Offline, a subscription to Writer's Digest (http://www.writersdigest.com/index.asp) is always nice. (Anybody have a sub to Locus Mag? I'm interested but can't find a copy in town to trial.)

Do you mean normal fiction writing or writing marketing spiel?

Hi, Brian! Thanks for your reply. I mean, I want to read some books on writing (some tips how to write a good fantasy novel). I'm just curious if I can find them on some web sites. If you know the sites with such links, please, give me the addresses. Thank you.

I don't know of any reputable ones available online. Really, it's worth investing a few pounds into at least one good writing book.
Orson Scott Card's "Character and Viewpoint" has some good info on POV use - however, I'd probably recommend you consider instead buying "How to Write Science Fiction & Fantasy" by him, as it includes the POV usuage, plus deals specifically with far wider issues of sf/f writing. A search on amazon should bring it up quite easily.
If you're planning on buying just one book that's the one I'd recommend for the genre.

And speaking of Orson Scott Card, his website has some good tips and lessons on writing. Have a look-see...
