Dalene Bickel

Author & Book Coach

Hey there, Christian writer!

It’s time to heed God’s call and #pickupyourpen

I’m here to help you WRITE with clarity, PUBLISH confidently, and MARKET strategically.

God has given you a message for a purpose.

It’s time to take action and make an impact!

Yet writing a book, especially your first book, can be intimidating and challenging.

Where do you even start?


  • try to figure everything out on your own
  • give in to fear or imposter syndrome
  • burn out from overwhelm


  • Seek guidance
  • Honor your efforts
  • Develop and follow a realistic plan

As your book coach, I’m here to help you:

  • simplify the book creation process,
  • map out your author journey, and
  • fuel your faith along the way.
