Here's where you'll find several of the resources that I compiled for the books. I hope you enjoy them!
TZK's Project Planner
Here's the Project Planner I use for most of my client projects, as described in Planning and Managing Drupal Projects. It borrows heavily from Happy Cog's project planner, with the addition of some information that's particularly useful for branding projects.
Node One's Drupal 7 training videos
If you still need an overview on how to install and configure Drupal 7, look no further than Node One's series of training videos. Not only do they have a series on installing and configuring a Drupal 7 site, but they also have a comprehensive series on Views.
Chapter Three's Fireworks templates
These posts, put together by San Francisco's Chapter Three, offer a templated approach to wireframing and design layout, and offer Fireworks templates for download.
Here's an interesting service I found online for working with card-sorting/post-ups in virtual teams. Looks like it's free to use, and works reasonably well. I also enjoy that the boxes look like sticky notes and have more room on them; that's not the case with Optimal Workshop's card-sorting service.
Balsamiq Mockups Drupal Components
These components, put together by Stephanie from Fusion Themes, make it much easier and faster to put together quick mockups for Drupal implementations.
Balsamiq Mockups 960 templates
I put these together to get a quick jumpstart to putting together wireframe sketches. They're based on the 960 grid system.
