Confession: I Love My Own Stories.

In case you don't know, I have a second blogspot site called Henry's Stories. For over a year now, I've been putting my stories out on that site, serialized in chunks.  There are short stories, middle-sized ones, and novels.  I'm currently in the middle of the second novel, Extreme Makeover which starts at this page. Of course, you could buy it on Amazon like all my other books, but here it's free, if you don't mind reading it a chapter at a time.

The thing is...I'm getting engrossed in the story myself.  I wrote it.  I've been through the text over a dozen times, or more.  Preparing it for the serialization, I read through it again twice. And yet, each MWF as the next chapter comes out and it shows up in my RSS reader, I pause and read the chapter, getting caught up in the story all over again.

Now, marketing is supposed to be telling everyone how great your own stuff is, but I've never been able to do that properly.  I was raised to be modest and avoid bragging.  It's a hard process to get around.  I'll just say it.  I've got some great stories here.  I'd prefer you go buy them all, but if you want free, I can handle that too.
