The second edition of Kenneth Adams' "A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting" has just been published by the ABA Section on Business Law. It's widely considered the definitive book on the subject. Ken also maintains a blog devoted to the subject for those interested in a more regular diet of his effective drafting morsels.
In addition, DePaul adjunct Legal Writing Professor and Chicago practitioner Bret Rappaport has just published an article in the most recent volume of JALWD entitled "A Shot Across the Bow" about drafting effective demand letters. His article discusses "everything from the psychological aspects of an effective demand to the timing and mode of physically delivering the letter" according to Raymond Ward's blog. Bret's article is available on JALWD's website here.
