    Ever wish you could peer into the brain of a published author and learn what tips he's absorbed over the years? How did he get where he is? How many times did he submit manuscripts before he sold his books? Or maybe you'd like to delve into the psychology of writing, and learn what motivates him. How does he balance life with writing? How can regular tweeting help? In Volume 1 of Write Like the Wind, Lazar offers advice on “forbidden words”, “hooking your reader”, and “writing like you talk.”

    Ever wish you could peer into the brain of a published author and learn what tips he's absorbed over the years? How often does he blog? And why? And what about those live chats. Do they really sell books? Maybe you'd like to delve into the psychology of writing, and learn how to deal with rejection or how to write effective love scenes. In volume 2 of Write Like the Wind, Lazar offers advice on writing the "dreaded synopsis", "writing on the road", and recording messages to your readers.
