Knock, knock...waiting quietly, listening intently...Sabina has left the building I am free to party like it's 1999! Prince made that seem like such a fabulous date, and then when it finally was just another day. Anyway, I am here to take full control of this site for today, 100% control, Sabina may regret giving me this much control!

So, who am I? I am Penelope Anne Bartotto, author, editor, and generally insane woman who has been allowed to run rampant around the universe since 1997. My home is The Library at the END of the Universe, where I share reviews, my writing and so much more.
Currently the only book you can find me in is the anthology: Paranormal Anthology with a Twist. Previously I dedicated over a decade of my writing career to journalism and nonfiction. I spent a number of years writing articles that were featured in America Online and a variety of their forums. Those were the days.

Release Day Review: The Hunt by Brad Stevens

Today it is release day fro Brad Stevens book; The Hunt. I LOVED reading this one - read my review and find out why!
Remember to swing by Brad's FB party, loads of prizes and fun!

Mara Gorki lives in London in the year 2068. But it is a very different UK from what we know it today. Everything is controlled by men. Women have no right to vote, to drive. They’re not allowed to own their own businesses, homosexuality is banned and every time a woman over 18 steps outside a door, she has to wear the uniform; tights, skirt, blouse and jacket. If she should dare to go outside without wearing the uniform, the penalty is… severe.

Release Day Review: Prime Deception by Carys Jones

When a young woman kills herself, it seems like suicide and is ruled that way by the police. Another young life wasted, a tragedy. A whole family is being torn apart, a town is grieving, and the Deputy Prime Minister feels like his heart is torn out from his chest and the light has gone from his world.

See, the young woman who allegedly committed suicide was the Deputy’s mistress. All very hush, hush, of course. But not everything is what it seems like.

When Lorna’s twin sister; Laurie shows up at Downing Street as an intern as her sister before her, all hell breaks loose, and the Deputy Prime Minister is just about to lose his mind. But Laurie is there with a secret agenda; she doesn’t believe that her sister killed herself. She would never do that. Laurie wants to dig out the truth, even if she has to team up with the man her sister slept with and just might be her killer.

ARV-3 Kickstarter Film Blitz for Cameo Renae

Title: ARV-3
Author: Cameo Renae
Genre: YA Post-Apocalyptic/Dystopian
Release Date: November 26th 2013
Publisher: CHBB
Cover Design: Regina Wamba at Mae I Design Photography
Blitz Host: Lady Amber's Tours
Blurb: June 6, 2014: The beginning of the end. The Apocalypse. A nuclear fallout wiped out every living thing on the planet, except for a few thousand of us who took shelter in underground bunkers across the globe. Now, after thirteen long years, we were finally able to return to the topside to begin to rebuild. We thought we were alone. We were never more wrong. Before the fallout, scientists had worked on creating an anti-radiation vaccine (ARV). The first two attempts failed, but despite the incomplete tests and results, the government approved and distributed the third serum to the masses in an effort to aid those who had no shelter. It worked, keeping those who remained on the topside alive, but it also altered and mutated them. This new and infectious threat had completely outnumbered us. Now, we not only had to rebuild our planet. We would have to fight for it.
My name is Abigail Park. I’m seventeen, and this is my story.

Blog Tour: Guest Post & Giveaway Grimm Consequences by Kate SeRine


Top Five Reasons to Fall in Love with Nate Grimm

I love all my characters—even the villains in all their wickedness. But I have to say, Nate Grimm, the protagonist in my upcoming release, Grimm Consequences, will always hold a special place in my heart. I think part of the reason I adore Nate is because he was an unexpected hero, meaning, I hadn’t originally intended for him to be my romantic lead in RED (Transplanted Tales #1). But the moment I wrote his description, I knew he was the one for Tess “Red” Little. And although I think there are many reasons why I fell for Nate while writing his and Tess’s love story, here are the top five reasons why I think readers just might fall in love with him, too:


Review: Grimm Consequences (Transplanted Tales #1,5) by Kate SeRine


Grimm Consequences takes place a couple of months after Red, Nate is happy with Tess, and wants to bury the past. Unfortunately, even our darkest secrets will come forth at some point. Nate knew he did something unforgiveable when he took Sebille’s life. But he didn’t have a choice; it was either Red or her, and damn it if he would lose Red now that he finally was in her life again.

Review: Red (Transplanted Tales #1) by Kate SeRine

First off… I’m a fairytale lover. I grew up in Denmark and Sweden, so that meant getting tales of the Norse Gods, the Brother Grimm’s and H.C Andersen in from childhood. I can get lost into the amazing worlds, doesn’t matter how many times I’ve read Little Red Riding Hood, The Ugly Duckling… I disappear.

But what happens AFTER the Happily Ever After? What if a spell from a Fairy Godmother went terrible wrong, and somehow the characters from old stories suddenly appears into OUR world? How will they react? Will they be able to adapt?

But all magic comes with a price: no sex or she'll revert back to her old body. Kiera accepts the cost. It's not like she has men lined up at her door. Obeying this one tiny rule isn't difficult at all—until the night she meets Cain, a were-tiger and a soldier with the Eternal Forces.

When a slew of unexplained murders forces Kiera and Cain together, they'll have to face the horrors of their pasts. Will Kiera realize she is worth more than her outward appearance? Or will she make the wrong the choice and lose everything—including her life?

Release Day: Craving Red by Rosalind Scarlett

“The primal wolf in him craved her as he had craved nothing before. She would give up the only life she had ever known for him.”

It is the night of the snow moon. Sweden, 1790. 

Maiden Kaia is days away from being married to the handsome Leif when her mother suddenly becomes gravely ill. Desperate to save his wife, her father sends his only daughter to the village on his horse to obtain help for her beloved mother. 
But Kaia will not be returning home.
Out on the path, wolves emerge from the trees, surrounding her and spooking her horse. Fainting in sheer terror, the next thing Kaia knows, she is being dragged through the snow back to their lair. Shivering cold, half naked and bound, she startles awakes to the feel of warm breath blowing out over her body. 
The following day, she realises she sees no wolves around, but does see several other women there. Noticing they are all pregnant, Kaia fears her fate. Her fears are validated when one of them complacently informs her that her initiation is imminent. The moment her scent is ripe, she is to be mated by all males of the pack.
