Celebrating Reed Farrel Coleman & INNOCENT MONSTER

Since Reed Farrel Coleman’s latest Moe Prager mystery, Innocent Monster, is coming out next week from Tyrus Books, I was asked to create a slideshow to help celebrate the launch. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Reed or his books, below is a quick intro.

I could’ve mentioned that Reed is an award-winning novelist, poet and professor of writing at Hofstra University, but I thought I’d have some fun. (You can get the real story on his website.) What I took away from meeting him at this year’s L.A. Times Festival of Books is that he’s not only a gracious, talented writer but a man with a great sense of humor.

Hope you enjoy the show.

Most importantly…

    Jen stole my line! But, that was hysterical! And, you got our dear friend Kaye Barley in that slideshow, too. [she the owner of that thigh move ;-)].

    Does RC know he’s in this? And that he’s comes off muy macho with the Cole-man? This was great, Elyse.

    You are simply brilliant, Elyse. No joke. This is classic.

    Jen—Thanks so much! I love it when you encourage my inappropriateness.

    le0pard13—Yeah, Kaye was getting frisky there. And no, Crais doesn’t know. I get away with more if I don’t tell him everything.

    Sara—Oh, wow, thank you. I’m just glad Reed hasn’t sent me a cease-and-desist letter or threatened a defamation suit.

    Reader#9—Always happy to make you laugh!

    Yes, this was a delightful way to ease into my Saturday morning, PCN. {“Old Spice”, heh heh.} With an introduction like that, how can I not put Innocent Monster straight onto The List.
