Still sick

Still feeling sick, so I'm going to rest up and return to The Walking Dave on Monday. I feel like I should've rested yesterday rather than gone out walking because when it came time to do the Author Hangout last night, I was sick, grouchy, and my back hurt (from my crappy bed), so I...

The Walking Dave Podcast Episode 2

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... Continue Reading →

The Walking Dave Podcast 1

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... Continue Reading →

Top 10 Ways My Cat is an Asshole

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...

So, yeah, I’m going to do this thing

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... Continue Reading →

Learning to Let Go

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... Continue Reading →

Z 2135 and Talking About Our Books

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... Continue Reading →

Z 2135: Making a Better Story

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... Continue Reading →

Changing Things Up

This blog has become something of an ignored bastard of late. The problem with blogging for me has always been having too many different things to write about, but they're all over the place topic-wise. Going back to 1999, I've drawn and published comics, and written about the following: comics, writing, TV, movies, parenting, weight... Continue Reading →

What Song Should I Dance To?

Or, rather, make an ass out of myself to? Here's the deal. Once WhiteSpace: Season One gets 100 verified reviews (meaning you bought it and left a review), I'm going to dance to one of these songs. And seeing that I'm a big fat guy better suited for writing than anything involving actual movement or... Continue Reading →

When Trailers Go Too Far

I love trailers! Whether they be movie, TV, or video game trailers, I love watching them... except when they go too far. A good trailer teases you, gets you excited for the upcoming movie, show, or game, and creates a sense of curiosity, anticipation, and gets in your head. In my next post, I'm going...
