SECRETS Every Author Should Know: Publishing Basics by Maggie Lynch
Even includes secrets I didn't know! The book covers a lot of the publishing steps required by any author planning to self-publish one or more books. The book not only has details of most of the steps, it has pictures and examples and copies good and bad covers and of the actual pages you'll face when doing work online to get your book ready for publication and finally published. In particular, there was more detail on formatting and ISBNs and copyright registration than I've seen in other places.
