The trip to Chicago and Naperville to meet my publishers went wonderfully! So many things happened in 48 hours that I can hardly list them all here. Suffice it to say, from the photos above, that everything went even better than I expected, and this book release is going to be awesome! Here’s the rundown of the trip. I left Dallas around noon, and arrived a few hours later after a flight filled with turbulence and The Dark Knight on my laptop. When I arrived…

150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

Today is the third day of the third month: and exactly six years ago, I had an idea that changed my life. The photos above represent bits and pieces of those six years — from the first idea, to plotting the story, to the various titles, to the deal — and my first early steps in writing. Now, in about six months, the book will finally be out. When I first started on this story, I had no way of foreseeing that it would actually…

The Wall Of Drawings [Music]

NOTE: You can download this song for free. Click the link below the preview! In the beginning of writing The Farfield Curse, I had a particularly hard time connecting with Bran. This, obviously, was not a good predicament, as the main character should usually be the one the author connects with the most. I later realized that the reason for this was because I was suppressing who he really was, in favor of who I wanted him to be. When I came to this conclusion,…

Due to my sites recently passing 2 million hits (thanks everyone!) and the resulting ad revenue, I have finally saved up enough to justify buying a PO Box. The address can be found here. There are a few things to note about this new box. It is for mail from my readers only, and any business correspondence from professionals regarding my books should be sent to my agent. Also, since this box resides outside my immediate homeland, it takes me a bit of time to…

NOTE: For two weeks, you can download this song for free. Click the link below the preview! I always liked making songs that sounded somewhat mysterious, but as it happened most of music I’ve made so far has been slow and happy (besides the Prologue song on all the websites). On Saturday I had some free time, so I sat down with a specific part of The Farfield Curse in mind, and tried to set that part of the book to music — and surprisingly…

Back from the Twilight Premiere

150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

I just got back from the Twilight movie premiere a few days ago, and it was honestly a blast. For the trip, I had to be up around 2 AM in order to catch a flight and arrive on time. I was coming a day early so that I could be a panelist at Twilight Live, which was a podcast they were doing before the premiere. People had been lined up around the block for the event since the night before. Lucky for me, I…
