    Tell Your Story

    Anyone taking the plunge and donating £180 or more will get all of the above-described rewards (2 copies of 9 Months in Tibet, exclusive access to my next book and a postcard from Scotland).

    In addition, I will write an article on a subject of your choosing. This could be about a great journey, a political point of view, an insight into your work or passion -- or maybe a short family history.

    Once I get your approval for the article I will offer it for publication wherever you like -- your organisations blog/website -- and can even pitch it to the media (but not guarantee its publication there).

    With your approval, I will publish the article on my blog (which I can guarantee) and will pitch it to Huffington Post, UK edition.

    Learn How it's Done

    This level of donation takes you to a whole new level.

    Only one person can make this pledge. They will get all the above-described rewards (2 copies of 9 Months in Tibet, exclusive access to my next book, a postcard from Scotland and an article).

    In addition, this top sponsor will get an exclusive one-day seminar delivered at any location in the UK.

    In addition, I will read from 9 Months in Tibet and Writing on a Bike: Observations from a dis-United Kingdom -- and give feedback on any travel writing by the sponsor.
