There are some smokin threads on here about maples, be sure to search and read them. I like the book Bonsai with Japanese maples by Peter Adams. I purchased it from Stone Lantern. Another great resource is http://www.evergreengardenworks.com/japmaple.htm

It's fall I hope people post some fall maples... My favorite trees for color.

I would suggest that it is never too early to consider nebari. When you line out your maples, try to arrange the roots radially so you don't have to correct poor nebari later on.
I speak from experience on this matter.

I agree the book mentioned raydomz is probably one of the best definitive guides for working with maples. Your local library should have a number of great bonsai books that you can check out and read for free.
