About Burning Soul Press
The Passion Within

We specialize in book coaching, courses, ghostwriting, publishing, marketing, and author services.

Our Soul Writer framework helps writers unveil the depths of their soul’s journey, weaving their stories with their soul-driven mission through the writing and publishing of their books to become entrepreneurial authors with a message to share. We focus on our authors' unique story and voice, transformative message, and soulful passion so they achieve true fulfillment through their lifes's purpose.

Burning Soul Press provides guidance, coaching, inspiration, motivation, support, and solutions to help people share their natural gifts and stories with the world. We take pride in walking people through every stage of their writing journey, from planning to publishing to marketing, and launching successful digital businesses that can reach people on a global scale.

We are advocates for greater diversity in the book world and aim to elevate the words and stories of people from all backgrounds. Our words, stories, characters, themes, messages—they can change lives. We believe if there’s a story idea that landed on you, there’s a REASON it chose you. When you write the story that was meant for you to write, you will discover a new kind of freedom, especially when it reaches the reader it was ultimately meant to reach.
