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.

Mga Tulang Pamasko , Alay ng mga  Makatang Pilipino

Christmas day is the most awaited day of the whole year. It is also the time of wishes such as a wish to see the world, a wish to end the pandemic, a friend wish, a food wish, or Noche Buena. Although many wishes remain, some have already been fulfilled; such as Lechon, Bibingka, Pinoy-style spaghetti, Leche flan, Puto-bumbong, lumpia and chocolate. But more than that … The baby Jesus was born. Merry Christmas!


Greetings from Three Magis of the McKinley Publishing Hub

Dex, Don , & Eureka holding three of McKinley Publishing Hub’s Published Book on Amazon

We are the three Magis of the MCKINLEY PUBLISHING HUB. And our birthday gifts to Baby Jesus on His BIRTHDAY are “Saving the World, One Poem at a Time”, “All I Want For Christmas” and “Hiling Sa Araw Ng Pasko” anthology books.

Let us see the destiny ahead of us and not be short-sighted by simply living for this world and for ourselves or to keep on regretting about our past. Let us come back to God by seeking repentance. God is our Father and He will bring us back to him.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!! Let us democratize access to publications by offering aspiring authors easier and more economical alternative to traditional publishing. We aim to encourage more people especially the younger generation to put their literary talents and skills into good use by writing and publishing their own books via the self-publishing route.

May the God-Baby Jesus bless us. He who after being born poor, became a poor fugitive baby too, hunted for threatening the violent world with His gentleness and love and saving Graces!

“Dream Weaver” by Author Napoleon Torres Published by McKinley Publishing Hub!

This book is now Available on Amazon!

Dream Weaver
Published by McKinley Publishing Hub

Nap’s poetry prizes simplicity. But that simplicity is NOT accomplished by the ignoring of details, and the minimalism is not a result of sloppiness. The simplicity found in Nap’s poems are the result of intense care and attention. It is with care the poet prunes and drops what is unnecessary.

From his seat in the secluded farm, Nap uses his senses to experience his surroundings. He shares his thoughts by writing poems about nature, God, and his beloved grandchildren. While he often uses nature as his main theme the power of his poems do not lie in presenting nature as it is. It lies in his imagination.

Jill’s Tales by Author Jill Tait Book Released


Hardcover Black and White…/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc…

Hardcover colored…/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc…

Jill’s Tales tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth, about me and my entire life-long happenstances.

I began writing from my earliest memories of an innocent child, a fisherman’s youngest daughter. I was born and bred in a small seaside village, which boasts beautiful beaches and castles on the coastal shores.

Throughout my married years as a Mother and a wife, where I now dwell in the picturesque countryside.I add my Life in verses of Jill’s Tales, which I hope you, the reader, enjoy immensely…
