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.

Igraine’s Flight Release Party! (and a sale!)

Juli D. Revezzo:

My dear friend Jolene Dawe has a brand new book release: Igraine’s Flight. Do pop by her website (Doo eet!) to check it out!

Her synopsis is as follows:

Igraine is being hunted, and it’s only a matter of time before she’s found. Enslaved and enchanted, trapped in her hellhound form by a powerful member of the Wild Hunt, Igraine has spent countless seasons leashed and trapped. When she manages to slip her master’s tether and disappear into the mortal realm, she knows time is against her. Summer is drawing to a close, and when the Hunt begins to gather to ride, she knows her master will force her to heel. If she can get enough distance between them, maybe he won’t have time to come seeking her. If she runs fast enough, far enough, maybe she’ll manage to break free.

Dog rescue and rehabilitation is hard, harrowing, often heartbreaking work, but there’s no denying that Marion is good at what she does. Her reputation for being able to help the hopeless cases is widely known throughout her county, so it’s no surprise when a local vet calls her in to help with the latest rescue. The large dog is unlike any breed Marion’s seen, but that doesn’t stop her from opening her home — and her heart — to the dog in need. Especially once her own pack readily accepts the creature.

Nothing could have prepared Marion for how her life was about to change. . .

. . . or for the naked woman suddenly in her shower.

Together, Marion and Igraine await the growing dark, counting off the days until Yule arrives, when the Wild Hunt runs free, and not even the power of Marion’s claim can keep Igraine safe. Will their commitment to one another be enough to keep Igraine free, or will she be forced to back onto the leash? Will they have found hope within each other only to lose everything?

See Jolene’s site for more.

My new novella Igraine’s Flight is now out for Kindle! I’d like to thank Juli D. Revezzo once again (probably not for the last time) for her hard, quick work on the cover design (and for holding my hand through not a small number of pre-publication panics and angst!) Also, a huge, HUGE thank you to everyone who supported this project from the very beginning.
