  1. Awww Emily, I loved this!!! So much helpful information. And you are so funny! (Blooper reels are always my favorite part.) :) I can only imagine how weird it is to talk to a camera.

    Sandwiches are awesome. :)

  3. Awesome video!
    I loved the part about research...it is so easy to get carried away, especially since I get a lot of what you talked about (wanting to get everything absolutely historically correct). I just have to remember that people are people no matter what point in history it is, and I should research around that. Yay for sandwiches too, keeping the story rightfully front and center!
    And when you talked about the mountain of books, how you said "I know, because I've been there..." was the voice of experience personified ;)
    I can only imagine how hard it must be to vlog, but you do a great job! And it's definitely inspirational & encouraging to me. (And awesome bloopers too :))

  6. Lol! I loved watching your vlog video! I am researching the 1600s for my novel right now, and it can be a bit daunting. =) But because I enjoy history, it's been fun as well. =) Thanks for the informative video!! Your books look amazing!
