content and information about plants, Inspirations is very much
about living well, especially outdoors. Its tone, structure, and
composition appeal to readers, mostly women, who are looking for
practical, time-saving, and novel ideas to enhance their garden

MENSBOOK JOURNAL is dedicated to informing and entertaining
unusually bright gay men who crave more from gay media.
Our publication comes to our readers in the form of a book,
but our style is best described as a hybrid between a
magazine and journal–combining an engaging writing style
with occasional scholarly rigor. We seek lifestyle stories
about interesting single gay men and gay couples and are
interested in publishing inspirational stories; e.g.,
stories of courage, determination, stamina; come-backs;
men who have faced the odds and triumphed. We like to
visit successful men in their work, at play, and in their
home lives. We publish thoughtful criticism on books, media,
sports, politics, social issues, music, the environment.
We are interested in publishing short story fiction.
