Comfort for All Seasons by Author Frieda Norma Dela Cruz is Now Available on Amazon

Comfort for All Seasons – Volume 1, is a collection of candid, charming and heartfelt poems, essays and quotes of a woman who began to devote herself to writing as a new career after the death of her husband. They say life is a gift and precious. How about death? Is death a gift too? Can life be precious without death? Can life be precious if it is not so fragile, so easily be taken away from us? Can life be precious if it is not so short? If we can live for ever, if life just keeps going on and on, will we treasure the moments? It is clear to Frieda that we treasure the special moments in our lives precisely because they don’t last!
It is in this sense that death is a gift. Without death, without impermanence, we won’t have the preciousness of life. And it is only when we embrace all the four seasons of life, not cherry-picking them, that we can live in grace and beauty.

THE MCKINLEY PUBLISHING HUB is founded in the Pearl of the Orient: PHILIPPINES. Literally, McKinley is a street name where one of the three founders of the publishing company lives. In the context of Philippine History, "McKinley" are the Filipino Ilustrados who fought for freedom and real progress in the Philippines way back during the colonization era of Spain and America in our land. Ilustrados are the enlightened ones, not necessarily rich but surely educated formally (like Jose Rizal) or self-taught (like Andres Bonifacio or Emilio Jacinto or Josefa Llanes Escoda). They held the "enlightenment torch" to light and lead the way for Filipinos living in the "dark" towards a bright future full of hope. Fast forward to now, 2021 which is a century hence plus some more decades after Rizal, Bonifacio and Escoda. There is this new batch of self-published-Ilustrados again. Don Luman-ag, Dexter Amoroso, and Eureka Cambonga Bianzon Robey are these new self-publishedIlustrados. They believe that there is hope in the self-publishimg in the not only for the Filipinos but for the whole world. This time, Don, Dex and Eureka will see to it that they will not be misunderstood (because they are good communicators). This time they will also commit not to fail (because they have a passion for excellence). Besides, real heroism for them is not to put themselves on top of pedestals but for them to make more heroes of this new revolution in publishing. More heroes advocating the democratization of opportunities and progress in businesses, in learning institutions, and in individuals. ALL THESE THROUGH MCKINLEY PUBLISHING HUB. Welcome us as we dynamically adapt so that you all can excel and achieve your dream of becoming a published author.
