About JeffreyBrown
Joined November 2017
Hello everyone, my name is Jeff and I am originally from Dallas, Texas, though I have lived in Kansas for the last 36 years. I am a 54 year old married man with seven children and two grandchildren. I am a Christian, a United States Army veteran, and a locksmith in my town, which is Junction City, KS USA, home to Ft. Riley and the US Army's BIG RED ONE--First Infantry Division (where I was stationed). After the Army, and while I was still attending Kansas State University, I started my own business here--it's called J & J Locksmith Service, and has been a successful going concern for the past 29 years.

I became a proud 1996 graduate of Kansas State University--GO WILDCATS--with degrees in Accounting, Management, and Finance, and a minor in Economics. The diploma certainly looks good on the wall, but since I already had my business started, I stuck with it, since I enjoyed being my OWN boss, and realized there was no turning back after that initial taste of success.

As I've gotten older, I found out I was a type two diabetic, after an infection in my right foot forced me to have all the toes and half the rest of it amputated in December of 2015, I have slowed down somewhat--even though I manage quite well without it. Since I was a kid (around age 11), I had always been writing stories in spiral notebooks, continuing in the army at times when I was on guard duty, etc., but after I finished school and got serious into my business, I found that I no longer had time for it. After the operation, while waiting to heal enough to get back to work, I began writing again in earnest, and haven't stopped since. This prompted me to become a self-published author, having now written a number of historical science-fiction novels (about 12 -17 so far in a series) under the Nom de Plume, J. Lynn Brown--which is my first initial and my full middle and last name. I do this to differentiate myself from a prolific author with many works by the same given name as mine so that I might also stand out.

The novels start at the end of the American Civil War and follow a large group of Confederate refugees who flee the United States to search for a new place to call home after the defeat of the Confederacy. During their voyage, they get hopelessly lost in the Bermuda Triangle ending up in another magical place with some interesting fantasy creatures and other characters, with a little magic and everyday life mixed in for good measure. The novels are part of a series called Bermuda's Secret.

I have placed them on the Amazon Kindle Platform (Kindle Direct Publishing). I currently have about 17 books published and live on there (12 from the series, one stand-alone, two image books and 2 blog books).

Here is the link to my author page:

https://www.amazon.com/J.-Lynn-Brown/e/B079QT4S4L?ref_=dbs_p_ebk_r00_abau_000000

There are currently many more in the works. If anyone chooses to read them I would appreciate a review--good or bad, I NEED the criticism or praise to let me know how I am doing. Best of all, you can also read them for free if you're an Amazon Prime member (I think only in the US and possibly the UK). If you aren't a prime member, they are all reasonably priced, The e-books are in the $2.99-$4,99 price range. AGAIN, I COULD CERTAINLY USE THE REVIEWS.

Wealthy Affiliate will eventually be VERY instrumental in my marketing plan for these serial novels, and other books that I'm working on--I already have domain names purchased and a few websites for my books and other niches, but I'm just reading and learning here for right now, though I'll eventually get all those sites up and running a lot better than they are now. (I know--procrastination!)

During my locksmith career and my budding writing career, I've also been a long-time avid eBay store owner (since 2002), and that takes up a lot of my extra time as well My user id is texasnational, and my store is called Tex's Surplus and collectibles. Even though I sound pretty busy, I believe that having these three income sources will pan-out in the long-run. I have never been one to place all my eggs in one basket, since usually at least one avenue is generating income for me, if there is a down-turn in any of the others. Occasionally, they all three kick in, though not often...YET!

I ALSO HAVE A YOUTUBE CHANNEL-- YOU CAN FIND IT HERE:

As I said before, this WA platform is just what I'm looking for to enhance my different interests with the use of the websites since the internet is the way for the future, and the education, coupled with the vibrant and helpful community here is out of this world, so I figured why not? The people here are genuine and pretty cool. Besides, this could be the platform that finally ties everything else together for me and helps it all run smoother! Best SUCCESS to everyone who joins--for the cost, in my opinion, it is money well spent--you couldn't even pay for one decent half-semester college class for the annual WA dues! It truly is a University of Opportunity, Wealth, and knowledge for those who apply themselves!!

Hi Jeffrey,
I am also in eBay and wondering if you are planning to have your own website on WA with your eBay listings? I am considering that possibility right now to have another platform to have my listings on too.
Right now I have 900 Active listings and my eBay store name is Retiring to Re-Homing and my intention is to let go of the many things in my home and turn it into a little cash in my retirement. I am loving it so much, but need to make a decision in continuing with WA this year or not. My hope is that I will receive help with my intention to have a website (s) that will pay for the cost of the membership too.
I was so excited about seeing your post this morning when I logged in to WA to check to see if that domain is available, and it is! Yea! So just wondering if you are intending to do the same thing in have your listings on your own website with the same name as your eBay store too? I believe that many are now looking to put their eggs in as many baskets as possible from the recent eBay problems etc.
Anyways, so glad to meet you and will be checking on your progress in the coming months too.
Blessings to you!

It is a goal of mine to do that, Diane. I have my userid domain purchased for over a year now. Got a lot of irons in the fire, but I'm thinking of putting some select items on that website when it goes active and point it back towards ebay. Might eventually sign up to be an ebay affiliate as well! I keep around 1,100 items floating on ebay every month. PM me anytime if you have any thoughts about that.!

Hi Jeff,
I am truly glad for you and your dogs. I always think that it takes a great and caring character to love dogs. Please know this my friend: you are one in many ways, Jeff. In my opinion, the fact that you care and love your dogs, you take care of the whole world.
This is a sign that you walk with your success every day.
Enjoy my friend!

Hi Jeff,
Thanks for the Follow. I'm Following you back. I know you will be a big success on WA simply because you love to write. I have 2 published books out on the market as well. The first was a children's book titled, "Lessons For Today's Kids." The other was a text book titled, "From High School To College: A Transitional Guide." They never hit the Ten Best Sellers List, but they are still out there.

Hi Jeffrey, my name is William Sim. I am from Singapore. I am new in internet marketing. There are a lot of stuff I still do not know. I do not know how to begin. I would like to have a domain name. I hope to find one that is economical say about $10 for a year subscription for starter. But I still need someone who can guide me in building the website. I have watch the training video but am still not able to understand the process. Can you recommend a place where I can seek help in this. Thank you.
