12 September – New Website Name

This isn’t very exciting, but we thought we’d better tell you. After lots of fiddling around, this website is now www.quitefunnyguy.com (although www.iamthe.website will still work for the next 18 months, at least, if you prefer to type that into your browser). This is so it matches Mr Mathews’ username on Twitter and clearly communicates his quite-funniness to the world. And … well, that’s it. You see – we told you it wasn’t very exciting!

30 August – The Refreshing Sound of Coffee

Yes, that’s right. You can now listen to coffee, as well as drink it. Well, the We Have Lost The Coffee audiobook, that is. It’s just been released by Tantor Media and is available on Amazon, Audible and other online retailers. Click here to find out more about the best-selling e-book and the audiobook.

27 August – 10,000 Presidents

Well, not 10,000 presidents – that would be too much for anyone to take. No, what we mean is the 10,000th copy of We Have Lost The President was sold this weekend. It’s currently #2 in the Amazon US ‘British Humor & Satire’ charts (We Have Lost The Coffee is #1 and We Have Lost The Pelicans #3) and #3 in ‘Political Humor’. Thanks to everyone who bought it … and didn’t ask for a refund!

25 July – 15,000 Thank Yous!

It’s a year since I self-published my first novel, We Have Lost The President. In the last 12 months, I’ve published two more e-books – We Have Lost The Pelicans and We Have Lost The Coffee. I’ve totted up the figures and today has seen the 15,000th copy sold of the ‘We Have Lost’ books … something I could only have dreamed of a year ago. Thank you to everyone who has bought one or more of them. I’m currently writing the fourth installment of the series, We Have Lost The Chihuahuas, which will be out on 28 November 2017 (available to pre-order from 1 November). Two more ‘We Have Lost’ books will follow in the first half of 2018. After that, I’ll be writing something completely different. Don’t ask me what – because I have no idea yet!

14 April – New Twitter Me

Yes, that’s right, my socially-mediated friends. From today, I am no longer @IamTheHuman on Twitter. I am now @QuiteFunnyGuy. Why not @VeryFunnyGuy I hear you cry across the interwebs? Well, I’m a very modest kind of homo sapien. And also, someone else already had that username. But I prefer ‘Quite Funny Guy’ anyway. Who knows? Maybe I’ll write a novel called ‘Quite Funny Guy’, one day? A novel that’s made into a film…maybe one starring Sam Rockwell and Angelina Jolie. Okay, that’s enough daydreaming. Just follow me on Twitter and I’ll be happy. Thanks!
