A Halloween Treat Waiting on the 31st

Ah, October is in full swing now. The mornings are getting properly chilly and the leaves are falling to make crunchy, multicolored blankets of the sidewalks. Halloween will be on us in no time, and since sending candy to everyone through the mail would be terribly impractical, I’m going to be making one of my novellas (The Untimely Deaths of Daryl Handy) free for download on the 31st. I’ll post a sales link here once the sale goes into effect. Hopefully, everything will process when it’s supposed to.

I’m also thinking of retiring the informative articles as a weekly feature since new topics are getting increasingly difficult to come by. However, I do want to replace them with something else I can keep up from week to week. This may end up being horror movie/book reviews, advice, guest blogs, or any combination thereof. So, a whatever-I-feel-like day, if you will.

In other news, Wind Chill is waiting to be raked over the coals by my primary beta-reader, and I’m hunting for some reputable publishers that might be interested in novellas (or a short novel). Here’s hoping I find a few before the jack-o’-lanterns are lit.


About prutigli

Patrick Rutigliano grew up on a steady diet of comic books and horror movies. Making his first sale to Permuted press in 2007, he has since placed stories with several publications in addition to his first collection, Black Corners of a Blood-Red Room. The Untimely Deaths of Daryl Handy is his first independent release. During his off time, Patrick can usually be found attempting to recreate foreign cuisine, sacrificing cardboard to his cats, and having spirited debates with his wife over the failings of Disney villains.
