I loved this book: member contribution

'The insider's guide to getting your book published' by Rachael Stock
White Ladder Press, 2005
isbn 0954821955

I read about this in Writers' News and I got through my copy in three days. It is also endorsed by Jilly Cooper.

Here's a link to the publisher's page:

Hi all,
I liked the Teach Yourself books "Writing a Novel" by Nigel Watts ISBN 0-340-86762-0;  "Writing for Children" by Allan Frewin Jones & Lesley Pollinger ISBN 0-340-86763-9; "Creative Writing" by Dianne Doubtfire ISBN 0-340-85039-6.
"Writing the Short Story" by Roy Lomax ISBN 0 906486 13 0; "Writing Articles that sell" by G. J. Matson ISBN 0 906486 01 7; "Writing for Cash" by Jon Atkinson and Beryl Sandwell ISBN   906486 00 9.
"Solutions for Writers" Practical Craft Techniques for Fiction and Non-Fiction by Sol Stein ISBN 0-285-63444-5.
I have lots more on my bookshelves if you need them.
I have a copy of that Stephen King one - it is brilliant.

there are many books, resources, and articles at - the official industry organization covering USA pub industry.

there are penty of .pdf resources, statistics,and general links there.  i think this would be most useful if you are in business, or perhaps starting a small press in the usa. 

if you know of a similar site/resource for the pub industry in the uk, please post.
