Writing Help

Writing and Consulting - Ask Allison Bottke Are you someone with an idea, a vision, a dream? Someone who is often told, “You should write a book about that!” Are you someone who is ready to make that dream a reality? If so, I’d love to help you. I work privately with a limited number of people who are serious about doing what it takes to write a non-fiction book (including memoir) or develop a book proposal.

I’m also available to conduct ghostwriting, developmental editing, or substantive editing on your full or partial non-fiction manuscript. And I work in both the Christian and Secular markets.

Writer's Digest - Allison BottkeIf you’re new to the publishing world it’s understandable that you most likely have a lot of questions.

That’s why I also offer a one-hour “Ask Allison” phone consultation specifically for the purpose of getting your questions answered and discussing your options. The fee for this one-hour session can be applied to additional services.

For a complete list of my services offered and fees, please download my consulting brochure at the end of this page for more information.

31Miracles“Allison Bottke, is a miracle herself. She is so passionate about her work, and believed in this project with all her heart. She is a very gifted professional writer and editor, and has been extremely patient with me, a novice in this field. With her guidance and attention to detail, I finished this book in record time.

Allison’s ability to organize, develop, edit, and prepare the manuscript for printing is another miracle. Even our final cover design is based on her original concept. I could never ask for a more perfect partner in this God-appointed time and project. He brought Allison to help me bring the incredible stories of my miracles to life. I will be forever grateful.”

Christine Devine Cover“I am impressed, overwhelmed and humbled by Allison’s efforts on my own book. She is not only an editor and writer, she is a cheerleader and an expert in her field.  Allison walked me through my own personal doubts on whether I could even pull off a book. She worked under extreme deadline and at all hours of the night shuffling through my notes, loose chapters and new ideas. What I loved perhaps the most is her empathy and understanding as I exposed my heart and soul through my writing. Allison was perceptive, conscientious and truly my guardian angel.”
