About Burning Soul Press

Founded in 2020 by Lauren Eckhardt, Burning Soul Press LLC serves everyone who has a story to share by helping them raise their words with confidence.

We specialize in book coaching, writing courses, memoir ghostwriting, and author services.

Burning Soul comes from the title of one of Lauren’s first story collections that she wrote when she was only nine years old, using it to describe the hidden emotional state of people everywhere. It has stuck ever since, now describing the passionate creative souls who are lit up for their ultimate purpose in life.

Burning Soul Press provides guidance, coaching, inspiration, motivation, support, and solutions to help passionate people share their natural gifts and stories with the world. We take pride in helping people through every stage of their writing journey from planning to writing to publishing to marketing.

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. It doesn’t help anyone if it stays locked inside you. When you write the story that was meant for you to write, you will feel free, especially when it reaches the reader it was ultimately meant to reach.

Feel free to send us a message at hello@burningsoulpress.com for more information.
