Talking Blood Rose Rebellion with Rosalyn Eves!

We were so tremendously honored to get to moderate Rosalyn’s Salt Lake City tour stop at The King’s English Bookshop for her beautiful debut novel Blood Rose Rebellion! If you haven’t gotten a chance to read this breathtaking new YA historical fantasy, we both highly recommend it. Check out my full review here!




I always love to hear where authors get their inspiration for their stories. Here Rosalyn discusses how Blood Rose Rebellion was inspired by her fascination with 19th century history and chosen one stories.


If you haven’t gotten a chance to read Blood Rose Rebellion yet, it includes some really gorgeous, and sometimes creepy, elements from traditional Hungarian folklore. Here Rosalyn discusses some of those elements that are included in the book and a few extra tidbits she learned while living in Hungary.

​This 
Rosalyn drew a great crowd of local readers and authors, and it was so great to have so many of our YA and Wine book club members in attendance. How awesome is this book  squad?!



Book two in the Blood Rose Rebellion series will be out next year, and we can’t wait to see what Rosalyn has in store for us next! Also, how GORGEOUS is Rosalyn’s signature?! It even matches the time period of the book!


Have you gotten to read Blood Rose Rebellion yet? What did you think of it? Did you enjoy the Hungarian Folklore woven throughout the story? Who are some of your favorite authors you’ve gotten to meet?

      1. I already retweeted it! I’m hoping to win!!! And that’s awesome! If I lived in Nashville, I would live near Parnassus! They do a lot of great things there! Maybe Victoria Schwab (a Nashville native) would drop by when I come! 😊

      2. Awesome! Well best of luck to you then. 😀 Parnassus is another great book store. I think they are one of the five nominated by Publisher’s Weekly for best book store of the year. Our King’s English was another. 😀 I have met Schwab once. Hoping she comes back again this summer!
