150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

For those of you who do not follow my TwilightGuy blog, I was recently invited to the red carpet at the Twilight movie premiere. If you don’t follow TwilightGuy, then you probably aren’t a Twilight fan, and thus I’ll explain that Twilight is a film based off a book by the same name, by Stephenie Meyer, and is the most-hyped film of this season. If you haven’t heard of it, you must really live in a cave.

The Grave Of Emry Hambric [Music]

150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

I know that most of you have not read The Farfield Curse in its entirety yet (as it’s not out until 2009), and even those who have read parts probably do not know well enough about the characters to actually care who Emry Hambric is. I won’t attempt to explain it because I’d really have to write the whole book out for it to be understood, but hopefully my new song will help you imagine the feeling at the end of the first book: [audio:http://kalebnation.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/bran-hambric-the-farfield-curse-the-grave-of-emry-hambric-end-score.mp3|rightbg=0x5b5ea4]…

Symptoms of Editingosis

150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

Alas, I think I have fallen prey to the dreaded condition of Editingosis. In the Guide to Authorly Conditions, Editingosis is defined as […] temporary affliction which plagues writers, usually in the second half of the year, in which the afflicted suffers from bouts of forgetfulness, untidiness, unkempt appearance and frequent whining […] This is caused by editing taking so much brain power, there is simply not enough left for trivial matters such as Housework, Entertainment, Sunlight or Getting Out Of The Apartment. It isn’t…

Pizza, Revisions and Trolls

150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

There are many very important stages in getting a book published, and one of them is known as Editing. Since this is my first book I’m very new to all of this, and thus parts of it are slightly painful as my body adjusts to 2AM nights, all meals comprised of microwave or delivery foods, sheer lack of outside communication besides instant messenger, and headaches from screen-staring that no amount of Tylenol will drive out. My alarm clock is set to noon, or not at…

Five Things

150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

Starting Monday, I hit the notebooks, staying at the local Pub That Is Not A Pub from morning until near closing time, editing and revising The Farfield Curse. I managed to walk in and get my usual, favorite spot that is one table away from the corner, so that I don’t exactly appear to be a bandit hiding in the shadows and I can still get a glimpse of the….

Contracts, Advances and a Stack of Paper

150 150 Kaleb Nation | Official Website

There is something special in a writer’s first advance check. Many of you probably have an idea what that is: when a publisher makes a deal with an author, they lay down what is called an advance. This is money paid in advance to the author, in the hopes that his or her book will earn it back; following publication, the royalties an author earns off book sales slowly repays it. The original concept of an advance was probably so the author of old, being…
