I posted a similar question months ago, and someone referred me to a book by
JoAnn Hackos, called "Managing Your Documentation Projects." It's part of the
Wiley Technical Communication Library series. The book covers every phase of
a publication project.

ISBN 0-471-59099-1
Cost is $39.95 U.S.

You also might want to search the TECHWR-L archives - this subject has been
discussed thoroughly, as have most others! :-)
