Three new stories available

Three humorous David H. Hendrickson short stories 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’ 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” a Kindle Humor bestseller!

David Bawdy’s hilarious short story “Tiffany Gets Her Boobs” is now 13th on the Kindle Free Download bestseller list in the Humor category! 

Here are some reviews:

I was prepared for a funny story from Bawdy, but not one with such a smart girl (based on the title). By the end of the story, I found myself actually admiring Tiffany’s spunk, her intelligence, and seriously out-of-the box thinking. I’m looking forward to buying his “Bubba Goes for Broke” novel set in the same universe. Should be a fun read.

and…

Highly recommended. 😀 Couldn’t stop laughing. Don’t be deceived by the title. The story isn’t just outrageously funny, it’s smart.

and…

I wasn’t going to read this one just because of the title – but you shouldn’t judge a book by the cover and besides, a female co-worker told me it was a good short story and had a few laughs.

Well, she was right – this was actually pretty funny and a good 10 minute or so read during my lunch break. Without having a spoiler, there is no sex involved, I did laugh out loud a few times (especially at some of the potential names of the business), and this marketing plan that worked for the main character is so simple and like P.T. Barnum I could see it working on each college campus for one person.

If you are looking for a quick and humorous read during your lunch break or waiting for the carpool line, give this one a shot!

Introducing “Tiffany Gets Her Boobs”

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 David Bawdy’s novel Bubba Goes for Broke, is now available on Amazon and Smashwords as well as on the author’s 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.

Enjoy!

“For sheer outrageousness, few writers beat Dave’s black humor and quirky charm.”
