I'll have a Wish I Knew Wednesday next week. Hmmm, I'm glad Tess is doing one. Go check it out. It's a good one today. Tess Hilmo
Today I wanted to talk about first-time author Kaleb Nation, author of the just released MG novel, Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse. This book is the first in a series that Kaleb is writing. This guy is amazing success story. He's on a live tour, touring schools and signing his book at bookstores across the nation. Between 35-40 people show up at the bookstores and three hundred kids at every school.
He wrote the book when he was FOURTEEN. Got an agent and was published by the time he was TWENTY. YIKES!!!!
He started his own radio show from his bedroom. He would record the show on his computer and he would have a microphone hanging in the closet, because the closet was more sound-proof. And he'd record the show every week. Then put it online to a password-protected website. And all these radio stations would sign up and download it. He had twenty-five stations all over the country including international and satellite, FM, AM, every type of radio would play his show on their stations. At this time he was writing his book.
This kid is amazing and knows the importance of marketing on the internet. I'll give you a link to his blog and you can go and read about Kaleb. I have learned some things from him. Sheesh. Anyway, please read about how the blog TwilightGuy.com got started. This guy is truly amazing. Here's the link:Kalebnation Happy writing. (^_^)
