Polishing and Rewriting

I spent the last week examining the short stories I want to use for Wind Chill, and it’s been quite an interesting experience. Several of the stories have been on various short lists but never quite squeaked their way in. A few years later, with my style being more refined after lots of beta-reads, I can finally see the warts that need removal. It’s always a humbling thing to see one’s mistakes and empowering to know how much progress has been made since. I’m very excited to get this book to you all.

I’m also going to have my own author page up on Crystal Lake Publishing’s website this week!


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.

    Isn’t it great when you look back and see how much you’ve improved? Not as much fun seeing the mistakes, of course, but that’s the price of improvement I guess.
