1024 118 Kaleb Nation

The preview chapters of HARKEN are finally up! You can now read the first 3 chapters of my next book for free at ReadHarken.com.

It’s really exciting to share the preview with all of you. HARKEN is a project I’ve been working on for almost 3 years now, and to finally reveal some of it means we’re that much closer to 1/13/13. Less than a month until you can read it!


While you’re waiting, how about a contest? I’ll be receiving a ton of HARKEN merch soon and I want to give it to you! I’d show you a photo but the mail is moving slowly around the holidays and the packages haven’t arrived, but imagine: a gigantic poster, a glow-in-the-dark wristband, a ring from the book, a postcard, and anything else I can stuff in.

It’s easy to enter! All you have to do is download the free preview of HARKEN, then post your favorite quotes or parts of the book to Twitter with the #HARKEN so I see it. Or leave a comment on my new video to be entered too.

Let me know what you think of the preview. 1/13/13 will be here in less than a month!

HARKEN Cover Art Is Finally Here!

The cover for HARKEN is finally here!

I’m so excited about it. It’s exactly the type of cover I wanted for this book: mysterious, iconic, not begging for attention but catching eyes all on its own. When you read HARKEN, you’ll understand just how well this cover fits.

I think fans who’ve been following along these past two years will be ESPECIALLY happy over the design, since a LOT of you have been parodying it without even knowing!

There are plenty of clues to the story in the cover art and I’m sure you’ll be digging around between now and January 13, when you can finally read it. Very soon, you’ll be able to enjoy the first 3 chapters in a free preview, sent to everyone who signs up at ReadHarken.com.

If you want your hands or eyes used in my videos, be sure to send your HARKEN photos in! Just take a photo and post it to Twitter with the hashtag #HARKEN. I usually RT it and some even go on the website and in my videos!

I can’t wait to share HARKEN with you! Get ready, it’ll be here soon.

Get Ready For The #SecretKalebBook Title!

150 150 Kaleb Nation

I attended the red carpet of the Breaking Dawn movie premiere last night! It was such an awesome close to the Saga that has been a big part of my life for the past four years, ever since I wrote that first post on TwilightGuy.com. When I started blogging about the series four years ago, I never would have imagined I’d end up at the premiere, get to interview the stars, and even get a mention in the New York Times!


New York Times advertisement today… New York Times Bestseller List tomorrow? Speaking of books, there was even some buzz for the #SecretKalebBook on the red carpet! Watch what happened:

Word about the #SecretKalebBook is spreading! Thanks to everyone who sent in hand photos — I try to fit as many as I can into the ending of my new videos. Keep sending them to me on Twitter!

In less than two weeks, the real title of the #SecretKalebBook will be revealed. Make sure you are subscribed to Youtube.com/KalebNation for the special video! I’ll be telling more about the book than I’ve ever said before. If you put your info in at SecretKalebBook.com, you’ll be the first to know! I can’t wait to share it with you.

Don’t Trust Anyone: The #SecretKalebBook

150 150 Kaleb Nation

And finally… I can speak!

For more than two years, I’ve had to keep quiet about my next novel, code-titled “the #SecretKalebBook“. If you’ve been around here a while, you probably know that

A) I’m terrible at keeping secrets and

B) I like doing lists of things in A) and B) even when they don’t need to be (example: see the video above, and right now).

Everything has been quietly coming together. I write stories and then desperately want to share them with you, but have to wait until they’re shiny and clean and for the best moment to release them into the world. This idea has been simmering in its own story-seasoning ever since an evening of May 29, 2010, when I blindly tweeted this…


… and then all the way until I tweeted this:


Two years is a long wait. However, gears have been turning behind-the-scenes and very soon all will be revealed for the #SecretKalebBook. That includes the title, which contrary to popular belief is not #SecretKalebBook, Callista, or Don’t Trust Anyone. I can’t say it yet, but soon. I can reveal one thing about the book, which was cleverly reported by PageToPremiere.com:


Meanwhile I think it’s time for something fresh and special to thank you for all the time you’ve waited and your dedication to my writing so far. There is a new website at www.SecretKalebBook.com. There’s not much on it yet for a reason. But if you’re one of the first 2,000 people who enters, your name will be in the acknowledgements of my next book (watch the video above for details).

It’s the best way I can thank all of you for your dedication and patience for this book. I can’t wait to share it with you.

How I Became A Billionaire (With My Billionaire Hogwarts Letter)

150 150 Kaleb Nation

It’s been three months since I posted a video update on my life! So much has happened over the past quarter-of-a-year that it’s impossible to fit it all into one vlog. It’s been very exciting and it’s all about to become even more of an adventure. I can’t wait to share all the big things that are happening in secret behind-the-scenes!

Meanwhile, if you want many-times-a-day updates on my life, you should follow me at Twitter.com/KalebNation. I post there a LOT more than I post here. And for more of my videos be sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel.

And for those who couldn’t catch all of the Instagram photo montage (my Instagram is kalebnation, by the way) here are all the photos from the video… and a few extras.

See Me In The “Come With Us” Music Video By Lindsey Stirling!

150 150 Kaleb Nation

Just before Vidcon 2012 began, my friend DevinSuperTramp asked if I’d be in a new music video from Lindsey Stirling. Lindsey, for those unfamiliar with her amazing music, is a violinist and composer who was featured as a finalist on the 5th season of America’s Got Talent!

We had such a fun time shooting the video and I got to meet a lot of new Youtubers while I was there. I’ve always refused to dance on camera before… but I made an exception this one time. Hope you enjoy my robot-like moves (and my plaid)!


The 60SR And PMC: Fandom News Gets Its Show

600 600 Kaleb Nation

I’m so excited to announce some news that I’ve had to keep secret for far too long. To summarize: I’ve signed a deal that partners my 60SR show with the major media company PMC, and I’ll now be producing the show full time.

The 60SR has been my project for almost two years now. The show is 60 Seconds of Recaps, Reviews and Rants about the latest in fandom news. It’s been my most successful series to date: partially because it covers exactly what fans want most, and partially because I absolutely love producing them. Since 2008, covering fandom news has kinda been my thing.

You might not have heard the name PMC before but I’m 99% sure you’ve come across something they’ve created. PMC is a world leader in digital media with a portfolio of properties like TVline, Nikki Finke’s Deadline, Hollywood Life, Movieline, and many others, as well as major events like the Young Hollywood Awards, The Style Awards, and the Breakthrough Of The Year Awards. Their websites are seen by millions worldwide and their videos air daily on ION TV.

They recently ventured into YouTube with their YouTube Original’s channel ENTV. When I met with PMC, we were discussing ideas about a show for dedicated fans of things like The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, One Direction, Twilight, Justin Bieber, etc. As we went over ideas, I realized what they were looking for… was exactly what I was already doing on my 60SR show!

So we made an offer to produce my show under their company. They said yes!

Everything you like about the 60SR won’t change. I’ll continue to host and produce the show on Youtube.com/60SR. But with the new support of PMC’s team, the 60SR will be able to bring you even more breaking fandom news, more of my crazy commentary, and even more access to the most buzzed-about Hollywood events — with new episodes 5 days a week, Monday – Friday.

I’m so excited about this opportunity and know that you will love the show. I’ll see you on the next episode!

I’m The Guy In The “Princess Charming” Music Video By Megan And Liz

1024 109 Kaleb Nation

A few weeks ago, I went to a filming in Laguna Beach, CA, for a music video shoot with the amazing singing duo Megan And Liz!

It was rainy and extremely dreary all day but that actually turned out to be awesome, since I was playing the part of the somewhat-love-interest having a somewhat-terrible-day. This shoot was loads of fun (when is hanging out with a bunch of Youtubers in Orange County NOT fun??).

And you have no idea how many takes we did to get that garbage bag to tear right. Also they actually had to let the air out of the director’s tires to get that shot, which he was NOT HAPPY ABOUT.

Coincidentally, I just heard Megan and Liz on the radio for the first time this morning: I guess from now on I’ll be known as “the guy in that Princess Charming music video”. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

I’m so excited to announce that my 60SR show is relaunching today on YouTube (new episode above)! I recently signed a management deal with Big Frame, a company made of genius and awesome people who are just as excited about the show as I am. They are working with me to turn this show into something huge!

The 60SR is 60 seconds of Recaps, Reviews and Rants on entertainment, viral and popular world news, hosted by me. Be sure to watch the show every Tuesday and Friday on Youtube.com/60SR!
