Braving The Wrestling Road

Hello Readers, 


I might not be a Wrestler, but a writer in their world has a really hard job surviving. I guess you could ask me the question, then why are you braving the road? 


Why are you doing this?


What would make you want to put it all on the line? 


Tonight I'm going to open up to you and tell you straight from the shoulder. 

' Back when I was a little girl I had to fight for my education to be kept in mainstream, I had to fight for my movement, for my freedom and sometimes my life. I came across a Wrestling tape not long after my best friend Rosy died. I was lost and I watched the most amazing thing that day. I can't remember who it was, all I remember feeling was that I wanted to see more. 


That was what I did. It wasn't long before I was sucked into the storylines, the characters, the costumes and the entertainers (Wrestlers) themselves. My life was in a dark time where I was under constant bullying and there was more then once I thought about throwing the towel in. 


It was about that time my ideals entered the screen. Shane Helms, Sean Waltman, Matt Hardy, Jeff Hardy, Amy 'Lita' Dumas and later on Shannon Moore. My dreams were restarted. I was allowed to believe again that there might be a life outside of this condition that was like being at war 24/7. I use to go to sleep in pain and wake up in pain. I use to be so scared of watching those I loved dying infront of me that I would have night terrors. 


My ideals gave me the strength to find myself, gave me the chance to get myself back up on my feet and fight for what I believed in. I was slapped across the face repeatedly for believing in Wrestling and for loving a certain one. I was bullied then for my love of wrestling and less about my condition. 


My condition will be with me for the rest of my life and I will never get to wrestle, but I can give back. I can give them their dream. I can see them take my characters to live and create a world that some other kid or teenager can get sucked into. Where they can be inspired to fight back against their dark times. 


After years of the endless bullying apart of me started to feel safe in hospital, because at least there there wasn't a kid trying to rip out my feeding tube or hurt me. I would face alot things done to me over the years, but I never stopped looking up at them. I never stopped fighting. 


After my Granddad died, I thought I had lost everything. He kept telling me Matt's words "I will not die" and those words got me through the funeral and kept me going long enough for my current boyfriend to come in where he saved me from the guilt I was feeling. 


I wasn't able to start this journey just yet, I had another knock down to come. I was to face 8 weeks in hospital back in 2009 where I was going to realise something. I watched the Hardy Show for the first time and now no one will ever understand what an effect that had on me, but it made me get up and fight once again.  When I was done and out, told there was nothing they could do for my condition anymore I found the strength to fight back through my partner and the inspiration of the Hardy Show. 


It was then that I found Marty. (Cham Pain) still to this very day he will never know what he has inspired nor will he ever know how much I want to make his dreams come true. He has been there for me these last week or so as I battle with the Wrestling series and new haters coming out of the wood work. My condition coming and going, while I face even more doubt about my ability to do this. '


I'm sitting here tonight, unsure of what the future leads for my writing, but I'm turning to  you the readers to ask you to help me. Help me make a set of men's dreams come true.  Please join the movement to get these guys on set of my book series's 'A Different Life' and 'Marie's Tales'. 


These men have laid open their souls to us through the ring, they have created storylines, risked their lives to inspire people like me. I will move Heaven and Hell for these guys if I could, but I can't do this nearly impossible thing alone. I'm asking you to help me make Marty's, Matt's, Jeff's, Shane's Shannon's and my dream come true. 


Please go pick up 'A Different Life: A Christmas Tale of Two Heart's', which is apart of the 'Christmas Anthology' and tell everyone you know to go buy it. Stand behind us with posters, signs, t-shirts, whatever you can and say 'Let a girls life long dream of giving back to the men who made her fight against impossible odds come true'.


I can wish that they will come on board, but wishing isn't enough for me. I want to shake their hands as they enter the set and laugh with them as they muck up their takes. Be there to see them get their dreams. Please help us today. 


Buy a copy of 'A Different Life: A Christmas Tale of Two Hearts' under the 'Sweet Christmas Anthology' on XOXO Publishing right now.  www.xoxopublishing.com/shop-online Help me do the impossible one more time. 


Your author,

Update On My Progress

Hello Readers,

Since I have taken on the challenge to get the whole of the 'A Different Life Series' and 'Marie's Tales' written by the end of the year that means I'm going to need my cheer leading squad behind me. Chaos really does make me write better then at any other time. No idea why, but it seems that it is that way.

Today I have reached chapter 7 in the 4th book of my 20 book series. I'm doing to do a special book coming to the end of the series for Kathy and Charlie. The knowledge behind what happened, but I'm not sure yet whether or not Charlie will have his own series.  So currently I just have 16 more books to go. A huge goal, but I know with the support network behind me then its more then possible to reach it.

I have to say a HUGE shout out to my girl 'Gina' who promotes and pushing the boundaries of the industry all the time. She makes me proud to be one of her authors. Most people forget the hours she puts in and the hard work she puts in. I do notice, I see her up and I see her promoting, I love her to bits for what she does and I wanted her to know on here I was thinking of her as well as being here for her. She is the one of the very few people who can phone me at any time if she needs anything.

I have another three people who I want to push, while I'm on here. Make sure you check out Matt Hardy on his Youtube and make sure you also check out his Twitter. He has been great tweeting me twice this week and he has even Direct Messaged me on there too. He is such a gentlemen and he knows how to take care of his fans so please give him a moment of your time. All links are at the bottom of this blog.

I want to thank the Highway 2 Helms Waitress. She checks out my show and she is always tweeting me, I feel truly honoured she takes time out of her busy day to talk to me. She is also checking out the books and I hope enjoying them. Sometimes she appears in the Chat room for my show!! I really hope one day to get her on the show and have a good old girls talk on the show, maybe have a small gossip about certain men. You NEVER know with me.

I want to give one last shout out to Shane Helms and Mr Garner or ChamPain. They run an awesome show every Wednesday. (Shane Highway 2 Helms is not the same without Marty. He was greatly missed!!!) You can check the out this coming Wednesday at www.geekweek.com/live I will be in the chat room and I will be my usual chatty self. Even if its my birthday on Wednesday. I will be 22 years old this time. NO FAIR I want my 21st back again!!!

I hope to finish off Chapter 8 of the 4th book of 'A Different Life' when I get home today and maybe go on to finish the book. Keep an eye out on Twitter cause I will be updating them regularly. That link will also be at the bottom of this page. I have to go now since I'm getting my hair done and not finished chapter 7 so see you all later. More blogs coming soon! You might even get a say in who wins matches when I start writing those again.

Your Author,

Kristal McKerrington.

Why I'm So Happy!

(I added the First Show Highlight Here)
Hello all Readers,

This week I just signed 2 new contracts for 'A Different Life Series'. Its seems like everything is finally coming together for me. I have just done my 2nd show on 'Justin TV' the Highlights are below. All links will be at the bottom. Marty is on board and is doing his best to help me every way he can. Life couldn't be better.

I'm finally getting a chance to get a Series out there that people I hope will love. I'm getting my body into the shape I want and if that wasn't enough. I'm starting to see a whole new range of things for me to get involved in. I all ready have my fingers in a few pies, but this gives me a chance to really work outside of the box. To me to work outside the box and outside of Mainstream work is a 'God Send' I hate working in the same grooves as other people.

Even though its going to be hard to get across and break into other audiences, I'm just happy knowing that there is people out there who are watching my show, who are reading my books and who are happy to see Kristal McKerrington making a difference. Below you will be able to see the Highlights from the show, but I wouldn't be pushing this hard if it wasn't for Gina, Tim, Amanda and of course my biggest influence to go nuts with this series Marty.

(Personal Message To Marty Here) 'Thank you for inspiring me, getting that drive back within me and for making me laugh. I'm finding more and more confidence through you then you will ever know. I have to say that you are amazing and I can't wait to shake your hand when we finally meet in person. I hope one day we can consider each other dear friends and that you will enjoy this project/journey we are hopefully going to take together. Huge hugs. Kristal x'


Times are certainly changing and I'm more then proud of the support network we have. I love all of you the readers and fans. Heck you lot made me keep writing after each knock down I got and made me get back up. I would never have gotten with XOXO Publishing if it hadn't been, because of you lot. 


So enjoy the Video's. Say 'Hi' to Marty if you have the chance and maybe I will see you next week on 'Friday's Live Chats With Kristal McKerrington' over on Justin TV. www.justin.tv/kristal_mckerrington 


1st Shows Highlight:-

Watch live video from kristal_mckerrington on Justin.tv

Take care and you can see me Live EVERY Friday at 12pm Est or 5pm UK time.

I'm In Love With XOXO Publishing and Here Is Why

Hello Readers,


I got a Direct Message from a fan the other day who asked me what it was that I loved about XOXO Publishing so much. Now any of you who knows me, knows that I'm always screaming this places name at the top of my lungs. Well today I'm going to tell you why I'm in love with XOXO Publishing.


Gina who owns XOXO Publishing found me back when I was unsigned, struggling to be heard writer. I was just about to give up and bury my dream of ever being an author a year ago. I was also dealing with a lot of FAMILY drama. I was thinking after a long list of rejects, because I was dyslexic and some of them thought I was thinking too far outside of the box, that it was over. I couldn't have been more wrong.


She got her hands on my first real trusted MS, (Manuscript) Freedom Is Earned and she fell in love with it. I was signed soon after. I really didn't know if I should believe it, because I had a few other contracts offered only to have them ripped away from me. I signed it and was more then excited to have my first real piece of work to go into Publication. However it wasn't, because she saved my writing career that I feel in love with XOXO Publishing.


It was the family like atmosphere, the editors, who inspire as well as edit. The cover artist who has blown my mind with her work. The support I got from them to keep me going when I'm not well or a little down. Artists get down and bogged down within things. It happens. I can put my hands up to that. They though taught me grammar that I hadn't learned and stuck by me when I was away in the clouds with my ideas. They should real passion and love for my work as well as my readers.


They were so professional too and they made me feel like an author for the first time in my life. For the FIRST time in my life, I wasn't someone who was trying to break in, they welcomed me in. From there they have nurtured my imagination. Now I have 6 series that I'm working on a possible 7th. I got a group of readers from being with them that I fell in love with nearly instantly.


They listened to me, they screamed my name from the roof tops and they stand by me, no matter what I'm up too. I have more faith within the writing world, now more then ever. I found that at XOXO Publishing. They have become my home and I don't think I will ever go anywhere else.


From there my best work has come to life, 'Shetlands Immortals Series' came to me in their chat room when we were talking about the 'Highlander' series and what my real thoughts were on a certain superhero. Not going to name any names there. From the promotional events I was apart of, other series breathed into life and my dance one was loved for the blood, sweat and many tears I had poured into it.


I was encourage on my path to write 15th pieces within the first few months. I have only been with them since September 2010, but I can tell you that there is no where else that could have done that for me. No where else where I would have gotten the vibe that they craved my work. When I did another promotional event I was met with a true honest fan who loved every piece I had done. He hungered for what I was working on next, trust me if you were a fly on the wall in my office, you would be always screaming at me to stop yapping away and right more.


With that said I will always be an XOXO Publishing girl at heart. I love my writings home and I hope that you will support some of the many authors who are there. They have so much to offer and they are really wonderful people. Please join our Yahoo Loops, Chats, you will fall in Love with us. We are always open minded and always ready to share a story to your liking.

Happy New Year

Hello Readers,


Well this New Year has started off with a really busy Twitter. Awesome friend '@SexWitch' and a few people who seem to believe in me. I can safely say that outside of my 'Writing' and 'Publishing' friends that is really rare!


In this New Year I'm still busting my ass for you. I have made my 'Shetlands Immortals' series longer for you since alot of you are really digging it. I have worked on a couple of new angles for the series including a Superhero like character in the face of 'Yuk'. He agreed last night on Twitter so I'm working on it.


I know your all asking me who Yuk is, well he is this guy who gets a hard time on The Hardy Show and from what I hear is actually a kind of fun guy. Well that is the rumour I haven't ever met him so I wouldn't know. Here is me crossing my fingers that I get the chance to meet him some time during the New Year. I like to meet people like Yuk, because even if they look dumb there is points where real genius comes out of them. I hope to see that with him. No I don't like him as anything other then he is an ok guy. I'm very happy with my LONG term boyfriend Ian! I want to kill that before that even starts.


I admire people who can take a good ribbing and who have a real good sense of humour. I went through a lot of ribbing where I grew up and was even bullied a lot so that is why I'm determined to support them. He earned my respect with the knowledge he showed he had on 'Highway 2 Helms' and he was just as entertaining as Shane Helms on the show in my opinion. Now don't shot me for that! I'm allowed to think that.


So far this year I have had some wonderful feedback from @GnosisArts who has shown me that companies can be interested within people like me. Here is hoping that we can strike up some deal where I can maybe take my career to the next level so that you guys don't need to worry about me. I hope that he can help me organise a book tour at some point too. I hope to visit you lot in NC since I know there is couple of faces who would like to see me there. I hope that I fall in love with the place as everyone says. Infact I might even pop into a little Tattoo and Piercing shop to get some work down! Yes, I still want a couple of things done.


I will be starting my 'Tone and Strength' classes soon and Yoga. I made a HUGE mistake stopping my dance training and here is why, I did a couple of moves the other day. Lets just say I didn't pull them off as well as I would have liked to have. There is things that I have learned about my body, since I took all those 'falls' on concrete, I kind of fucked up a couple of joints more then my Rheumatoid Arthritis did, that RA is just making those joints worse, who would have thought! So I will need to start doing some of those soon again too. The stretches are important in healing my hip and lower back.


Those two injuries haven't healed since I took a keg in my back! Yeah I took a Keg to my back when I worked in a bar! The person who did it never knew how much damage they caused. I guess I deserved it when I said I was a wrestling fan lol. IN Shetland that is like having a plague! I should have just said I was a dancer and left it at that. I will know for next time.


Other then that I will be putting up more footage of me and Debz over the next month. We are having a girls day where we will take about our 'lives' and I will answer your questions. No holds barrage on them. So please email the fan email address if you want me to answer them.


Fan Email:- kristal_mckerrington@hotmail.com


From what I hear you might even get some dance footage of me. I will be heading to TNA this month also. For my birthday. I turn 22 on the 26th yeah I have the weirdest birthday. I hope that it will be an awesome night. I was bummed that I couldn't buy interaction tickets for the event. I kept hearing that most of the ticket places didn't have them, when they did get them they sold out to fast. I was raging. Oh well. I will just scream my lungs out instead.


Listed below is the events I have on for the rest of the month. Encase you fancy turning up to support me. Its great when people do this for me. I don't expected it, I just like to say encase you lot have nothing else on.
