S.G. Rogers introduces us to Meet Mr. & Mrs. Odin a/k/a The Bickersons

When S.G. Rogers released her latest, Dani & the Immortals, I knew I had to come invite her to share a little about the book. So for your reading pleasure, I’m pleased to present her outtake from the novel….

Meet Mr. & Mrs. Odin a/k/a The Bickersons

Dani & The Immortals (Fantasy romance) by S.G. RogersYou’ve heard of outtakes and cut scenes from the movies? If you sat through the credits of The Avengers, for example, you were rewarded by some special footage. The following is a bonus scene which falls somewhere in between Act I and Act II of Dani & the Immortals. No waiting, and the popcorn is optional. ~ S.G. Rogers


Dr. Sigmund peered at the couple on the couch before him. “Mr. and Mrs. Odin, after several days of intense therapy—”

“Doctor, the name is Friday,” the Nordic blonde interrupted. “It’s important to me to have my own identity.”

A muscle quivered in Odin’s jaw but he said nothing.

The doctor nodded. “All right, Friday. The way I see it, we have some enormous challenges to overcome in your marriage.”

Friday snorted and pointed at her husband. “For one thing, he doesn’t trust me.”

Odin bristled. “Adultery in a wife is never a desirable quality.”

“You’re one to talk!” she exclaimed. “They don’t call you The Wanderer for nothing, Odin. Thor is only your most visible indiscretion.”

Odin folded his well-muscled arms across his massive chest and stared straight ahead.

“To save your marriage, we must move past this blame game,” Dr. Sigmund said.

“I’ve been cooped up on Fensalir practically forever, thanks to him,” Friday said, flicking a glance at Odin. “I’d say our relationship has been shot to Helheim and back.”

“I understand that. Mr. Odin, I propose you give your wife a little freedom.”

“A lot of freedom and a lot of gold,” Friday said. “It’s my turn to visit to Midgard. I want to do some shopping.”

“Be sure to buy yourself another necklace,” Odin said through clenched teeth. “The last one went inexplicably missing.”

Friday gasped in outrage. “How dare you throw that in my face! Go hang yourself on Yggdrasil!”

The two immortals jumped to their feet and began to bicker. As the volume increased, the doctor rose from his chair, strode from the room, and slammed the door behind him. Odin and Friday exchanged a guilty glance.

“I guess we’re having our own personal Ragnarök,” she said.

Odin sighed. “Let’s hope it’s not the end of the world for our marriage.”


Can Odin and Frigga save their relationship? Find out in Dani & the Immortals!


When Dani was a teen, she had it all; a starring role in her own television series, a wonderful family, and her health. A few years later, everything has changed for the worse—and her time is running short. All she wants to do before she dies is to fall in love, but when she’s kidnapped and taken to Asgard of Norse mythology, she becomes enmeshed in a quarrel between immortals. Prince Rein lends a hand in her quest to return home, and she begins to think the handsome elf has captured her heart. After a magical artifact goes missing, however, he may be forced to marry another woman to avert a diplomatic catastrophe. To find the artifact and save the prince, Dani must undertake a dangerous quest involving ogres, dark fairies, and underworld criminals. Ultimately, however, she’ll have to defy Odin himself.

J.J. (James) Dibenedetto, Dream Wedding Launch

Today I am pleased to once again welcome my friend and fellow paranormal author J.J. (James) Dibenedetto to my little cyber home. He’s wrapping up his popular new adult paranormal series…. with none other than a wedding and so I invited him here to tell you all about it. Take it away, James!

Dream Wedding Launch


J.J. (James) Dibenedetto

After nearly a million words written, it’s time to conclude the Dream Series. Over nine books, we’ve followed Sara from a shy college student to a wife, mother and chief-of-staff at her hospital. And we’ve seen her wrestle with her supernatural gift – the ability to step into other people’s dreams.

Sara’s faced almost every kind of challenge, but in the upcoming book ten of the Dream Series, DREAM WEDDING, she’s up against something every parent has to cope with: watching her children become adults and hoping she’s prepared them for everything the world can throw at them.

Dream Wedding Invite - Front Dream Wedding Invite back

It ought to be a joyful time for Dr. Sara Alderson. Her daughter, Lizzie, is about to graduate college, and marry her longtime boyfriend. But the family’s happiness is shattered when a drunk driver seriously injures her teenage son in a hit-and-run accident.

Now, instead of planning her daughter’s wedding, Sara must fight to save her son’s life. And when she discovers who the drunk driver was – someone she thought was a colleague and a friend – she has to fight her desire for revenge. Because Sara knows she has the power to visit the driver’s dreams, and in those dreams, she holds the power of life and death.
