Two young men from different backgrounds.

Can they find friendship and love while surrounded by those who consider their desires to be forbidden?

Hope, fear, a fresh start, a cold expanse of nothingness.

What will Thomas Ng’s front door mean for Daniel Grimm?

Lieutenant Penton has two problems: dealing with society functions and hiding his passion for Isaac, a slave.

Hauled to work in Hawaii, Tudor has little time to enjoy the island paradise.

His obnoxious friend Radu has it much easier, using his free time to set Tudor up, dangling a willing Hawaiian beauty in front of him.

Having been burned by long-distance relationships before, Tudor stubbornly resists Kahoni’s advances.

But can Tudor be worn down enough to enjoy a touch of paradise?

Books Coming!

My author page is up in Wayward Ink Publishing (WIP)’s website!

I’m quite ecstatic to announce that toward the end of last year, I signed two contracts with WIP, one short story in anthology Mix and Match, and one standalone novelette/novella.

I must admit I felt like I had advantage for the anthology, being Chinese living in Australia, and my partner being Caucasian.
I am very proud of my story though. The anthology will be coming out soon.

 

 

Recent activities in the writing world.

I’m feeling a bit guilty for not doing my free writing in the last couple of weeks. I’m afraid the cliched busy life and work and all is no longer acceptable.

I have, however, been drafting, revising and editing two of my stories for anthologies for Wayward Ink Publishing, and they are going well, I suppose.

It is a bit more difficult when one doesn’t have a beta reader, but I feel like it’d be still okay to edit by myself if I give it enough time to go through multiple drafts and enough time so that I can have a fresh pair of eyes every edit.

Also, having some friends that are interested in reading the drafts helps too.

Writer’s Edit has a great guide on steps to revise one’s story.

One last note: don’t think I’m claiming to be an expert on revising. In fact I think I’m awful with revising, but a lot of trial-and-errors helps.

I need to get back to blogging

I’ve been thinking of starting a blog for awhile now.

This blog will be mainly for my role as a writer. It’d probably include some of my random thoughts as well.

I’ll definitely come back to this, but I’ll just use the about me page content be my first blog content.

“What about me? Surely you would have guessed that Kevin Caucher is not my real name; it’s just a name I’d chosen for myself quite awhile ago and it got stuck.

Growing up in China, I’ve never found that being Asian and my cultural background would have had this much influence on myself, but I guess I was just silly thinking that. Now I’m happily partnered in NSW, Australia, and I’ve just starting to realise that, yes, of course they’ve had much more influence on my character than I expected.

When and how did I start writing? I actually started writing in Chinese around junior high school, though I never think those writings are any good, but I suppose that kind of started my relationship with pens, or more specifically, pencils. Yes, I still prefer to physically write with pencils, at least with my first drafts.

Then I encountered Creative Writing when I was doing my undergrad degree. Though I don’t like the teacher anymore – that is another story – but she did lead my to the world of creative writing and I am grateful for that. Then, the proverbial “The rest is history.”

Besides writing, I love fashion and did some silly designs myself, though I no longer can find the time to do it. I’m also opening a cafe in October 2015. Then I can finish the cliche that writers always write in cafes.
