Awesome catch-all thread!  Definitely book marking so I can send some of my newer authors over when they ask for suggestions.

Thanks for putting this together!  It'll help a lot of people.

Not sure if this was mentioned yet, but there are some great craft books out there. The ones here listed seem to be just the self publishing how to stuff. Those are great, but like Techniques of the Selling Writer and Self Editing for Fiction Writers alone will greatly improve your writing ability. :)

New covers and second book release: Coming soon!

Great resource.

Unfortunately, the OP has been deleted from:

It's interesting to see the 80/20 rule referred to this way. It's usually used to describe the idea that 80% of the benefit comes from 20% of the work. Kinda makes that tip an interesting comment on the value of self-promotion.
