Sizzling Style is what distinguishes a spellbinding book from an ordinary one. The writer who understands the fundamentals of fictional writing style knows how to capture readers and never let them go. Too often aspiring writers are frustrated by rejection, not realizing that the problem is not the story but the way they are telling it. In this audiobook, best-selling author William Bernhardt brings his down-to-earth approach to the subject of style, revealing everything you need to know to write with the art and craft of a seasoned professional. Bernhardt goes beyond memorizing rules to a fresh approach, a philosophy of writing that will transform your work and take it to a higher level. Because as William Goldman famously said, "No one really knows what will be commercial, but everyone knows good writing from bad writing." The audiobook also includes exercises designed to help writers apply this approach to their own writing.

I hate this guy. He's an illusions smasher/master
Bernhardt's spellbinding voice enlivens his masterful lessons for writers, and makes up for the sins of Language arts teachers every where.
I said I hate this guy. Because, each new Red Sneaker Series book that I read smashes the illusions I have as a writer, but it hones my writing. I have spent the past year reading How to books on novel writing only to pick up some bad habits, and cluttered confusion on the craft. Bernhardt's natural teaching style instructs, and empowers the developing writer's unique individual talent.
I have been able to understand the landscape of creative writing and many tools of the craft, the where in the geography, more important, when to employ the useful information I've gotten from the RSS other writers.
When I realized that clarity is more important than fad, and sadly, that quick read sells faster than the verbose rookie stuff I currently write. Bernhardt's mentorship is priceless.
Now and again in history a cluster of genius appears, France's Impressionist, The Bauhaus and Italy's Renaissance. There is a cluster forming of writers in of all places Oklahoma. I wondered; What are they feeding these up and coming, and established writers. Well, I think they are learning craft from William Bernhardt.
