THIS YEAR YOU WRITE YOUR NOVEL gives fairly rudimentary advice, but for the first-time novelist, rudimentary is what you need to start. However, for the more advanced, I'd recommend either more genre-specific literature or, for general information, I'd recommend those penned by greats, like Stephen King's "On Writing" (which is partially a memoir and partially a guide to writing). For the basic conception of a novel and some ideas on how to revise, this book is decent but not marvellous.
