The Walking Dave Podcast

I’m sick today and the last two recordings I did, the audio was messed up, which meant I had to get off my ass and walk TODAY if I wanted a post up here. So, thank you, accountability! In this episode, I answered Heather’s question on what comic strips I liked and how they shaped […]

The Walking Dave Podcast

Thanks to everyone who commented yesterday on the first post. In today’s episode (recorded last Thursday), I walked and talked about the story I’m working on, Crash. Don’t worry, no spoilers. I also talked about the music I’m listening to while writing Crash and why I think we like the music we like most. I […]

The Walking Dave Podcast

So, a few weeks ago on The Self Publishing Roundtable, we were interviewing author Nathan Lowell and one of the things that came up was the podcast he does when he goes walking each day. And I thought, wow, that is the best idea ever! So, naturally, I stole it. You see, I’ve been NEEDING […]


Before I start this post, first let me say, I like cats … at least in the abstract. They’re cute, they don’t lick you all the time with their stupid germs like certain canines (and don’t even send me a letter about dogs or cats having clean tongues — they lick their butts, how clean […]


(note: This is a rare cross post which I also put up at Collective Inkwell. Sorry for the duplicate posts if you subscribe to both blogs, but since this is a post regarding the future direction of this site, I wanted to post it here, too.) If you’ve looked inside our book Z 2135, out […]

So, it’s that time of year again where people look at all the shit they’re doing, beat up on themselves, and proudly declare, “THIS YEAR WILL BE DIFFERENT!” I’ve never been a big believer in New Year’s resolutions, because let’s face it, I’m used to lying to myself. What’s one more broken promise to lose […]

Lego Marvel Super Heroes

(Note: even if you’re not a gamer, I think you’ll enjoy this post) I’ve played a few great games this year. From Dishonored to Far Cry 3 to Tomb Raider to GTA V, this has been a great year to be a gamer. But none of those games stacks up to my most recent purchase: […]


Tonight we took the training wheels off my son’s bike, and I couldn’t be more nervous. My wife, in attempts to encourage him to learn to ride without the training wheels, told him he could ride faster without training wheels. For my son, who LOVES to run as fast as humanly possible, it was like […]

One day to go until  Z 2135 launches… I’m excited to see how this season will be received by readers. Thoughts going into this season: Will YOU love it? Will haters still keep hating? Just waiting for the first, “the Simpson’s did it” comment. What you will think of a few of the more WTF […]

Z 2135 cover

So, in the last post, I talked about lessons learned from Z 2134. In today’s post, I’m going to talk about some of the ways we approached this season (Z 2135) to make it better. Don’t worry, there’s no spoilers for either Z 2134 or Z 2135 in here. MORE ZOMBIES One of the first […]
