March 7, 2011 (Cary, NC) – Cris Cohen of Cary, a humor writer and author of the blog Nothing In Particular, has hired Blueplate PR of Raleigh to help him increase readership for his blog and to promote his upcoming book.
A California native who moved to Cary in 2008, Cohen published a weekly humor column in numerous newspapers on the West Coast. Since his move to North Carolina, he’s been writing Nothing In Particular, a blog about anything and everything, always expressed with Cohen’s wry wit.
Now Cohen is planning to publish a collection of columns, old and new, in a book entitled Staying Crazy To Keep From Going Insane. Proceeds from which will be donated to the Miracle League of the Triangle, a baseball league for kids with special needs.
“Cris is without doubt one of the best humor writers I’ve ever read,” said Kim Weiss, principal of Blueplate PR. “He’s the Dave Barry of the Triangle. When people discover Nothing In Particular, they’re hooked. And the book will be a no-brainer after that. His columns are laugh-out-loud funny. The fact that he’s willing to donate proceeds to the Miracle League just makes it that much more appealing. I’m delighted to be involved.”
