Two entrepreneurs from California sponsor Cris Cohen’s new book.
March 10, 2011 (Cary, NC) – When humor writer/blogger Cris Cohen of Cary, NC, decided to publish a book entitled Staying Crazy To Keep From Going Insane, he announced that he would donate the proceeds from its sales to the Miracle League of the Triangle, a baseball league for kids with special needs. He also announced that he was looking for sponsors to help defray the costs of self-publishing.
This week, two entrepreneurs from Cohen’s home state – California – stepped up to the plate. Laura Little of Live A Little More Enterprises in San Luis Obispo, CA, and Gina Gotsill, a writer, editor and voice-over talent with Vocal Variety in the San Francisco Bay area have agreed to be sponsors of Staying Crazy To Keep From Going Insane.
Since moving to North Carolina in 2008, Cohen has been writing his Nothing In Particular blog at criscohen.typepad.com. Before the move, he lived in California for most of his life and wrote a humor column that was published regularly in several newspapers. His upcoming book will be a collection of columns from his California career, as well as some new pieces.
Gina Gotsill was a regular reader of Cohen’s humor column when it ran in California. “Cris has been keeping us in stiches for years,” she said. “I’m excited about having a book to refer to when we need some comic relief. And it feels great to support Miracle League of the Triangle. It’s such a positive, fun organization and the kids get so much out of it.”
After reading several chapters of the book-in-progress, Laura Little commented, “In his upcoming book, Cris promises to entertain and delight his readers with his offbeat sense of humor prompted by the predicaments of daily life. He crafts a love affair between pomp and circumstance with his witticisms. If you’re overdue for a good belly laugh, don’t miss this book!”
Staying Crazy To Keep From Going Insane will be published in September in time for the opening of the Miracle League’s fall season. For more information, visit http://stayingcrazy.com.
