What's the best way to find out what new manga volumes are being released? I'd like to start buying new manga but rather than wait till it's about 20 or so down the line it would be nice to start when they first come out.

Most English language manga are published by Viz (http://www.viz.com/) and Kodansha (http://kodanshacomics.com/) ; if you go to their webpages, they will tell you want manga have just been (or are about to be) released.

Otherwise, you can always "train" amazon (via a wishlist, for instance) to know that you like manga, and have it look for new manga arriving that you might like.

Neither suggestion is perfect, but I can't think of a better one.

There is also Yen Press ( http://www.yenpress.com/ ). They've started releasing new manga in print, that is sold at most book stores. They also have an app, where you can download the manga that doesn't make it to print.

One online only manga Yen Press is going to release soon is Servant x Service, so I'm super exited about that.

Yen Press has also started doing light novels in English, which I'm super happy about.

if you truly want new manga, you can check the announcement of when a new manga is released by the publisher.
(which is really just a polished version of chapters that have already been released in previous magazine)

example for shoujo manga serialized by Nakayoshi magazine:
http://nakayosi.kodansha.co.jp/latest.html

they might also announce it on twitter.
note: 発売 indicates that the product is for sale.
