Life is a journey that all must travel, often alone, sometimes with others.  It is a road filled with the deepest of sorrows and the highest of joys, but mostly the mundane.  This anthology is about my travels but I believe they reflect what many have experienced.

From the first to the very last the collection is a rollercoaster of emotions.  Some, I hope will make you laugh so hard you will cry, while others may cause your heart to ache. Within each story is a little piece of myself, a small window into my world. They are short trips which I invite you to share with me… a journey into my life and perhaps into your own.

Announcememt From Geonn Cannon
The long wait is over! :D Riley Parra Season 2 is ready to go live! The first story has gone live, and a season-pass for the complete ten-story series will be available as soon as possible. There were technical difficulties (my fault!) but it'll be rectified very soon. ~fingers crossed~ Today was the release of 2x01, The Heavenly Host. New stories will be released every Wednesday between now and November 10.

I'm doing it a little differently than I did with the first group of stories, firstly the fact that I'm posting them once a week instead of once per month. The other change is a little bigger. Considering the amount of time it takes to write/edit/prepare all these stories. For an entire season, it's basically the same amount of time it takes me to put together a novel for publication. Since I can't/don't want to make people wait for a published version, I figured the easiest way would be to sell the stories individually. That way it'll be feasible to

They're $1.49 each, or for the next four weeks, you can get the entire second season for $10. That's a savings of $4.90 in the long run.

I hope everyone enjoys!

Riley Parra - Season 2
Riley Parra has passed the trial she was put through by the angels, but she didn't emerge unscathed. Now accepted as the champion for good, she's left on her own to battle the demons threatening to destroy her city in a war jumpstarted by her own actions.

Riley returns from her sabbatical ready to get back to work, bolstered by the return of her girlfriend Gillian Hunt. Reuniting with her partner and guardian angel, Caitlin Priest, Riley soon finds herself challenged by a serial killer who seems to strike without rhyme or reason. In addition Riley must contend with the return of an old friend, the reappearance of an old enemy, and attempt to discover the identity of evil's champion. To survive she'll have to risk losing her closest friends, revealing the battle between good and evil, and perhaps even her own sanity.

She meets a feisty young village girl —an orphan storyteller with a heart of gold and the courage to stand up to her. The one person in all of Greece who will surely steal the Conqueror's heart and turn her world upside down is the one who will change her utterly and completely.

Gabrielle's life has never been easy. She watched helplessly as her family's livelihood was stolen by raiders and her father disappeared without a trace. After narrowly escaping slavers who took her friends, she and her sister then watched their mother slowly waste away and die. But little did they know the worst was yet to come. One day, their village was visited by the dreaded Conqueror and nothing could prepare them for the changes to come.
