Bottom-Up Media takes a different approach to publishing. While most publishing companies sit around and wait for authors to contact them with a pitch for a new book, we generate ideas for books and how to market them, and then go out and find the authors to create them. That's the Bottom-Up approach to publishing.
We are not a "vanity" or "subsidy" publisher. We are very particular about the books we publish under the Bottom-Up Media name. We will not accept your book just because you have money available. We cannot accept all submissions anyway simply because of the time required to properly prepare a book for publication.
We can, however, help you self-publish your book with our book packaging service.

Journey to the Kingdom of God
by Jane Stuart Els

What is Mission? Why do we do it? How will it change us?
 Journey to the Kingdom of God is an informative and often humorous look at years of mission trips to Guatemala and the front lines of Hurricane Katrina.

From the jungles of Guatemala to Ground Zero of Hurricane Katrina, average church-goer Jane Stuart Els turns into a confident representative of the church. She takes us on a ten-year journey in which she discovers new definitions of "mission" and what the "Kingdom of God" means.


Best of Passion Poetry
by Rudy V

Kevyn "Rudy V" Williams, one-time quarterback for the Texas Tech Red Raiders, responded one day to a call for contestants by radio station Majic 102 FM in Houston. The contestants would "play DJ" and if the radio station liked one of them, he or she just might land a job. The last contestant to enter was Kevyn Williams, at that time a driver for UPS. He called himself "Rudy V." He was the hands-down winner. The rest is Texas radio history.

Best of Passion Poetry includes many of Rudy’s best-known poems from his first three books, plus brand-new poems and some prose material he calls "passionate preachin’." The book is both inspirational and entertaining. Rudy’s primary radio audience is women 25-54, and he is highly rated on his weeknight program, "The Rudy V Show" on 94.5 KSoul in Dallas. He has been on the air in Dallas since 2002, and held the honor of highest-rated nighttime show at Majic 102 in Houston for several years before that.

Houston Underground Shopper
by Sue Goldstein

Houston 100 Best Underground Shopper

This year, if you are in Dallas/Ft Worth, Texas, you can find her in every copy of the Verizon SuperPages. Tear the lawyer's stick-on flyer off the front cover and you will see her picture. But for many years, shoppers in Dallas, Houston and many other cities across the country have relied on Goldstein's discount shopping books and other resources for  "living the good life at half the price."

The Vince Vance Rock & Roll Reader
by Vince Vance

Vince Vance's Rock & Roll Reader

Vince Vance, band leader extraordinaire with the tall hair, has published his first book. The Vince Vance Rock & Roll Reader, with its lush illustrations and flowing, poetic stories, was designed to be read by a parent to a child. That's because it's fun for both to read!

Of course, independent-reading children can certainly enjoy this book by themselves. It is full of stories, songs and poems like Don't Touch My HairPotato Madness, Chili Christmas, The Legend of the Easter Vinnie and many more. There are fun fairy-tale stories, jokes, riddles and brainteasers that will keep your child's attention for hours on end.

Vince Vance & The Valiants is the band that brought you America's most requested Christmas song (according to Billboard Magazine) every year since 1972, All I Want For Christmas Is You.


Liars, Lawyers, Con Men and Thieves
by Bud Hibbs

Liars, Lawyers, Con Men and Thieves

Can't talk too much about this one...it's a secret. But it's the next blockbuster by America's Consumer Credit Advocate Bud Hibbs, author of Stop It! and Guilty Until Proven Innocent, two books that have helped hundreds of thousands of consumers stop the illegal practices of debt collectors and get their credit whipped into shape.
Bud claims that debt collectors are not only mean & nasty, but they are almost universally willing to break every law and lie to you about it. His new book will expose them for the con men they are.
