“Mother’s Embrace” Anthology book is now available on Amazon

“MOTHER’S EMBRACE: A collection of literary works for all Mothers that went through Labor to bring their children into the world”. 

In this age of superheroes, let us not forget that we already have heroes among us, and they are called ‘MOTHERS’. All Hail the Good Mothers whether housewives or working moms! They are the Mighty Mothers or Superwomen. Nonetheless, Mother’s Day is not all roses, cards, and fine dining restaurants for some. This is not a day of joy for everyone. For some, there is Mother’s Day without a mother due to death. There is Mother’s Day, but the real mother has not been met or seen. McKinley Publishing Hub worked on collecting all these literary works to honour all our mothers who have sacrificed much in order for us to be who we are.  

And there are many aspects of motherhood that go unrecognized. The alternative and atypical mothers are left out of the picture. So, we are here to recognize the Mothers in Name Only. Mothers who are losing a battle. Lost Mothers. Unknown Mothers. Single Mothers. Double Mothers. The Dad Mothers. Nurturing the Child of Another or a stranger. The Pseudo Mothers. Soon-to-be Mothers. We recognize the Un-mothered Children. Children raised without a mother. We recognize Children with Withholding Mothers. To whom should they go? Where else would they be? No one else with whom to rest. But in their MOTHER’S EMBRACE.

If you liked this book, and if you want to honor all our mothers — past, present, and future — please share this with your friends and loved ones! This one is for all moms!

Don Luman-ag/Published Author, MPH CEO

I Love You to the Moon and Back Anthology Book is Now Available on Amazon

Love is all around us. Whether it is a profound love for a higher being, a dedicated love to a spouse or partner, tender love for children and siblings, loyal love for friends, or love for pets, seeing depth in a simple shared chore, knowing someone’s triumphs are yours, coming to terms with someone’s mistakes, feeling sad for someone’s sadness, we all share in the splendours of love. From bliss to misery, often, we find ourselves at a loss for words to describe the intensity. 

 I LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK contains perfectly penned verses that brilliantly paint the pictures of our hearts.  By reading this anthology book, we realize just how vast this can be, to the moon and back, and how universal and powerful this feeling is. These 100+ love poems give us a real and profound sense of our time in this universe, and the pleasures they offer are – like space itself – infinite.

Everyone who cares about poetry should own this book.

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS: Yuletide Poetry Anthology

All I Want For Christmas. This iconic song is a world Christmas staple. Vince Vance & the Valiants epitomize holiday cheer and goodwill with this Christmas classic. Christmas is a celebration of the best in all of us.

This fascinating poetry anthology book is biblically oriented, theologically rich, and easy to digest. Indeed, the poets worldwide put together comprehensive Christmas wishes in a neat package from material to spiritual in contemporary times. Our love for each other, the true feeling of brotherhood amongst us all.

Here’s hoping that everyone gets their wishes for Christmas, but remember an old proverb: “what you get, you lose. What you give, you keep forever”. Your support is a gift to McKinley Publishing Hub. Merry Christmas!

The book is elegant. All the poems in this anthology are of high quality. The layout and artworks are excellent too. This is a wonderful gift for Christmas!
