This isn't about creating a flimsy book or even about creating a bestseller. It's about who you are and what you stand for to life in a way that changes other people's lives.

clarity in your vision,
accountability to reach your goals,
guidance from industry professionals, and
resources that will save you countless hours researching

help you reach your goals.

Whether you need help identifying your goals, guidance to write powerful stories, education in self-publishing your work, or training in book promotion to reach your readers, The Soulful Author Journey is your all-in-one SOULution!

Authors who make an impact are not an accident, they invest in their message! section at a time!

There are very specific steps you need to follow if you actually expect to get the results you want. Read on to see how you, too, can conquer the challenges you're facing. 

With results like this,

"When I first began, I thought that there might be a story within me, but I was not sure how to get it out or if what I had to say would be worth reading. However, as I worked with this team of amazing people, and applied what I was being taught, I discovered I have a wellspring of life flowing from me. I’ve unlocked the gift of poetry, and even more importantly, found my voice which I had pushed down and silenced for so long. Taking part in this group has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I will forever be grateful to them, because I will never be the same again." - Douglas Stutzman's no wonder our clients are raving about our unique approach to storytelling for impact.

The Soulful Author Journey framework doesn't just help you identify and reach your goals, it also: 

  • Provides you with a tried and true playbook for making an impact as an author.
  • Allows you to write from a place of vulnerability and authenticity - where our best work comes from.
  • Holds you accountable, so you can finally prioritize your dream.
  • Prevents you from spending countless hours researching "how to" videos for building your newsletter, creating a lead magnet, improving your storytelling, or designing a book that embodies your message. 
  • Helps you get your book into the hands of the readers who need it the most, and leave a legacy that matters.

Think about it this way, when you look around at all the successful authors you follow and look up to, they all have a magic about them that people gravitate to. And it's SIMPLE! They are clear about who they are, their message, and their purpose, share information and content their readers and followers benefit from, and make you feel satisfied (whether through humor, vulnerability, life lessons or tips, etc.) You can be the author you look up to: you just need to be clear on your message and share meaningful stories your readers will connect with and benefit from that will keep them coming back to you for more. 

The #1 Mistake Authors Keep Making:

When authors aren't setting and pursuing their goals (whether it's writing, marketing, or publishing), they're losing precious time to make an impact. If you're doing this, you risk the reality that more and more readers won't get the chance to hear your message. 

Or worse! Mistake #2:

When they don't see the progress they want, they double-down in the wrong direction: forcing themselves to write without reflection or inspiration, publishing work they aren't proud of, pursuing a publishing path they aren't aligned with, and either completely abandon marketing efforts or lose sight of their target audience amidst their hard work and miss the mark. That's like trying to fill a leaky bucket with more water... you're going to waste a lot of water (time and energy) and never solve the problem!!

After working with hundreds of writers, helping them to share their stories from concept to manuscript, from publishing to launching, from branding to public speaking - it's clear and simple as this:

You won't reach your goals until you commit to your purpose and invest yourself in sharing your message. 

You see, there is a recipe to making an impact with your message. And this recipe consists of 48 ingredients... or SECTIONS. And if you're missing even just one section, you run the risk of missing the mark for your reader. 

So, just like the classic riddle, "How do you eat an elephant?", one bite at a time!

We can ask a similar question: 

Q: How do you make an impact with your story? 

There is also a specific order to each of those sections. Plus... each section must be completed the right way!

So, what if you had step-by-step instructions for each of those sections? Imagine if you could follow these steps with paint-by-numbers precision and simplicity... EVEN if you've never written a book, published a book, or worked in marketing before in your life!

No more overwhelm. 

No more wondering if you're "doing the right things". 

No more wasting time or money!

Imagine, for just a moment, that you had a step by step process for achieving each of your essential goals. And you could complete as little as two sections a day. 

You would have completed the Soulful Author Journey in less than a month from RIGHT NOW. 

You would have all of the tools, tutorials, resources, and guidance you need to write your book with meaningful stories, publish your book YOUR way, and promote yourself to your ideal reader like the bada** you are. 

Well, you don't have to "imagine" any longer, because it's here.

"Lauren and her passion for Burning Soul Collective came my way right when I needed it most. Having abandoned my writing for the bulk of sixteen years, when I decided to get back to it, I had no idea what I was doing. I knew my heart was calling me to do it and then, BOOM, life sends me the fuel I needed to add to my fire.

Lauren and the team at Burning Soul Collective have reminded me that I am far more capable than I think I am. We all are! You just need that drive and someone amazing like Lauren cheering you on and guiding you along your journey."

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

"Lauren and her team are helpful, knowledgeable and passionate about supporting writers to reach their goals and succeed. Lauren teaches the tools and skills to support your writing journey in a natural, accessible and truly inspiring way! Through the course, I made the necessary changes and recommitted to the book that I’ve been ‘thinking about’ and ‘dabbling with’ writing for a decade now – I feel confident that I’ll finish my book (and possibly many more) with the inspiration, support, accountability and structure that Lauren and her team at Burning Soul Collective offer.
I was so impressed by Lauren’s passion, which shines through her eyes and everything she says."

- Liz Witherspoon

Here's how it works:

Each section of The Soulful Author Journey framework walks you through the four phases of our program: Reflect, Plan, Create, Impact.

You will follow videos and exercises designed to take the researching and heavy lifting out of sharing your message (whether while writing, publishing, or marketing!). Plus, you'll get detailed resources, tutorials, and templates to make sharing your message SIMPLE and FUN!

You'll maintain LIFETIME access to The Soulful Author Journey course, including any updates and improvements to our content. Here's our unique framework:

Introduction: Identify your why and uncover your purpose for your book through your core values. 
Reflect: Determine your ultimate message, create your ideal reader, learn how to pull out your most meaningful stories, and discover how to take your reader on an emotional transformation. 
Plan: Decide what you're promising your reader, which book structure to follow, what your main goals are, and how you will remain committed to your book and your message.
Create: Find your author voice, learn how to connect deeply with your audience, learn writing skills such as plot, character, and scene development, and walk through your editing process. 
Impact: Determine what publishing path to pursue (with resources for traditional-, hybrid-, and self-publishing at your fingertips), learn how to effectively market your book through branding, social media, partnerships and more, and discover how to get featured in articles, on podcasts, and in the media. 

You will also be enrolled in a twelve-week group coaching program in a focus area you choose. You'll have access to LIVE coaching sessions, with the opportunity for Q&A with your coach. 

If you choose to focus on writing, you'll cover how to write for yourself first, so you are able to write from your most vulnerable and real place, what book structures best align with the type of book you're writing, and how to evoke raw emotions in your writing so you can connect deeply with your readers. 

If you choose to focus on publishing, you'll cover the types of publishing paths available to you and how to choose yours, best practices for each publishing path available to you, and how to publish under your own imprint to expand your brand. Ultimately, you get to decide how you want to share your story with the world and have every resource at your disposal to make it a reality.

If you choose to focus on promotion, you'll cover how to build your website and your email newsletter (your best weapon), what to do to score reviews and book tours, how you should pitch yourself to media and potential partners, steps to build your launch team and host your own launch party, and more to leave the program understanding how to best represent yourself to your target audience and potential partners.

Here's WHY it works:

Lauren is dedicated to helping soulful authors share their stories with the world. A seasoned book coach, she's helped hundreds of authors identify their core message, what we call your soul's message. From there, she helps writers craft their meaningful stories around their soul's message, creating what we call storytelling for impact

That's a big part of what The Soulful Author Journey is about. But we take it one step further. With lifetime access to the course, we also show you how to publish and promote your book with your message in mind, using the very tools, resources, and industry knowledge we use with our publishing clients. But YOU get to own it, and YOU get to create your impact. When you take control of your story and share it in a way that is authentic to you, you connect with your reader on a deeper level

You see, this isn't about creating a flimsy book or even about creating a bestseller. It's about who you are and what you stand for - brought to life in a way that changes other people's lives. Your transformative legacy. If you commit to writing and sharing your story using our unique framework,  you will be able to hold your story - your book - in your hands, confident that it is a true reflection of your heart, soul, and the impact you want to make on this world. 

That's why it works. It's yours.
We just guide you to write the most powerful and intimate rendition of your story in a book you can share, bring it to life, and reach your reader.

The course was just the thing I was looking for to get me out of a creative slump. The sense of community made such a difference for me and engaged me in writing in many new and diverse ways. Writing is an isolated activity, and the group made me feel like part of a family. I needed that, and so did my stories.

-Leah Spradlin

“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.
