Hello all & Brandy'z,

            My name is Kristal McKerrington and I'm so honoured that Brandy'z let me run wild on her blog for the day. I have so much news to share, but before I do I will give you a little information about me for all of you, who don't know me.

            Kristal McKerrington is a twenty two year old writer from Scotland, UK. She has a love for Scotland and for Vikings. Kristal has only recently started to publish with XOXO Publishing, she lives with her boyfriend in the heart of Glasgow. Kristal also has a love for going out with her boyfriend on their motorbike and spending long hours soaking in her bath tub writing her stories.

            All right lets to my news I'm sharing with you today.  I now run my Live Chats With Kristal McKerrington over on Justin TV every Friday at 12pm Est or 5pm UK.  For all of you, who would like to stop by to catch with me and sometimes I have guests. The books are open for more.    www.justin.tv/kristal_mckerrington

            I'm blogging on Sweet and Sexy Diva blog now every 3rd Tuesday there too.  You will hear my latest news and I even talk about the 'MUST SEE' books in my mind on there too. I will have a repeat author spotlighting there called L. Anne Carrington, who is one of the very few Wrestling Fictional Authors that is our there.  http://sweetnsexydivas.blogspot.com/

            I currently have a press release out right now too, which is doing well from what I hear. It was done by the amazing Gnosis Arts out of New York and I'm proud to introduce you to the Press Release that talks about my NEW release that has just started to be released.  Check it out here for all the gossip. http://www.pressreleasesonline.net/2011/02/new-book-genre-groundbreaking-book.html

            So far I have a very productive month with my book releases. I have released 'Shetlands Immortals: Against My First Love', 'The Immortal Chief's Christmas With King Arthur' and 'A Different Life: A Valentines Day Save'.  We are just about to release the book before the Valentines Day special, which is called 'A Different Life: Three Lane Highway' as well. So I have placed the blurbs below of my different works so you can get your teeth sunk in and get ready for them. All the buy links are below also.

            Before I hand you over to the blog I want to remind everyone that I'm going to be at Night Owl's Chat on the 8th of March and I have a Radio interview with Jo-Anne Vandermeulen on the 14th of March over on her Blog Talk Radio Site. The link to the Radio Station is below. I will keep everyone up to date on the time on my Twitter Account, which you can follow on www.twitter.com/K_mcKerrington  and the radio Station link is:- http://www.blogtalkradio.com/prempromotions

Shetlands Immortals: Against My First Love

            'Carla McBain was just an ordinary sixteen year old girl, until one late night in October; Carla was murdered in her dorm room. Carla was scared until Oscar and Daryl meet her on her return to the Islands, to meet her parents.  After confronting her, they realise that she is a new Immortal.

After staging her death, the pair convinces Carla to return to their Holy Ground, where they tell her everything that they know. They train her until the day comes that the Islanders grew suspicious of her presence there within the Old Viking Temple.

Deciding it’s safer to leave, they head out into the night in search of someone else who can tell them the truth about why they are Immortals. What will they find?

Can Oscar and Daryl survive outside of the Temple with a young Immortal?

How did they end up Immortal and why are they protecting her?

What happens when she meets her first love who is responsible for her being Immortal in the first place?'

            Immortal Chief's Christmas With King Arthur

            'The Immortal Chief tells the tale of his Christmas with King Arthur. How he meets Krystal-Marie, and saves King Arthur from becoming and immortal too young!  What will happen between the two of these young Immortals who have walked into the unknown together?'

            A Different Life: A Valentines Day Save
            'From the very start Layla has been confused with her ideals, but this Valentines Day the gloves are pulled off as the most the original match ever seen in WWIC's History is revealed and the groups tested to their limits.  An emotional Layla has to deal with her Twin being with her boyfriend and when everyone thought that Valentines Day was lost, can A Valentines Day party save it or will it just make things worse? Are you ready to see more behind the scenes of Layla's life, learn more about Marie, take on the brothers of heart breaking and self destruction and a boyfriend that should come with a warning?'

            I hope you have enjoyed having me here today and I hope that Brandy'z will have me back soon, because I can promise you that I will have loads of Ebooks coming out really soon. So stay safe and enjoy the books. Huge hugs to all of you.
