy with my move to California, and for the past week I’ve been reduced to an iPhone and a tiny netbook to stay connected. My moving truck was three days late, so I’ve been sleeping on the floor of my new apartment — but now, everything is moved in, and I’ll be back to blogging as usual very soon! Driving Through California! Even though there’s just under a week…

Reading Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse [Prologue]

150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

Can’t see it? Click here. During my live BlogTV show yesterday, I read the prologue of my novel Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse to about 300 people. It was great because even though I was reading a book on a video show, I actually gained about 30 viewers by the end! Luckily, I was able to record this part of the show, for anyone who wasn’t able to make it. Hope you enjoy! In this video I am reading from the ARC version of the…

Bran Hambric In The New York Times & WSJ

150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

It isn’t exactly the New York Times bestseller list (yet!), but my publisher’s recent decision to push back the e-book release of Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse has been causing a lot of buzz this week. The Wall Street Journal was the first to report: In an interview, Sourcebooks’ chief executive said it will delay by at least half a year the e-book version of “Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse,” a young-readers title in the vein of Harry Potter that goes on sale Sept. 9.…

New Features And Songs And Stuff

150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

There are some new features to point on on my site, and a bunch of little updates that I’ve been meaning to post, but just didn’t seem to merit an entire blog to themselves! So without further ado: – I added an entirely new Fans page, where I’ll be posting some of the awesome stuff that BranFans are making. Creative people are always sending in photos or pictures they drew, so I’ll be collecting and putting them on that page, along with all their cool…

Bran Hambric To Be Published In Russia

150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

I just received news this morning from my wonderful foreign rights agents that the Russian translation for BRAN HAMBRIC: THE FARFIELD CURSE has been sold to Eksmo, one of the largest publishing houses in Russia. Eksmo is well known for many authors, but especially for being the first Russian publishers of the ARTEMIS FOWL series. Of course, I am wildly thrilled at this news. I hadn’t expected any foreign interest in Bran Hambric until the book was out and selling in the United States. But…

More Great Stuff From BranFans!

Now that I’ve finally slithered out of bed (after recuperating from jetlag thanks to hitting both US coasts in the same week!) I’ve been delightfully surprised to discover a whole wave of great new stuff from the BranFans! It has been a thrill seeing all the wonderful people already involved in the Bran Hambric fandom — with still just under 100 days left before the full book is even out! For starters, check out this song from the wonderfully talented Adrienne Frailey, who wrote it…

My First Book Signing At Book Expo America 2009 [Video]

[VIDEO]

Book Expo America 2009 was a BLAST! It is quite an amazing thing to go into an airplane-hangar-sized conference hall, and be surrounded by others from your own world of writing and publishing. I met countless authors and got a stack of books (including an advance copy of Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, a signed copy of the Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, and loads more).

My book signing for The Farfield Curse started at 11:00 AM, and there was already a short line formed. Once the time hit, people began to come from everywhere, and the signing didn’t really stop! There were so many people, we actually ran out of books, so that by the time the signing was over I simply couldn’t sign any more because there were none left to hand out. Hopefully this is a good sign for how it will do in stores 😀

I was interviewed for Borders Media by the one and only […]
