Someday my tombstone will read:

She liberated womxn to speak their truth,

tell their story, and live more bravely as themselves.

Here’s the cliff notes version of what I do:

I ghostwrite for (and guide) badass and brilliant womxn coaches, creatives, and entrepreneurs who have incredible personal stories of grit, hope, and triumph meant to inspire their audience, transform the masses, and change the 'effin' world.

‘Cause I believe through powerful messaging and authentic story we can connect people, build community and ruffle enough feathers to exact some change.

Whether you’re saying to yourself

I’m finally going to tell this story
so you can cross it off your bucket list

I need to leave this knowledge behind
so it will be a part of your legacy

I’m going to prove my genius and authority
so you can expand your audience and double down on your expertise

I’m going to change the effin’ world with the power of my experience
so you can be a part of the change you wish to see or

I have to say it out loud and release it
so you can set yourself free

I’ve got your back, Sister.


Whatever your motivation for telling your story and writing your book,
I’m your ghostwriter, guide, and girlfriend, and I’m here to brave the path with you.
Be it you want me to write your story or you want me to coach you how to do it yourself,
we’ve got work to do.

“Ally is a phenomenal writer and incredible human. I love working with her! Part of her magic is in helping you find the powerful story among all the words and crafting it in a way that reaches into the hearts of your readers. There are a lot of people on the market who offer ghostwriting. I wouldn’t trust any of them but Ally to tell my story.”

Here’s the thing you’ve must have
before you work with me:
A HELL YESS IN YOUR HEART.

I’m not kidding about this.

If you’re not completely confident in your ‘why’ (why are you wanting to write this book) you’ll be wasting a lot of time, energy, and money doing something your heart is only half in and we’ll be having a miserable time in the process. 

If it’s not your Why that has you tripped up but the twins, Doubt and Fear (who I know all too well as a writer), then that’s a whole other story. 

Fear and Doubt show up to make you think:

  • What you have to say doesn’t matter
  • You have no business writing a book
  • Your story is just like everyone else’s
  • No one will care about it

And a whole bunch of other bull shit meant to throw you off the path.

(As a friend once said to me when I was writing my own book, “You shoosh those beetches.” And while I hate the b-word, I had to agree with him.) 

Fear and Doubt I can help you overcome and learn to live with, but I can’t turn you on to your own tale. 

Your passion for your story and braving the path to the blank page has to already be kindled. I’ve got plenty of magic and brilliance to offer, but making you go all wild for your own story isn’t one. 

You have to believe in it first. You have to know in your heart that you WANT to WRITE THIS STORY and that you’re ready to.  

WHY DO YOU WANT TO WORK WITH ME?

I couldn’t have said it better myself…

FOR INDIE AUTHORS!

Do you already have a manuscript and publishing plan, but no idea how to market your baby?
Then this is the package for you.

All the Leather Luxury Launch Pack

We get it, you want to write the book but not market it. 

You want to stay in creation mode and out of business mode. 

But you know you gotta be thinking about things like marketing and promoting your book. It's what comes next. It's what happens on the other side of having the book actually written. And you want your book to have all the fixings, all the glamour. You want it to look and smell expensive (like leather). 

Which is why we've got your back in marketing your book. This isn't your cookie-cutter templated launch in a box. This is your customized luxury launch pack tailor-made to match you and your book. 

Our Objectives:

My team and I will develop completely customized launch materials for you to use to launch your books with little effort on your part.

Starting at $7K

“As a first time author I knew the story I wanted to tell but I was overwhelmed as to how to go about it. Ally was with me every step of the way as part teacher, coach, organizer, cheerleader and word wizard. From our very first meeting, she put me at ease with her friendly demeanor and organizational skills, making each step of the book journey a manageable bite. Ally made all the difference in providing the details that made my story compelling and in my own voice. She is a master at helping you craft the story that you are destined to share with the world.”

You Have A Book Waiting To Be Written..

Ally-Berthiaume-©Elisabeth-Waller-Photography-_DSC8386

If you’re not sure exactly what that story is yet or it’s power, you need to work with me to discover it. Try the Story Starter.

If you know what the story is but don’t know what to do with it, work with me to leverage it. Try Sips a Latte.

If you know what it is and how to use it but you don’t want to write it or write it alone, work with me to make it happen. Try Boots and Blue Jeans or Book in a Bag.

AND YOUR STORY IS POWERFUL...

There is power, my dear, to influence and transform others through your shared experience, your wisdom and insight, and all of that lives inside your story.

There is power to reach more people than just the individual or small group because when you write a book, it now has more places to go, more people to serve.

There is power of leaving behind your story for your family and following because a book would be a tangible something they can have, hold, and cherish, which may be more meaningful to them than leaving behind the business you’ve created.

Most importantly, there is power in discovering that you are the hero of your own story, you are brilliant, you are bold, you are badass, and you have been this entire time, didn’t you know?

I had a fantastic experience! Honestly, I thought I was already so far along in my planning that I was worried I wouldn’t know what to talk about with Ally for 90 minutes… and then the time just flew by and I realized all kinds of things I hadn’t thought of! I loved how she completely met me at the place I was at, even though my topic is anything but run of the mill and I bet 99.9% of other writing coaches would have been out of their depth. I loved it so much, I wish I could stuff her ‘Ally input’ in little baggies and open one up every morning. I’ll be sure to book more coaching sessions with her as I move along.
