about burning soul press

since 2020

Founded by Lauren Eckhardt, Burning Soul Press is dedicated to releasing books that inspire, empower, and help others navigate through life’s challenges. The name “Burning Soul Press” originated from a collection of essays Lauren wrote when she was only 9 years old, sharing her thoughts on a wide range of topics, from bullying and racism to marriage. She called it “One Burning Soul” because of a powerful vision she had of someone trapped in a glass box, screaming and pounding, desperate to be seen and heard for who they truly are, yet being ignored by the people walking by. This vision became the driving force behind Lauren’s mission to help people understand how important their life journeys are, and to capture the stories of theirs in a book that can inspire and empower others. 

our mission is simple…

At Burning Soul Press, we believe in the transformative power of authentic stories. We strive to remove barriers and publish books that foster impactful conversations, emphasizing the importance of every individual’s journey. Our focus is on telling genuine stories of overcoming adversity, free from shame, embarrassment, or feelings of unworthiness.

We are fueled by writers and creatives who use their unique voices—their experiences, thoughts, values, beliefs, pers-pectives, emotions, heart, and soul—to change the world. We understand that your distinctive voice has the power to transform another’s life forever, and we are all in this together, using our experiences, perspectives, knowledge, transform-ations, revelations, and growth to empower others who need to hear our stories the most.

At Burning Soul Press, we put a unique twist on the publishing process by focusing on the depth of your journey and the power it holds when shared with the world. We believe that writing a book is a meaningful endeavor, not something to be done quickly. If you want to do more with your dream than just write a book—if you’re focused on your message and long-term impact—you’re exactly who we want to work with.
