NKY Teen Author to Sign Copies of New Book in Covington

Northern Kentucky native and teen author Lauren Hudson,will sign copies of her novels at Roebling Point Books and Coffee on Saturday, June 30 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. 
 
Hudson’s new fantasy fiction novel The Deception has received several awards since its release earlier this month, including Best Young Adult Fiction Book at the New York Book Festival, Best Young Adult Book at the San Francisco Book Festival, and Runner-Up at the Paris Book Festival. Most recently, The Deception was named the 2018 “Summer’s Hottest Read,” winning Grand Prize at the Beach Book Festival in New York. 
 
The Deception is the second in a paranormal trilogy, tracking the adventures of teens who become guardian angels in training.
 
“Once again, Northern Kentucky rallied around the book launch," Hudson said. "As a young author, you can’t succeed without lots of help. The outpouring of interest and support has been wonderful. I can’t imagine there’s any better place than Northern Kentucky to call home.”     
 
Following Hudson’s appearance at Roebling Point, she will be traveling to New York to appear in studio on Fox Business News with Stuart Varney, where she will talk about her rise as a teen author and give advice to teens with business dreams. 
 
Recently, Hudson addressed Northern Kentucky Chamber leaders from the podium at its quarterly Board of Advisors meeting, and signed books for Regional Youth Leadership. 
 
Hudson will also be presenting at the Covington Rotary Club meeting on July 24, her last scheduled local appearance before temporarily leaving the region to attend college at the University of Kentucky, where she plans to study neuroscience.
 
Reobling Point Books and Coffee is located at 306 Greenup St, Covington.
