When Kaleb Nation was twelve, he telephoned the editor of a major publisher to pitch a book idea… and got to talk with security instead. Unhindered by rejection, he continued to write as a teenager, and on the third night of the third month in 2003, Kaleb had an idea that would become his debut novel, The Farfield Curse. The sequel, The Specter Key, was published on 10/10/10 in the US, UK and Canada. One of his publishers is the same that had rejected him when he was twelve.
At 13, Kaleb hosted his first radio show in Austin, Texas, later launching his own nationally syndicated program in 2006 called The Top 5. Kaleb’s show grew to be broadcast on stations in over 20 states and countries. Few of his affiliates realized he was a teenager recording the shows in his bedroom. In 2008, Kaleb left radio to focus on writing and social media.
Entering the online world, Kaleb launched the blog TwilightGuy.com, posting chapter-by-chapter insights from a guy’s perspective on The Twilight Saga, a series of popular vampire romance novels. The website went on to receive over 7 million hits and was widely featured in the media, including Entertainment Weekly and on MTV. Kaleb was granted red carpet access at the Twilight Saga film premieres to interview the cast and author Stephenie Meyer, who says TwilightGuy.com “…made me laugh buckets.”
As a hub for his online audience, Kaleb launched YouTube.com/KalebNation. His various channels have a total of over 100,000 subscribers and 50 million views. Kaleb’s videos have appeared on MTV, Buzzfeed, The Huffington Post, and more. In 2012, Kaleb partnered with media leader PMC to produce The 60SR Show.
In early 2013, Kaleb released the first novel in his new series, titled Harken. Called “whip-smart, charming, and irresistible…” by New York Times bestselling author Lauren DeStefano, Harken gained immediate viral attention through fan-created songs, artwork, and reader buzz.
In his free time, Kaleb enjoys photography and posting updates to Twitter.com/KalebNation. A black belt in taekwondo, he lives in California with a chinchilla named Chilla.
