Writing Help

Spend one-on-one time with Allison

Empty Notebook and PenAre you someone with an idea, a ministry, 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. With over a decade of experience working full time in the Christian publishing field, I’ve enjoyed teaching, encouraging and empowering many amazingly talented men and women over the course of my writing and speaking career.


I’ve met many of you while serving on the Faculty of writer’s conferences around the country, including the Jerry Jenkins Writing for the Soul Conference, Blue Ridge Christian Writer’s Conference, Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference, Glorietta Christian Writers Conference, Write to Publish, Seattle Pacific Christian Writers Conference, the North Texas Christian Writers Conference , and more.


Freelance Editing and Private Consulting

I love to work with folks who have a story to tell. Alas, the time constraints inherent in writer’s conferences don’t give me the ability to spend much individualized one-on-one time. That’s why I work privately with a limited number of people who are serious about doing what it takes to write a book, develop a book proposal, or just brainstorm big picture ideas to obtain more focus and organize their thoughts and concepts. I’m also available to conduct Developmental/Substantive Editing or Medium Copyediting on your full or partial non-fiction manuscript.


I’d love to help you get closer to achieving your writing and publishing goals. Remember—it’s never too late to achieve the dreams of your heart. Let’s get started now!


STEP ONE: Please read the PDF documents on this site that explain my Editing and Consulting Services Available, including the Book Proposal Development flyer.


STEP TWO: After reading these documents, send an email and tell me what you need, briefly tell me your goals. Give me 2-3 dates and times you will be available for a two-hour “Ask Allison” phone session, include your timezone, and I’ll do my best to accommodate your schedule. I will confirm a date/time via email. Send your preferred dates/times to this email address: Allison@AllisonBottke.com 


That’s it! I look forward to talking with you soon.




ATTENTION DALLAS/FORT WORTH RESIDENTS: If you live in the DFW area we can conduct your two-hour “Ask Allison” session in person by special appointment, at no extra charge.

“I have often paraphrased the Apostle Paul when I speak to writers about marketing, declaring, “Follow Allison as she follows the Lord.” As one of the leading Christian voices today, Allison Bottke has taken seriously the biblical admonition to be “excellent in what is good…” (Romans 16:19a). As an author, speaker, and marketing expert, Allison has been a trailblazer in Christian media for more than a decade. Following her lead and learning from her wealth of experience may be one of the best decisions you could make in your ministry and career.” — Craig von Buseck, Ministries Director, CBN.com, Author of NetCasters: Using the Internet to Make Fishers of Men

“My experience with Allison Bottke was the turning point for me in writing my book. She is one of the most creative and talented women I know. Her ability to translate that creativity to my book project was phenomenal. She creatively organized my concept into a dynamic book proposal that has given me incredible focus. If you’re serious about seeing results in your life as a writer, spend a few hours with Allison. She can take an idea and turn it into an amazing story.” – Suellen Roberts, Founder & President, Women in Christian Media

“Allison Bottke lit a fire under me in a year when my business was just starting to take off — and just starting to spin out of control. Allison helped me see that success was going to kill me unless I got things organized. She motivated me and showed me how to clean up my office, hire an accountant, create a vision for my company, and start acting like a pro instead of an amateur. Allison, I can’t thank you enough for making me clean up my act!”

– Randy Ingermanson, Publisher, Advanced Fiction Writing E-zine
