"Writing Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks is the one book I would most recommend to inexperienced academic authors in the humanities or social sciences who seriously wish to see their scholarly work in print. Other books may be quicker to read, but I doubt if any would ultimately prove to be as effective." -- Steven E. Gump 20100315 "Thorough, beautifully organized, and humane. This is a welcome light on a dark process." -- Kevin Peterson 20101207 "Belcher's book uses an interactive format to help writers develop a manuscript for submission from a pre-existing text such as a dissertation/thesis... When I used this book to teach writing for publication, doctorial students responded enthusiastically to the format and tone, which bolstered their confidence and enabled them to confront displacement activities." -- Mary Jane Curry "While addressing the sometimes-unsearchable field of scholarly writing and publishing, Wendy Belcher uses unpretentious, contemporary, and even witty prose that is simultaneously captivating and informative." -- Grant Eckstein 20100503

She is also a published nonfiction author, whose memoir about her childhood in Ethiopia and Ghana, Honey from the Lion: An African Journey, won a Washington State Governor's Writers Award and honorable mention in the Martha Albrand/PEN Society Award for first book of nonfiction.

I think this book is a must have for any academic (new or experienced) who needs a bit of guidance on how to get some writing done! Pick it up at your library, test it out, and you might find that you use it so much you need your own copy (like me).
Otherwise, the tips and tricks seem very useful.
