We celebrated Halloween with…sushi. Conveyer belt sushi, where the selections travel around the restaurant and you grab small plates as something catches your eye. You can also order from the digital menu and a second conveyer belt will transport it right to your table. We had a place like this in Tampa, but there was no variety on the belt and, it seemed, little turnover. (You could order off the menu and have a server bring it to you, primitive-style, but that sort of defeated the purpose.) The Atlanta one has a large variety of stuff traveling on the conveyer belt and the sushi is quite good.
Halloween continued November 1st with the launch party for the Atlanta branch of the Horror Writers Association. We’ve had a few monthly meetings, but this was an event designed to attract potential new members. I was on a panel about Self Publishing vs. Traditional Publishing, though as a hybrid author I don’t have an obnoxious stance for either side.
Today I wrote my story for the next newsletter, “Corky & Sporky.” I’m proud to say that it is one of the dumbest things you will ever read.
