We’re excited to announce that James Veitch has signed a deal with Quadrille for his first comedy non-fiction book, Dot Con!
Due for publication in summer 2015, Dot Con is inspired by James’s sell out Edinburgh Fringe Festival comedy show “The Fundamental Interconnectedness of Everyone with an Internet Connection”
Suspicious emails: un-claimed insurance bonds, diamond-encrusted safety deposit boxes, close friends marooned in a foreign country. They pop-up in our inbox and standard procedure is to delete on sight. But what happens when you reply?
James Veitch has spent the past year responding to as many scam emails as he can. Packed full of Nigerian princes, can’t miss investment opportunities and eligible Russian brides, the correspondence leads to surprising, bizarre and usually hilarious results…
Here’s just a little snapshot of what the press have to say about James;
“Veitch is ahead of the curve” The Guardian
“Ingenious .. one to watch” The Independent
“A nerdy, anarchic, twisted mind,” Fringe Review
“Topically brilliant comedy. Tears-down-the-face funny” Sunday Herald
“A wicked sense of humor. I laughed my ass off” The New York Times
We can’t wait to see what James has in store for us next!
