Favorite Things in My World by MPH Published Author Kathy Jo Bryant

I’ve been honored and privileged to be able to publish Kathy Jo’s poetry in four of the Sweetycat Press’s anthologies. Her poetry is always warm, charming, and delightful to read. In those books, her poems ranged from the beauty of the Lilies of the Valley to the music of the Bowed Psaltery,  to pondering the strain of carrying a jug atop your head. In Kathy Jo’s newest book, “Favorite Things In My World”, written for children of all ages, and the child in each of us, included is her fascination with bumble bees in “Bumble Bee,” a tribute to giraffes in “The Gamboling Giraffe,” and her affection for bunny rabbits in “I Love it So.” Take it from me, her poetry is pure magic.

Golden Glowing Mushroom by Kathy Jo Bryant on this link



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.
