About Harvey Stanbrough

Harvey Stanbrough is an award-winning writer and poet. He’s fond of saying he was born in New Mexico, seasoned in Texas, and baked in Arizona. After 21 years in the US Marine Corps, he managed to sneak up on a BA degree at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales in 1996. Because he is unable to do otherwise, he splits his writing personality among four personas: Gervasio Arrancado writes magic realism; Nicolas Z “Nick” Porter writes spare, descriptive, Hemingway-style fiction; and Eric Stringer writes the fiction of an unapologetic neurotic. Harvey writes whatever they leave to him. You can see their full bios at

A brief and practical manual - i printed it out (only 26 pages), read it and marked it up, then followed its instructions as I published my first e-book (To Trade Or Not to Trade: A Beginner's Manual). Harvey hit all the key points: from formatting (no tabs, no footers, etc.) to cover design (various pixels for different websites), to distribution. Simple, practical, and useful!

In a concise publication Harvey has done an excellent job of providing formatting details for submitting books to Smashwords, Amazon, and B&N. This is essential information for anybody intending to enter the somewhat different world of E publishing. I'm planning to submit my first novel, and I expect to rely heavily on Harvey's suggestions.

This is a nifty little blueprint for writers moving into the E Pub world.It is well organized, illustrated and articulated. It belongs right in the center of a writer's critical reference sources.
