Welcome to the
Jeff Brown website
Hello, come in and shelter from this crazy world for a while. I have tea bags, toilet rolls and seats set out 2 metres apart. Anyway, I'm Jeff, welcome to my website.
I'm a good few years older than in this picture, but it looks like I'm offering you a warm welcome (at the time I was attempting a condor impression, but it doubles up as a nice welcome).
My book details, travel picture links and money raised updates are below. Hope you find whatever you are looking for!
"An Ordinary Man's Travels In An Extraordinary World" was launched on the 26th August 2019. I'm donating 80% of the book's author royalties to the Meningitis Research Foundation. It is available to order in paperback and ebook at many online bookstores around the world.
About the book
Can we do a deal? If you buy this book, to help me raise money for meningitis research, I’ll take you around the world. What do you think?
I’ll take that as a maybe. For this world trip, you just need a comfortable seat and a glass of something good. We are aiming to reach every continent, but I am merely ordinary so don’t blame me if we don’t get past Calais. Although I do promise you a disappearing hostel, wrong trains, flashing Danes, dangerous animals, lost cities, a thoroughly distasteful but delightfully English sweepstake, murder on the Inca Trail, a death defying comeback and so much more.
At the very least, read the seventh chapter, as your life or something even more important, may depend on it.
The small (but beautifully proportioned) introduction to the book is available on the button below. The introduction takes about 3 minutes 20 seconds to read but I think that by the 89th second you will probably know whether you want to read the book.
Travel diary pictures
The buttons below can whisk you away to pictures of my travels featured in the 'Ordinary Man In An Extraordinary World' book. The pictures are accompanied by captions that provide a little story of the trips but are mainly an excuse for some dodgy puns.
Money raised and book sales
I am trying to raise £2,000 for the Meningitis Research Foundation from the book royalties of "An Ordinary Man's Travels In An Extraordinary World" and sell 600 books. I'm also topping up the royalties through a Just Giving webpage https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jeff-brown
- I'm not sure whether this is cheating but I know it means I get to raise more money. If you give me a drum roll I'll give you the latest figures (this isn't straightforward but I have all my fingers and toes out to help me with the calculation). As at the 6th May 2020 the estimated figures are:
Books sold = 303
Estimated money raised = £1,442
Hooray I have breached the 300 book mark - the next target to reach is to raise £1,500. More details about my book publishing journey are available on my book's blog. The blog is available by pressing the button below:
