Here are some of the books on writing that Tricia recommends...

. Writers Market Guide:

. Sandra Glahn's amazing tutorial about great writing:

. Sandra Glahn's information about magazine writing:

. Sandra Glahn's How to Break Into Publishing:

. On Writing by Stephen King. A bit raw, but one of the BEST books on
fiction writing I've ever read.

. Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott. Again, a bit raw, but very, very good
advice. Anne writes crazily (if there is such a thing) but it works. She's
got a terrific voice.

. Randy Ingermanson's Advanced Fiction Writing Ezine:

Also, Donald Maass' Writing the Breakout Novel.
