STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART
By BREIGH FORSTNER
AVAILABLE ON AMAZON NOW!
‘MUSIC WAS IN HIS BLOOD, AND SHE WAS IN HIS HEART…..’
Cale Pelton didn’t want to fall in love.
Fresh off a breakup, he was scrambling to find a new lead guitarist for his band, Everlasting, before they went on tour. He wanted to enjoy being single, singing his heart out nightly to fans.
Never did he expect to meet Bryn Schaefler, the sassy rich girl that would change his life.
Bryn left her parents’ house with only her suitcase and guitar, leaving her old life behind her. She nails the band audition and becomes Everlasting’s new lead guitarist. Bryn didn’t want to find Cale attractive, let alone develop a crush on a bandmate. But when trouble starts to find the band, Bryn starts to believe her family will do whatever it takes to get her home.
Will Cale and Bryn listen to their heads and stay strictly professional? Or will they follow their hearts and admit their feelings towards each other?
Do you write under your real name or is this a pen name you use?: I write under my real name (Breigh Forstner)
Where are you from?: I am from South east Michigan in a town called Port Huron (I live about five minutes away from the Blue Water Bridge, which connects us to Canada) so I always thought that was pretty cool.
List 3 interesting facts about yourself.:
1) Besides writing, I work full-time at a Customs Broker office,
2) I have two girls that are 4 & 3, and I’ve gotten them into the love of reading.
3) I love going to concerts and listening to rock music on a nightly basis.
What was the first thing you ever had published?:
“Straight from the Heart” was my first published book that was fully edited, formatted, the whole bit. I did have a book come out a year earlier in 2013 called “Forever and Always,” but that was before I fully embraced myself into the author world and had no editing done, or formatting (BIG mistake) but since then, I’ve taken it down off of Amazon.
Do you have a writing routine?:
Mainly it is as soon as I get my kids to bed, I get a nightly snack and fire up my computer and start writing. I can usually get a couple of hours in a night, but it depends on how tired I am.
Do you have any writing rituals?:
Yes, I usually always turn on my writing playlist on YouTube before I open up my word document and start writing. I HAVE to have music on when I’m writing to keep me focused.
Where did the idea for your most recent book come from?:
It was based off of the first three books in the series. I also based some of the certain scenes off of songs that I think fit well into the story and try to incorporate that as well.
Who was the first person you shared your book with? :
I believe it was my brother, who had done the editing for it.
Do you have a current work in progress?:
Yes I do! I’m working on book 4 in my series and it’s called “Trusting My Heart.” I’ve been working on it for almost a year coming up in February, and it’s the conclusion for now in my Straight from the Heart series.
Do you have any advice for budding authors?:
Don’t stop writing! And before you hit publish, make sure your book is edited not once, but twice, maybe even three times. It can never hurt to have extra sets of eyes when writing a book and catching mistakes.
