A new electronic edition of Bubba Goes for Broke, published under my pen name David Bawdy, is now available on all sites. This version offers several improvements and corrections.

“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.”
I didn’t originally realize it but “Tiffany Gets Her Boobs” has not only been a Kindle bestseller in the Humor category (free downloads) but also in Short Stories. In fact, she’s been higher on the Short Story list than on Humor.
And based on the sales figures, “Tiffany” has been drawing readers to Bubba Goes for Broke.
“Tiffany Gets Her Boobs” remains on the Kindle Humor bestseller list (in the free download category), coming in at number 33. I’m really pleased at the success of this fun, goofy story.
I just looked at my website’s statistics for September. The number one search item that brought people to my site was one word in the title of my short story “Tiffany Gets Her Boobs.”
Guess which one.
I don’t think I got many bookmarks from that crowd.
“Tiffany Gets Her Boobs” now ranks 13th on the Kindle Free Download bestseller list in the Humor category!
(That’s after only about a week of its price being dropped to free.)
Written under the pen name David Bawdy, “Tiffany” is a fun, short story prequel to Bubba Goes for Broke and has been very well received (including mention in Kris Rusch’s Recommended Reading list).
If I want to stretch the truth, I can now refer to myself as “Bestselling author David Hendrickson.”
I kinda like the sound of that. And who better to stretch the truth than a fiction writer? I am, after all, paid to lie. It’s a job requirement!

“Tiffany Gets Her Boobs” is now free at Amazon, as it has been everywhere else for a while. Check out this fun story as well as the sample chapters from the novel she appears in, Bubba Goes for Broke.
If you’ve been reading this blog for any time at all, you know about my intense admiration for Kristine Kathryn Rusch. I consider her the single best teacher I’ve ever had. The workshops run by her and Dean Wesley Smith have changed my life. She’s also one of my favorite writers. (And also a heckuva person, but that’s getting beyond the point.)
Imagine my euphoria when I read her June Recommended Reading list and found my short story “Tiffany Gets Her Boobs” included! I wouldn’t be surprised if my cries of delight and amazement remained audible all the way from Massachusetts to Oregon.
I wrote “Tiffany” as part of a short story workshop with Kris and soon after, released it electronically under my pen name David Bawdy. Here’s what she had to say:
I thought, based on the title, that I would hate “Tiffany Gets Her Boobs.” But I had to read it: Dave wrote it for the short story workshop. The story’s an off-shoot of Bubba Goes For Broke, his novel, and that was the assignment: write a stand-alone story that works for people who haven’t read the other work. Well, “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.
Music to my ears! You can read it for free here or on the NOOK or at Smashwords. Until Amazon lowers its price, it remains 99 cents for the Kindle.
Hope you like it! And if you do, check out Bubba Goes for Broke.
