1. The Man Behind the Mirror Feat. Marc Hayford Maccabee and Marccella 42:16

Rocky Balboa said it best when he said, ” You see this guy staring back at you…that’s the toughest opponent you’re ever going to have to face.” When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see someone living their best life, or someone whose wasting it away? If it’s the latter, Marc Hayford has two words for ya…Get Up! In his book, Get Up: Encouraging You To Attack Life (A Marc Hayford Power Book), Marc doesn’t pull his punches or mix words when it comes to getting you to change your mindset. He has a passion for inspiring people to look at their lives in the way only he knows how…tough love. So if you get offended easily, this book isn’t for you. But if you need someone by your side while still in the trenches of your fear and despair, this is the book for you.

Maccabee is a husband of 19 yrs, father of two boys, Army vet, voice actor, writer, and podcast co-host of Beyond the Pen. Growing up in the theater and working as a voice actor, script analysis has been a critical skill he's been perfecting over the years. This skill has allowed him to look past what the author wants you to see and discover the truth between the words and the printed paper. Every story is unique, and so are the authors.

Marccella, a self-proclaimed bookworm, is an advocate for authors and their unique voices. Since learning to read at aged 6, Marccella could be found in the library with her nose in a good book. As an avid reader, Marccella recognized that there was untapped potential in the author community and was decidedly committed to creating valuable spaces to have conversations with writers of all genres. As a result, Marccella united with Maccabee (her brother from another mother) to further her vision of expanding the reach of authors and their audience.
