My First Writer’s Update – or something like that.

Photo by Markus Winkler on

So, yes, this is my first official writer’s update. The intention is to post two to three times a week. One of those posts will be themed along with the Character Collective Podcast. So, this week, we talked about our writing processes, and I shared a bit more on that in the blog. The second will be an update of what I am up to as a writer. What I’m working on, lessons I’ve learned, problems I’ve encountered, etc. It’s kind of a journaling process for me and I’m trusting it may help a few people out there with inspiration, or something. Lol. Any additional posts will relate to research I’m currently working on, anything interesting I’ve uncovered during my uni studies, or you know, things and stuffs I’ve discovered that help me as a writer and may help you.

But this isn’t just for writers. I AM a writer and though I love sharing my experience and hopefully inspiring others, my main goal is to share my characters and their stories with readers, so I may post excerpts, character descriptions, side stories… To be honest, I won’t even know until it happens, haha. I’m getting my feet here so thank you for coming along for the journey.

Feedback, questions, tips, etc, are all welcome. I’ll review all comments regularly so come play 🙂 For now, let’s get into my first writer’s update!

Cupid’s Guide Series

  • Book 1 – Cupid’s Guide to Getting F*cked Up, is ready to rock and roll with the launch on October the 1st. I’ll be submitting it off to KDP in the next 48 hours and placing my first ads on the 1st. Super exciting.
  • Add Cupid’s Guide to Getting F*cked Up to your GoodReads List now for early access!
  • Book 2 – Cupid’s Guide to Getting Laid and Book 3 – Cupid’s Guide to F*cking the Rules are both ready to publish, I’m just waiting on the cover designer to get back to me.
  • Next I’ll be planning out book 4 and aim to have the first draft (dumbest version) done by the end of October.

Write Now Book Writing Series

  • The main four books in the series are available.
  • Just need to finalise a bonus workbook and then I’ll be boxing this up as a set 🙂

This Week in the World of Kai Parker

Well, there was that uni assignment due but I kicked it off to the f*ckit bucket two days early. I meeeeaaannn… I totally worked my ass off and managed to submit my assignment early. Haha. The reality is somewhere in the middle. Anyway, this week I was working with the added challenges of uni (why did I choose to do that to myself… again?) and the Character Collective Podcast which is still new and therefore, still providing some learning challenges. But, I did get my cover design submissions off for Cupid 2 and 3, so that’s something.

For those unaware, I also write as PJ Silva and most of my week this week has been spent in that space. Check out for more on that 🙂

Thanks for Playing

Well, that’s it for my writer’s update this week. Now that I’ve decided to make this a weekly thing, I’ll keep it in the back of mind and hopefully have something a little more interesting to share next time, haha. Until then, catch the Character Collective Podcast on Spotify, iTunes, Google Podcast, and like, a bunch of places. Or just CLICK HERE, that’ll work too. Also, feel free to leave any questions or feedback in the comments. Let me know what YOU would like me to share as a writer.

Until next time – keep on reading!
