Novel print prices slashed

Pentucket Publishing has slashed print prices for all my novels. My romance novels, Body Check and No Defense, which are coincidentally my longest works, now list for $13.99. Offside, Cracking the Ice, and Bubba Goes for Broke come in at $12.99.

These price reductions were made possible by distribution changes, so the books may not be available at all brick-and-mortar stores, but they remain available from your favorite online distributor or directly from me.

I can provide personalized copies at the following reduced prices. For any combination of books, the cost is $13 for the first, $25 for any two, $36 for three, $46 for four, and $56 for five. That includes standard shipping within the continental United States, autographed and personalized per your request.

Pay by Paypal or check. Send Paypal payment to my hewriter@uscho.com account; mail checks to PO Box 482, Andover, MA 01810-0009.

 

A New Old Title

Bubba Goes for Broke, my comedy and crime caper first published in 2011, has now been reissued under my name. It originally came out under the pen name David Bawdy because it was being released at the same time as my first young adult title, Cracking the Ice. My editor felt strongly that I needed a pen name to avoid confusion between the R-rated Bubba title and Cracking.

But enough time has passed and I’ve written additional Young Adult books as well as those not appropriate for the YA audience and people seem to have figured it all out. If there’s a teenager in sports gear, it’s YA; if there’s a bare-chested hunk on the cover, it’s a romance.

And then there’s Bubba and Tiffany. You may know Tiffany as the star in my quirky short story, “Tiffany Gets her Boobs.”

Tiffany cover

“‘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.”
–USA Today Bestselling Author Kristine Kathyrn Rusch

Well, here come Bubba and Tiffany, the oddest of odd couples.

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.

“David H. Hendrickson tickles my funny bone in the best possible way.” — Annie Reed, author of Pretty Little Horses

Rusch gives “Little Blue Fuzzy” rave review

In her January Recommended Reading List, USA Today Bestselling Author Kristine Kathryn Rusch said of “Little Blue Fuzzy”:

I love this story. I first saw it in a workshop under a different title. The story was funny then, and it’s funny now. David H. Hendrickson is one of my favorite writers. Use this piece as an introduction to his work.

“Little Blue Fuzzy” released

My humorous story “Little Blue Fuzzy” has been released.

LittleBlueFuzzy_withBorder2_Web

When Mickey DeMarco clicks his PC’s mouse on spam that promises to “Unleash the Monster in your pants,” he hardly expects an actual monster to appear.
Inside his boxers.
Hilarity ensues when the two-inch, fuzzy blue monster learns the facts of life  and tries desperately to help Mickey get laid.

Also included is the humorous bonus story “Beloved.” Available in all electronic formats.

Tiffany a long-term bestseller

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).

Trade paperback for Bubba Goes for Broke

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 new short stories available

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.

A bestseller for seven months

“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.”



“Tiffany” is tops in another category

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.
