Miss Me?

Wow, it has been rather awhile, hasn’t it?

What can I say about 2017. It sucked. A lot. A whole lot.

I’ll spare you the gory details, but let’s just say daily tending to a cat with a persistent medical issue is a drain in every way imaginable. The battle continues on that front, but at least it’s a problem that’s become routine after so many treatments.

In happier news: The Last Look is 100% done and in need of a publisher…as are my books Bestiary and Surviving the Crash.  Alas, my favorite publisher is backed up until well into next year.


I still have a few prospective options in mind for them, so we’ll have to wait and see if anything pans out. I also have a number of new book ideas already piled up that I plan to start work on soon. There might even be a novel in there. We’ll see.

Oh yeah, and I’m suddenly drawing again after about fifteen years. The fact that I don’t seem to be completely terrible at it is quite…surprising to me, to put it mildly. I may even post a few pieces up here if I can get them completed to my satisfaction.

Well, here’s hoping I’m finally back to updating this little corner of the internet on the reg again.

Catch you later. Probably sooner.

Not Dead Yet

Sorry for the long absence, folks. It’s been a very crazy bunch of months. Lots of personal nonsense which I’ll spare you.

As to book stuff, I ended up checking out the Allen County Author Fair. It was nice to see some appreciation for authors in my town, even if it wasn’t exactly the best venue for selling my wares.

As to Wind Chill, it got a very nice review from John Brhel over at Cemetery Dance which you can check out here: http://www.cemeterydance.com/extras/review-wind-chill-by-patrick-rutigliano/ Needless to say, that was pretty awesome.

The end is finally–FINALLY–in sight for The Last Look (about two more long sessions should do it). Never has a book driven me so completely bonkers. Hopefully, the finished product will be worth it for you all.

Finally, the Stoker Award reading list is up: http://www.horror.org/awards/2016readinglist.php If you read a horror book you loved this year, do the author a favor and check on that list for his/her name and drop a vote.

That’s about it for now. I’ll report in again when I’ve given The Last Look it’s last… well, you know.

Wind Chill Faces Shotgun Logic

I woke up to a very nice review of Wind Chill today. Check it out here: https://shotgunlogic.wordpress.com/2016/03/07/wind-chill-by-patrick-rutigliano/

Also, details for signed copies of Wind Chill are in! It took me a little while because I wanted to find the cheapest possible mailing options for you folks so you weren’t getting gouged on postage. Thus, you get two choices:

Sent via media mail: $10.71 (cheaper but will take a little longer)
Sent via flat-rate envelope: $14.57

Just drop me your email address in the comments and I’ll contact you to get any specs regarding how you’d like the book made out/where to send it. I’ll shoot you my PayPal address, and once the money goes through, I’ll send your copy out directly.

Note: Supplies of the book are very limited right now and shipping is limited to the U.S. But if you live overseas, etc., and want one, we’ll see what we can work out.
