About this Book: 
Coming soon from 
McFarland Publishing House and author Kayla Ann

Summary Courtesy of Author:

The working title of my non-fiction book is The Agency Games. In this book, I will be examining human agency within the popular Hunger Games trilogy. I will be doing in-depth character analyses of individuals such as: Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark, Gale Hawthorne, Haymitch Abernathy, Cinna, Primrose Everdeen, and more in trying to understand how human agency is discovered, maintained, tested, lost, and regained in a dystopian society and how that relates to us as readers. 

Human agency, simply stated, is the individual's ability to act based on intention and desire. However, intentions and desires are affected by a plethora of internal and external constraints which is what makes human agency so complex. The book is loosely scheduled to be published in late 2018 or early 2019.

Why Consistency is Crucial
Guest Article from Kayla Ann 

Every new writer in every country has asked this question: how do I become an author?
We ask established authors for tip and tricks on how to become like them. Well, I believe that there is one major difference in being a writer and being an author.

Being an author requires consistency--in every aspect of your 'job'. You must have consistency when you write (and I encourage you to write every single day). You must have consistency in marketing your work to agents or publishing houses (if you go the traditional route). You must have consistency in marketing yourself to your own audience (if you are self-publishing or just promoting your own work). 

Whatever you do, do it well and do it continuously.

You want to be an author instead of a writer? Write consistency until you look around and realize, you are an author after all. 

About the Author
My name is Kayla Ann and I have been writing since I could hold a pencil. The earliest stories of my childhood include a unicorn that fell in love with a dinosaur and a young girl named Kate who didn't really want to be a pirate. As I have aged, I remained true to my love of fantasy, but I am now also fascinated by how stories work. My desire to investigate and understand literature has brought me to my latest venture and first traditionally published work.
