Tiffany Goes for Broke, the prequel to Bubba Goes for Broke written under the pen name David Bawdy, has now reached twenty months(!) on Kindle Bestseller lists. It still ranks in the mid-fifties in both the Short Story and the Fiction- Humor categories (free downloads).
Bubba Goes for Broke, my sex comedy/crime caper published under the pen name David Bawdy, is now available in trade paperback. Go to Amazon or contact me at dave dot hendrickson at gmail dot com for a personalized copy.
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.”
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.
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!

Pentucket Publishing has just released my crime caper novel, Bubba Goes for Broke, written under the pen name David Bawdy. It’s available in all electronic formats; a trade paperback will be released in the summer.
Since it’s an R-rated novel — you might call it bawdy – I felt compelled to use a pen name to distinguish this book from my forthcoming Young Adult novel, Cracking the Ice.
Sample the first two chapters of Bubba Goes for Broke. If you don’t laugh, check your pulse.
If a dim-witted, sex-crazed crook falls in love, does he get any dumber? You can bet a boob-jobbed Hooters waitress he does. And when she wants to become a televangelist with a little something extra, guess who’s going to pay? Meet Bubba Winslow.
Available for $4.99 in all electronic formats on Kindle, NOOK, Smashwords, Sony, Apple, Kobo, and many others.
(Cover by Renee Barratt at The Cover Counts.)
Early reader reactions:
“I was laughing so hard, I could hardly see straight.”
“Madcap and raunchy!”
“A hilarious idiot Dortmunder.”
I’m really looking forward to WestSide Books publishing my Young Adult novel Cracking the Ice in June. But I’ll be electronically publishing another novel, Bubba Goes for Broke, through Pentucket Publishing in the next couple weeks. A paper version will follow in a few months.
To avoid confusion, I’m using the pseudonym David H. Bawdy for Bubba Goes for Broke. It’s a bawdy novel (hence the choice of pseudonym), loaded with irreverent and outrageous humor. I’ve been told it’s a very funny book, but it’s not appropriate for Cracking the Ice‘s Young Adult audience.
So I’ll be keeping a pretty high wall between these two novels. Most of the news about the Bubba novel will appear at pentucketpublishing.com and bawdywriter.com. However, both of those websites are still under development, so I’ll be mentioning it a bit here in this space.
Have a look at the outstanding cover developed by Renee Barratt at The Cover Counts. I love it, don’t you?
