BLURB supplied by Itching For Books
Bryn Schaefler grew up rich. Her parents expected the best out of her, picked her boyfriend for her, and groomed her to be the next trophy wife fresh out of High School. But when they discover she wants to pursue music instead of following in her mothers footsteps, they wanted to hear nothing about it.

That was when Bryn left for good.

By chance, she auditioned for main stream rock band Everlasting. Never in a million years did she think she would make it.

Cale Pelton knew it was his fault for the band scrambling around to find a new guitarist. Once he saw Bryn audition, he knew he had to have her. Not just in the band, but in his mind, body and soul.

Music played a huge part in creating this story about Bryn following her dreams and doing what she loved. I’ve included here some of the music I listened to while writing “Straight from the Heart,” that also helped shaped the characters to be who they are! Note, these songs are in order of the chapters as they were used for chapter titles in the book.

Second Chance by Shinedown: I had this song pictured in my mind the whole time writing the opening scene to the book. This was when Bryn walked out the door of her parents’ house and into her future. It’s a very emotional song and I tried to capture that same kind of emotion with Bryn as she was doing something she hasn’t thought about doing before.

Demons by Imagine Dragons: This was the song Bryn played for her audition for Everlasting.

Don’t Stop Believing by Journey: I thought of this as an inspirational song. This was when Bryn got the call from Cale that she made the band, and had met with him for lunch.

Nothing But A Good Time by Poison: The perfect pick me up song for Bryn’s first day on the tour.

King for a Day by Pierce the Veil featuring Kellan Quinn: Bryn’s first experience on stage. (I should’ve changed the title to ‘Queen’ for a day

One Thing by One Direction: Such a sweet song. I had to add it into the book regardless if it fit or not.

Lips of an Angel by Hinder: Bryn had agreed to go on a date with Damon Charming, lead singer of Ignite the Flames.

Seize the Day by Avenged Sevenfold: Seize the day. Enough said!

Face Down by the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus: Bryn catches Cale in a compromising position.

I Hate Everything About You by Three Days Grace: Bryn was still mad at Cale for doing what he did at the club. I thought this song was fitting for her emotions at the time.

Congratulations by Sleeping with Sirens featuring Matty Mullins: Bryn was reunited with her best friends in California, Gina and Bethany!

Addicted by Saving Abel: I added this song in, thinking immediately of the instant chemistry Bryn and Cale had from the very beginning. They had feelings for each other, and soon became addicted.

She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5: Bryn and the group was finally back from tour and she was glad to be back to her temporary home.

Love Like War by All Time Low featuring Vic Fuentes: This was when Bryn and the group went into the studio to record their album, with Tyler, for the first time.

Tears Don’t Fall by Bullet for my Valentine: Bryn had just found out about what happened between Cale and Tyler Donahue, a former member of the band, before she joined the group.

Run Free by Asking Alexandria: I really connected to the lyrics when writing this chapter. The chorus says “Open your eyes and your mind to a new world,” and I found that perfectly fitting for Bryn.

No Ordinary Love by Memphis May Fire: The title of this song describes Bryn and Cale’s relationship perfectly. This is no ordinary love.

The Final Episode by Asking Alexandria: Everlasting had just gotten to the festival they were going to be playing at, and Bryn had a feeling something was going to wrong.

Outside by Staind: This was the beginning of the end. Of the book that was. While Bryn and Vince were onstage something traumatic happened offstage, affecting each of the members of Everlasting, especially Bryn.
