Weakest of the Three

Of all three volumes, Lazar offers precious little actual writing advice here. He does, however, go on and on and on about how he was able to stretch himself and write a steamy romance scene and he reads ALL of it. No, really. ALL of it. I kept fast forwarding it, and it went on and on, with the narrator sounding absolutely delighted. And that was it for the audiobook; nothing else offered that could actually be tucked away into a writer's toolbox for future, or immediate use.
