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!


McKinley Publishing Hub


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-published-Ilustrados. They believe that there is hope in self-publishing 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 advocate the democratization of opportunities and progress in businesses, 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.


To protect aspiring authors from being exploited and victimized by unscrupulous individuals, business entities, and industry players. 

As an alternative to traditional publishing, to encourage more people, especially the younger generation, to put their talents and skills into good use by writing and publishing their own books via the self-publishing route. 

To stimulate and revitalize the mainstream book industry with the noble goal of producing future Pulitzer Prize winners and internationally acclaimed best-sellers by authors from across cultures and generations.

To spark, especially in our youth, interest, and love for books, and literary arts in general thus encouraging them to excel in their respective niches. 

*To bring honor to each author’s country, to leave a lasting legacy, and contribute to the world community.

Why Publish with MPH?

MPH publishes books in two languages, English and Filipino. We prefer poetry books and children’s picture books. 

We do, however, occasionally consider memoirs, autobiographies, self-help, literacy fiction, mystery, sci-fi novels, fantasy, and nonfiction books. 

MPH is currently accepting submissions via email. If you believe your manuscript would be a good fit for this publishing company, we ask that you include a cover letter with a brief author bio and book synopsis, along with your manuscript. We have a fantastic in-house editorial team who can help with manuscript editing, design, and layout. They are more than happy to work with first-time authors, as well!

We do not offer printing services so far but we are looking forward to expanding our horizons in the near future.
