Cover Reveal & Black Friday Book Deals

Here’s some bookish news I’m so thankful for and excited to share with you! Together with my publisher Write Integrity Press, I’m proud to present the official cover for The Reactionary, the final book in The Rogues trilogy, scheduled to release February 19, 2019. Click here to learn more about this thrilling conclusion to Portia’s story.

Rock star graphic artist Kelli Sorg has faithfully worked with me on all three covers for this series, and I’m so happy with the how they turned out! The minimalism, symbolism, and striking colors were exactly what I had in mind. I hope you love them as much (or nearly as much) as I do!

I don’t know about you, but the type of sale that doesn’t involve me dealing with crazy crowds but making purchases from my cozy home is essentially perfection. Did you know you can also gift Kindle books? Simply select the book and choose the “Buy for others” option.

Come Adventure with Me! Italy in Real Life and Fiction

Starting next week, I’m traveling to Italy with my friend and colleague. Among other mouth-watering destinations, we’ll be exploring some of the settings for the final book in The Rogues trilogy, which include Orvieto and the Port of Civitavecchia. I can’t wait to share these places in real life with you and then take you into my heroine’s fictional story where she experiences them in her dystopian world.

Can you believe we’ve been on this trilogy adventure together since 2016 when I first signed my contract with Write Integrity Press? The cover reveal for The Reactionary will be coming soon, but for now, you can preview Portia’s climactic adventure.

Maybe you haven’t dived into Portia’s story yet. No worries. You have a few months before book three releases to catch up on the action. And this month, if you read and share your review about The Revisionary or The Revolutionary on Amazon and tag me in a social media post about it, I’ll enter you into my summer book challenge giveaway. (Maybe I’m in denial, but I’m not counting summer as over until the end of this month.) Bonus points if you review both or participate in the original summer book challenge.

Oh, what’s the giveaway? So glad you asked. It’s an autographed paperback copy of The Reactionary once it releases next year. (A winner outside the U.S. will receive a Kindle copy.)

Wherever We Go

As I’m hustling through all the last-minute trip preparation, I need to pause and remember: This trip isn’t about me. Yes, it’s a huge blessing and opportunity that has me antsy with anticipation. But at the end of the day, whatever I do and wherever I go, I want to shine God’s love and light.

No, this isn’t a mission trip by any means, but are we not always to represent Christ? Who knows whose paths I’m going to cross. My hope is that I’ll represent Christ well even if I’m tired, anxious, or inconvenienced.

Bottom Line: I’d appreciate your prayers during this trip and would love for you to share in this European adventure with me. I’ll be updating my Instagram stories @kristenhogrefeauthor and on Facebook, and you’re invited to follow me there.

Happy reading, safe travels, and adventure on!

Summer Book Challenge

Like most children, I looked forward to summer as a girl. One of the many reasons why was that I could choose any book at the library to read, earn points toward the Book-It program, and get free pizza. Free pizza for reading books? Yes, please!

Today, I still adore pizza and books. Though I can’t afford to feed your pizza cravings, I can give away a copy of my next release! Here’s how you can enter for a chance to win.

Snap a picture of any of my books during your summer travels, which can include something as simple as a poolside retreat or as adventuresome as Italy, where my friend and colleague recently traveled. Kindle or paperback copy works fine.

My friend Maria read The Revolutionary during her recent trip to Italy.
Stay-cation? Books make perfect poolside companions.

Then, share your picture on social media and tag me on any of these sites:

I’ll add your name to a drawing for a free copy of my next book, The Reactionary.* This final book in The Rogues trilogy is set to release in the first quarter of 2019.

Enjoy your summer! I’ll look forward to seeing your pictures and traveling adventures.
