no single guide, but many relevant subjects to study:

- metadata in documents (EXIF, headers, etc.) can betray you.

- a collection of facts or data can identify you (e.g. limited access
== limited suspects)

- the expert guidance itself can identify you (stylometry)

- hosted services can point toward you (you seem to assume a hidden
service will be uncovered, so anonymous hosting of a hidden service
appears requisite; procuring hosting anonymously another long

- third parties are liabilities, the more entities you interact with
en route to disclosure, the more potentially identifying information
you leak along the way.
