My Favourite Books on Writing

•  Busy Writer’s Guide series by Marcy Kennedy – Any of the books in this series is well laid out and succinct with no fluff.  Easy to follow with lots of examples to help writers understand the concepts.  Books in the series include:

Showing and Telling in FictionPoint of View in FictionDialogue,              Deep Point of ViewInternal DialogueGrammar for Fiction WritersStrong Female CharactersDescriptionTwitter for Authors,                  Fiction Genres  and  How to Write Faster.

•  How to Write Dazzling Dialogue by James Scott Bell.  This is possibly the best book I’ve found for learning how to write dialogue.  It sparkles.  It’s a quick, easy read, and beautifully explained.
