Chase Taylor Hackett was raised on a farm in the Midwest – far from his current home in New York City. His first novel—WHERE DO I START?— was published by Kensington Books.
While working on that book, he realized he had a character who was a total jerk, and he wondered what would happen if the jerk met a guy who had zero tolerance for jerks.

AND THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW… he’d written another novel, also available from Kensington, and pretty much everywhere else.

Chase lives in Manhattan with his partner Travis.

I had no idea if I could actually do that, but 261 pages later, ta-da!, I did and it's called WHERE DO I START?
With AND THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW..., I had a character who was a total asshole, and I wondered what would happen if he met someone with no patience for assholinity. Assholedness. Something like that. You pick.
I wasn't thinking it at the time, but looking back, both books would seem to be redemption stories. Not sure what that says about me as a person. Not sure I want to know either.

You kids have any bright suggestions for a good example of a book that would fall into the 'fake-boyfriend' category? Gay only, please.

Any thoughts?

Tanks,

Where Do I Start? by Chase Taylor Hackett
Save the Cat! Writes a Novel by Jessica Brody
"A great introduction to the three act story structure. I still think it’s a better fit for screenplays rather than novels, but it’s a good place to start. The book is full of well known novels which are used as examples and is easy to read."
