# Writing several lines before chapter title

How can I get the style like:

# chapter 1

bla bla bla bla ...

bla bla bla bla ...

A paragraph before chapter title --- this line is precisely on place where the first line of the other pages start.

the second line

# chapter 2

bla bla bla bla ...

# chapter 3

bla bla bla bla ...

This question is concerned with Why chapter label below the section label on new page even if by setting same spacing before title (use titlesec package)?

Edit (for Yiannis) Thanks. However, that isn't my demand. See below .

Use the epigraph package.

Edit:

To remove unwanted space use \beforeepigraphskip=0pt. Here is a minimal:

\documentclass{book}  \usepackage[papersize={200pt,270pt}]{geometry}
\usepackage{epigraph}
\usepackage{titlesec} \titleformat{\chapter}{\Large\bfseries}{Ch. \thechapter}{0em}{} \titlespacing*{\chapter}{0pt}{0pt}{0pt}
\begin{document}
\chapter{abc}\beforeepigraphskip=0pt
