If you're looking for a good book on how to write a novel, read 'Writing Without Rules: How To Write & Sell a Novel Without Guidelines, Experts, or (Occasionally) Pants' by Jeff Somers. The book is very straightforward on its information while at the same time offers a great sense of humor. I ordered the book on Amazon, Writing Without Rules, and am very happy I did.
