Meet Stonebrook Publishing

Stonebrook Publishing is a small press dedicated to bringing high-impact nonfiction books to the reading public.

We pursue works that will change lives, save lives, or transform society.

Our published books have both commercial appeal and a purpose behind them.

While Stonebrook Publishing titles certainly attract a broad audience, they also offer a deeper value to the reader and, we hope, to society itself.


You have a powerful story to tell. Stonebrook Publishing starts with your non-fiction manuscript. It's time to share your story with the world - and we're here to help.


We'll edit and format your manuscript, work together to select design elements for your book, and do a final proofread to ensure the grammar, flow, and look are perfect for you.


From copyright registration to printing, Stonebrook Publishing handles all the details to bring your book to life. Print as many copies as you like or offer an e-book. 

About Stonebrook Publishing

Stonebrook Publishing, a nonfiction press dedicated to publishing works that will save lives, change lives, or transform society, was established in 2010. We released our first nonfiction work, Storming the Tulips, by Ronald Sanders and Hannie J. Voyles that year. Hannie Voyles is a Holocaust survivor who went to school with Anne Frank, and we held a book release celebration at their school in Amsterdam in May of 2011.

A subsequent book, A Life in Parts, by Vicki Bennington and Daniel Brannon was released in October, 2013, and we received back-cover endorsements for that work from Sir Paul McCartney and Cindy Crawford. 

Nancy L. Erickson is the owner of Stonebrook Publishing. She also owns two other book-related businesses: The Book Professor and

Publishing With Us | How It Works

It all starts with your manuscript

Final Editing: When you’ve finished your manuscript, it’s time to hand it over to a professional editor for the final polish. At Stonebrook Publishing, we will edit your manuscript for consistency and clarity, weave in elements of your personal story at appropriate points, construct the title page, copyright page, front matter, and back matter. At the conclusion of this step, your manuscript will be complete and ready for publication.



The Publishing Process

Design book cover and interior:

Our professional Stonebrook Publishing designers will produce a sizzling cover and beautiful interior that presents a top-notch product that fits your brand and projects the reputation you have worked so hard to build.

Proofread the contents: 

After your book is laid out for publication, we conduct one final proofread to ensure that any mistakes in grammar, punctuation, or layout are caught and corrected.

Publish your book:

We format, publish, and distribute your print book to Amazon and all other major outlets throughout the world. We also secure and purchase your ISBN numbers and register the copyright—in your name—with the Library of Congress. Your book will be professionally published by Stonebrook Publishing via print-on-demand, and you can order as many or as few copies as you choose. All rights belong to you.
