"Whip-smart, charming, and irresistible. The idea of Michael Asher and his abilities existing in real life makes me smile while simultaneously being afraid to look at anyone ever again." - Lauren DeStefano, New York Times bestselling author of The Chemical Garden trilogy. - I just received the first blurb for HARKEN and it's from none other than super author Lauren DeStefano! I teared up a bit. This means my little secret book won't be secret for much longer! If you haven't, you can read the first 3 chapters of HARKEN at ReadHarken.com. The book will be available on 1/13/13. Be sure[...]
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 rea[...]

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 h[...]
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 b[...]
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[...]
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)!
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 n[...]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MStFOr2BI40 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[...]
