KALEB NATION is an author, producer, TV personality, and entrepreneur whose writing and projects have been viewed over 50,000,000 times internationally.
Kaleb has worked as a graphic designer, a photographer, a blogger, a nationally syndicated radio host, and a Texas goat herder, among others. He was called “Adorable” by Ke$ha, “Popular” by MTV, “Sexy” by Glozell, and “Male” by Entertainment Weekly. Kaleb has been seen in short films and music videos over 100 million times. In 2014, he appeared in a national TV commercial for Taco Bell.
When Kaleb was twelve, he telephoned the editor of a major publisher to pitch a book idea, but was sent to talk to security instead. Unhindered by rejection, Kaleb began writing his debut novel The Farfield Curse in 2003, which was published in multiple countries in 2009. The sequel, The Specter Key, was published on 10/10/10 in the US, UK and Canada. One of his publishers is the same company that had rejected his call years before.
Kaleb is also the author of 2013’s Harken, the first in a supernatural thriller series for young adults. 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.
Kaleb’s career in media also began when he was a teenager. 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 Internet media. He 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 a feature in Entertainment Weekly and on MTV. Kaleb was granted red carpet access at The Twilight Saga film premieres to interview the cast and bestselling author Stephenie Meyer, who says TwilightGuy.com “…made me laugh buckets.”
As a hub for his online followers, Kaleb began producing video blogs at YouTube.com/KalebNation. His various channels have a total of over 100,000 subscribers. In 2012, Kaleb partnered with media leader PMC to produce The 60SR Show, which received over 12,000,000 views.
In 2013, Kaleb launched Kaleb Media: a creative agency focussing on viral content production and social media marketing. The following year, Kaleb collaborated with Malaysia-based studio Smobble to produce Million Hits Secret, a social media marketing system for entrepreneurs and small business owners. Kaleb continues to consult as an online marketing strategist for many companies worldwide.
In his free time, Kaleb enjoys photography and posting updates to Twitter.com/KalebNation. He lives in California with a chinchilla named Chilla and a puppy named Selfie. Kaleb Nation is his real name.
