Hickory Ditch, Arkansas – July 2012
Popular fried chicken chain Wings of Glory is under attack from homosexual activists, and Harvest Mission Pentecostal Church is ready to fight back.
Caught in the crossfire of a culture war in which they never enlisted, Casper and Brant will each have to find his own answer to the age-old question: Am I really what I eat? Because if they could find the courage to tell each other their truths, they might discover there really is life after the Ditch.
CHICKEN is a Southern Gothic YA novel with an infusion of magical realism. It’s a raw, honest, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant look at falling in love in a place where angels and demons are believed in without question, but the human heart is always subject to suspicion.
Chase Night was born and raised and currently resides in Arkansas, which he claims is both much better and far worse than everything you’ve heard. He shares his home with a fiancee, three dogs, a cat, and an immortal garden snail.
Chase has also lived on the outskirts of New York City, where he briefly shared a basement apartment with a ghost named Amelia, and in the heart of Austin, Texas, where he briefly worked for a professional big game hunter and even more briefly attended the Austin Theological Seminary. (Chase is not known for his decision-making abilities.)
Now Chase devotes his time to writing fiction, creative non-fiction, and screenplays. He describe his novels, Chickenand The Natural State, as Southern Gothic or Rural Fantasy, anything but Paranormal Romance. He hopes his work appeals to all ages, but he has a passion for Young and New Adult literature.
He has been blogging haphazardly at Unbridled Existence since 2010.
