My Reference Library


Whatever genre of writing we do, we all need to develop our own reference library. Some of the books in my library are necessities, some are there because they came under my radar. Here are a few of the books that I currently will not part with:

  • The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th Edition
  • The Elements of Editing - A Modern Guide For Editors & Journalists, by Arthur Plotnik
  • Elements of Fiction Writing - Beginnings, Middles, & Ends, by Nancy Kress
  • Elements of Fiction Writing - Characters & Viewpoint, by Orson Scott Card
  • Elements of Fiction Writing - Plot, by Ansen Dibell
  • Elements of Fiction Writing - Scene & Structure, by Jack M. Bickham
  • The Frugal Editor, by Carolyn Howard-Johnson
  • Guide To Fiction Writing, by Phyllis A. Whitney
  • Harper Dictionary of Contemporary Usage
  • Manuscript Makeover, by Elizabeth Lyon
  • Merriam Webster's Manual For Writer's & Editors
  • On Writing Well, William Zinsser
  • Oxford Large Print Dictionary, Thesaurus & Wordpower Guide
  • The Plot Clock, by Joyce Sweeney, Jamie Morris, and Tia Levings
