When I was coming up, I used Bill Bachman's book, Quad Logic. It's a great learning tool. Bachman is an incredible player, and he's really good at breaking everything down to a level where it's easy to learn. I'd definitely recommend starting there or trying to find some of his videos on youtube. If you search back through this forum, you'll probably find some good advice from past posts on this topic as well.
If you're looking for more specific advice, what exactly is giving you the most trouble? Is it just the difficulty of moving a lick around the drums? Or are you just still adjusting to playing on a drum at all after so much time on mallets?
