Funding a corporation

    I'm going to be forming a corporation over the next couple months, but I'm not well versed in accounting or business law.  Here's my situation:

     

    I plan on funding my corporation with say, $10,000 up front.  I will deposit the money into my business bank account, and issue 100% of the shares to myself.  My question is, what happens when I want to contribute more capital to the company now that there are no remaining shares?  Do I simply deposit the money into my business account, making the value of the company go up?  Or are there other tax/stock implications I must worry about.

     

    I'm not even close to finishing my research, so if anyone could recommend some SOLID reading (preferably a book) on this matter it would be greatly appreciated.
