Share your story. Align with your soul's purpose.
Change the world one story at a time.
Founded in 2020 by Lauren Eckhardt, Burning Soul Press LLC helps soul-driven writers with an empowering message to share become best-selling authors that inspire through social-impact missions—without sacrificing authenticity and time for what matters most. We serve those with an entrepreneurial spirit by guiding them to write and publish stories that align with their soul's purpose, using our unique and exclusive Soul Writer framework.
We specialize in book coaching, creative startups, writing 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 author’s unique story and voice, transformative message, and soulful passion and purpose so they achieve long-term fulfillment.
Burning Soul stems from the title of Lauren's first story collection written when she was only nine years old. At the time, the phrase was used to describe the hidden emotional state of people everywhere who are begging to be seen and heard. It has stuck ever since, now representing the passionate, creative souls who are lit up for their ultimate purpose in life and the importance of sharing our stories to connect with those who need to hear the message within the most.
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.
Since we are such believers in the ripple effects of social impact missions, as of October 1, 2020, every time you choose Burning Soul Press's programs and services, 10% of our profits are donated to Save the Kids, an incredible nonprofit organization fighting social media's influence on teens' mental health.
Feel free to send us a message at [email protected] for more information on how we can change lives together and send endless amounts of positivity, empowerment, and inspiration out into the world.
