Here are some of my favourites.

A Cautionary Tale: Author Solutions and Friends: The Inside Story

Sadly self-publishing isn’t without its dangers. “A serious, detailed, cautionary tale for those venturing into self-publishing. Always, always do the research before you spend any money to get your book published.”

Jane Friedman

“I have more than 15 years of experience in the book and magazine publishing industry, with expertise in digital media and the future of authorship … I’ve probably read, reviewed, or at least seen every single advice book, website, and service for writers. I could recommend dozens of resources, but I’ll just focus on the most helpful for new writers.”

Joanna Penn

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, voted one of The Guardian UK Top 100 Creative Professionals 2013. Also voted one of the Top 10 Blogs for Writers and one of the Top 10 Blogs for Self-Publishers.
“I have made so many mistakes, I want to try and save you time, money and heartache along the way and so I share articles, video and audio about writing and creativity, publishing options, book marketing and being a creative entrepreneur.”

Joel Friedlander

Joel’s site is packed with information for the self-publishing newbie. I recommend his free book offer: 10 Things You Need to Know About Self-Publishing. I’ve also used his templates for the interiors of my books. This is why Joel does what he does: “Writers change the world one reader at a time. But you can’t change the world with a book that’s still on your hard drive or in a box under your bed.” I couldn’t agree more!
