Hoping everyone is having a fun summer! I’m in the midst of the first draft of my Mélanie/Suzanne and Charles/Malcolm at Waterloo book, which involves likes of time consulting research sources. This seemed a good time to post a video clip about my research for Vienna Waltz?

Any questions about the research process? Writers, do you get lost in historical research? What are the particular challenges you’ve found? What are some of your favorite sources?

Speaking of research, there’s a lot of detail about the reaction in Vienna to Napoleon’s escape from Elba in this week’s Fraser Correspondence letter from Mélanie to Raoul.
