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.
Additionally, a trade paperback will be released before the end of the month. This will mark the first appearance of the title in a paper edition.
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
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.
“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.
Tiffany knows that only one thing separates her from stardom — a boob job. Who’ll pay for it? She’s determined to find out.
This humorous short story, starring the character from my novel Bubba Goes for Broke, is now available on Amazon and Smashwords as well as right here on the Free Fiction page. It precedes the action in the novel, so it’s a perfect introduction if you’re waffling on Bubba.
It’s also free everywhere but on Amazon (and I’m hoping their bots will notice that and make it free there, too).
Oh, and by the way, it’s the short story that has been released, not Tiffany’s boobs.
I’ve added a Free Fiction Page that I intend to update regularly with short stories. (I’ll provide a schedule soon.)
The debut story is “Tiffany Gets Her Boobs,” a precursor to my Bubba Goes for Broke novel, published under the pen name David Bawdy. Click on the page at the top of the screen or here.
