January 30, 2013 was the release date of our newest publication,
"Men In The Company of Women, A Provocative Anthology
of Praise & Persuasion"

Long anticipated, this incredible anthology was released and greeted
with much praise due to the surprisingly candid, honest and cutting edge collective of contemporary literature found on these pages, written by men from across the globe. Each passage is an open door, allowing the reader a glimpse into the psyche of the male gender and the impact of women upon
it relayed with cinematic vision etched upon the pages.

In often voyeuristic articulation, this compilation of poetry, short stories
& memoir present rare perspectives shared by over 100 brilliant male writers. One of our greatest accomplishments yet, Men In The Company of Women, A Provocative Anthology of Praise & Persuasion can be found and
purchased from Amazon today!
