Three humorous short stories of mine are now available in all the leading e-book formats. They are each available as lead titles with the other two included as bonus stories.
Can Devin Patrick O’Donnell spend St. Patrick’s Day barhopping with a leprechaun without so much as touching a drop of the spirits? The leprechaun has offered a pot of gold. How hard can it be?
At a small town casino in Oregon, Icepick Louie tells all the bumpkins how minor league they are. He bets twenty large they can’t name a thing that can top its counterpart back in Boston. Since people who accept challenges from Icepick Louie often wind up with busted kneecaps, he can barely control his laughter when a scrawny geek with thick glasses speaks up and proposes Flo’s clam chowder.
Olivia loves her books. They fill every shelf, are stacked high on every floor, and have taken over every room. Her boyfriend Charlie can hardly see the TV. And oh yeah, Olivia would rather read than talk to him. What’s Charlie to do? Give her an ultimatum? She can pick him or the books? Probably not a good idea.
“Tiffany Gets Her Boobs” (written under my pen name David Bawdy) has now spent seven months on the Kindle Humor and Short Story bestseller lists (free download category). This prequel to my novel Bubba Goes for Broke earned a great endorsement from USA Today bestselling author Kristine Kathyrn Rusch:
” ‘Tiffany’ works beautifully, and by the end of the story, I had fallen in love with this savvy, determined, and somewhat crazy woman. Everyone who has read this story remembers it and likes it. You will too.”
Hendu’s Story: From Dream To Reality has been released by Pentucket Publishing in all major ebook formats. It’s one of the most personal things I’ve ever written and one I’m so very proud of.
How did the kid who was always falling down achieve his dreams of playing college hockey? How did he finish as co-captain on a team that enjoyed the best season in the program’s history?
This cult classic tells it all: part memoir, part roadmap of how to achieve a dream, and part story of a father’s love for his son.
Hendu’s Story follows the little kid with the big heart through all the tough decisions. Go to the team that always wins or the one with the best coach? Play summer hockey? Leave home for boarding school? Play it safe or roll the dice during the gut-wreching college selection process?
Hendu’s Story will make you laugh, make you think, and just maybe make you cry.
Although it’s available in six individual parts, the full collection offers the best value and represents the intended reading experience.
Part I: Beginnings
Part II: Youth Hockey
Part III: Summer Hockey
Part IV: High School
Part V: College Selection
Part VI: College
