Empowering Emerging Authors with Insights into the Publishing World for Long-Term Success

     Welcome to Beyond the Pen, the podcast that's all about helping unknown and newly published authors tell their stories. We dive deep into the five essential storytelling elements of plot, setting, characters, point of view, and conflict style to explore what makes a compelling and unforgettable tale.

     But we don't stop there. We also uncover the flaws and revelations of established authors on their own literary journeys to inspire and encourage new storytellers to take risks and tell unique stories. And, we educate our audience about the publishing world, giving them the tools they need to find long-term success for themselves.

     So whether you're a seasoned writer or just starting out, join us on Beyond the Pen for insightful discussions, practical advice, and inspiration to take your writing to the next level.

I love listening to Maccabee and Marccella as they highlight the works of notable authors. This is a great podcast for book lovers and authors alike! I highly recommend this podcast!


I love the show! Interviews are from a great perspective and show preparedness and thought.

I love how thoughtful and informed the host was during the episode I listened to. The author had children on the spectrum and the host handled the conversation with care but also kept it interesting. My only complaint is that I wish the episode went longer. Time really flew as I was listening.
