Introducing Geoffrey Bott, author of Uphill: An Inspirational Story of Suffering, Greed, Carnage, Immense Courage and Gut-determination

“This whole experience has been brilliant. I have never written a book so didn’t know what to expect. Uphill is incredibly emotional. The stories are real and I have been torn to pieces. Writing it, editing it and editing again for printing was hard work. We got there. I am just in awe, honestly. Speechless…. Thank you. It has been a privilege. I have written the first chapter of my next book, a fictional thriller. Fantastic. I am shocked and humbled.”

Book description…

A story that is touching every reader’s heart…. from the man who lived it. Born in England to a middle class family, Geoffrey Bott excelled at school in most sports. A tenacious and unbridled drive to succeed that he didn’t know would be required in order to survive later in life. Armed with a degree in engineering from the University of Sheffield, Geoffrey moved to California to reap his American Dream. Uphill is incredibly emotional, vivid and detailed about the rise and fall of a gifted and talented engineer. An innocuous knee injury playing rugby for his city would develop into a grim prognosis a few decades later. A month after rejecting a second groundbreaking knee rebuild procedure, his wife files for divorce and the life he had attained started to unravel. The book takes the reader to a bar in soviet Russia, a brothel in Venezuela, a nightclub in Hong Kong, to Taipei, Tokyo, Vancouver Island, a casino in Las Vegas. It graphically describes thirteen left knee surgeries, screaming pain, addictions to mind-altering opioids, a precedent-setting divorce, a court file sealed from public records, a forest fire that destroyed his new neighbourhood, a night in jail, world’s first scientific discoveries and cycling heroics deemed impossible that left the renowned medical profession speechless. This is a captivating page-turner that has it all and encapsulates the very essence of human suffering, courage, hope and determination. An inspirational, entertaining and riveting story that will leave the reader stunned and emotionally drained.

Introducing Joy E. Mason, author of Purpose: A Shift from Driving It to Embracing It

“My Author Representative was very responsive whenever I had a question. Thank you!”

Joy E. Mason is a recent retiree who grew up in a family that read insatiably, traveled extensively, and contributed passionately to the community. These experiences and the influence of her family contributed significantly to her Purpose Journey and her writing. Joy graduated from Miami University with a bachelor’s degree in microbiology and from Butler University with a master’s degree in pharmaceutical sciences. From 1988 to 2017, she worked her way up from associate to a global quality consultant, supporting an Indianapolis-based company’s international laboratories. As one of the few African-American women in a professional role supporting manufacturing, she successfully navigated corporate systems to eventually be recognized for her project leadership. The sometimes difficult navigation of a corporate environment contributed to exposing what felt like a paradox between wanting to be professionally successful and wanting spiritual fulfillment. This paradox, her faith, and her unquenchable reading contributed to her Purpose Journey. Joy successfully executed an aggressive plan to retire at the age of fifty. She is now an entrepreneur leveraging her black belt six sigma certification and her strong belief that every process can be improved, and every problem can be solved. Joy uses her extra time to travel with her family, volunteer, read, exercise, and tend her garden.

Are You Truly Living with Purpose… or Just Reaching Goals? If you are driven or an overachiever; if you feel as though you are on a treadmill, reaching, straining, and driving for something; if you are still trying to understand your life’s purpose, then Purpose: A Shift from Driving It to Embracing It is for you. In this book, you will discover how goals and purpose are different. Unlike most books on finding life’s purpose, this book starts with what life’s purpose is not, because this is precisely how the author came to understand what was real in her life and what was imagined or supposed. The author demonstrates how not to look in a distorted mirror for answers, not to be hijacked by our past, not to practice off-purpose thinking and self-grievance, and so much more. She uses personal experiences, like joining a risky lawsuit and dealing with the reality of a brain tumor, as well as lessons of the spiritual leaders who guided her on her journey, to show how her perspective on a purpose-driven life changed over time and how that change led her to the peaceful space she’s in today. Warm, real, and relatable, this down-to-earth book is a practical roadmap to a more fulfilling way to be in the world.
