The Agency Games

The Agency Games – Sign Up!

As you all know I have been working on my book, The Agency Games (working title) for the past several months and I turned it in (all 78,218 words) to the publishing house on May 11th!

Originally, I intended to send it to the Peer Reviewers on May 31st but I exceeded my own expectations and finished early! I also just received news that my rough manuscript is currently in the hands of two peer reviewers! Hopefully this means my book will be published and sold in late 2018 instead of early 2019, but it is too soon to tell. I have to wait a couple of weeks (possibly months) before I hear back from the Peer Reviewers, and I am kind of nervous, but I can’t wait to read their feedback! Hopefully they love it and also have some constructive advice on how to improve it.

As I get closer to publishing The Agency Games, I’m hoping to start a list of people who are interested in my book.

Again, if you leave a comment that does not mean that you have to buy the book and I promise not to spam anyone with emails. I am only trying to get a realistic idea of who is currently interested in a scholarly look at the beloved Hunger Games series!

The Agency Games

Haymitch Abernathy

Haymitch Abernathy is known by every single person in Panem as the Drunk Mentor for District 12. One of his most infamous moments is when he took a head-dive off the stage during the reaping for the 74th-Hunger Games. To most he is a fool, a drunk, and a blubbering, staggering idiot. But is that all he is?

If you love Haymitch, you will want to read my chapter on his character titled, “It’s All a Big Show” to learn the truth behind Haymitch’s clandestine motives and hidden agency in a society of “un-reality”!

BONUS: This is one of the GREATEST FAN-MADE videos of content from The Hunger Games. MainstayPro portrayed the Second Quarter Quell in which Haymitch is the winner and let me tell you, it does not disappoint. All images and content from the below video are property of MainstayPro, I am just sharing their magnificent work.

WARNING: Graphic images for young or sensitive viewers.

Haymitch Approves this Post!

The Agency Games

Wanna Play a Game?

In my upcoming book, The Agency Games (working title), I am analyzing human agency within The Hunger Games trilogy. However, in one of my chapters I am pulling in some outside material from other young adult dystopian stories such as The Maze Runner and Divergent. In particular, I will be incorporating some dialogue from and analysis of Ender’s Game.

While Ender’s Game is technically well-known as a science-fiction, it also fits within the genre of young adult dystopia with its six-year old main protagonist, Ender.

Have you ever wondered why parents and adult figures are so lacking within young adult dystopia literature? Is there a point to their absence beyond shining light on the protagonist? And why is this absence so prevalent in today’s stories?

I will be addressing these questions and more in my book so be sure to keep following for updates if you want to be made aware of release parties and early access to the book in 2019!

Happy Writing Everyone!
