Make a Powerful Impact with your Book

Get your story written, published, and marketed in one program tailored entirely to you.


When you know your book can be more than just a book, you want to do everything right to make it successful. But the journey to get there contains many steps, and it's near impossible for one person to know how to do everything perfectly—especially your first time.

Feedback on your writing, guidance on your publishing paths, and insights on strategies to connect with your audience are just the tip of the iceberg. You want confidence in each decision, trusting you are gearing up to make the impact you've dreamt of. We are done overanalyzing every option and missing critical opportunities (because do-overs aren't easy!).

Whether writing, preparing for publishing, launching your book, or seeking marketing, PR, or business guidance, we have combined everything authors need in one robust superhero program that's customized to you.

Most authors will spend hours falling into rabbit holes of research, attempting to mirror the results of other authors that post their wins in Facebook groups, or losing money in trial and error methods that won't work for them. (We've been there!) Every author path is different, and there is not a one-size-fits-all plan (but how nice would that be?!).

Besides, you didn't start writing to have to worry about the hidden components that compose successful authors; you wrote because you had a story to share with the world, and you knew it was time. (It is time!)

So, keep your energy on what lights you up, and let us dork-out on the parts that we absolutely love and guide you through the rest.

In the monthly Luminary Mentorship program, you have your very own team of book mentors, publishing guides, marketing & PR strategists who actually truly care about you and your book's success to help you every step of the way. You share your goals; we provide the mentorship and tools to achieve every single one of those goals (with a side of cheerleading because we're book nerds who fall hopelessly in love with our author' stories!).

Authors in the Luminary Mentorship program can rest assured knowing every moment they spend with their book is productive and impactful, so they can do it right the first time, enjoy the ride, and the fruits of their work.

If you are seriously committed to making a difference in this world through your book and want to protect your energy so you can focus on what you love doing the most, this program is for you. Our goal is to simply make it easier by providing the support you need as you launch this incredible venture and chase your dreams.

You will always walk away with more confidence and a solid "next step" plan in place.

“Lauren Eckhardt and Burning Soul Press made the journey of writing my memoir possible. She is a wonderful coach and encourager. The hundreds of hours we’ve spent crying and laughing together over the past year will always be some of my favorite memories.

-Gina Defa, Best-Selling Author of "The Parakeet Drawing"


“I’ve never felt so supported and taken care of in going all in chasing my dreams. Every single member of the Burning Soul Press team has made an impact. I want to thank Burning Soul Press for the support in helping me find avenues to reach out with this message. I appreciate you all very much.” 

-Jennifer Hobbs, #1 Best Selling Author of "Calmed."

"As I look back I see so much I would never have thought of doing, and so much I would not have known how to do, were I publishing this book independently. I am extremely grateful that Lauren Eckhardt came into my life when and as she did, and helped me to feel the confidence that I could and should share this book with others. When a publisher can be businesslike and still leave no doubt that you are also a friend, you know you are in the right place. And I have been floored by the advocacy and support I have received from each one of Lauren's team. To everyone who contributed to this launch, my thanks." 

-Marcia Nathai-Balkissoon, Author of "Lighting the Path"
