Lauren Eckhardt

Work with Me

Writing a book is a dream that may cross a person’s mind, but when it implants in your heart, that’s when you know it’s greater than just an idea, and is truly part of your purpose here in this world.

I don’t take that lightly.

Part of my passion in what I do is driven by the belief that if a specific idea has landed on you, there’s a reason you were chosen to bring that story to life. Not only is there a reason why you need to write it, but there’s someone who needs to read it written exactly in the way that no one else except you can do.

More than likely you’re here because you already know that’s true, but now you’re looking for the way to actually get it done. You don’t want to wait any longer. You know now is the time.

My job and purpose in this world is to give you the right tools, options, strategies, steps, solutions, feedback, and coaching to turn that idea into a completed manuscript so that it can finally be published and shared with the world.

Right now, you’re a person with a book idea, or maybe you’re a writer with some of your manuscript written, but I’m here to tell you that you can be the published author of your dreams— with a powerful book you’re proud to share with the world!— no matter your current circumstances.

Working with me, you’ll go from just having an idea to having a completed book by the end and more confidence in your author journey ahead.

And I WANT to be on that journey with you, guiding you to reach every one of your goals and dreams on this incredible path. It’s what lights me up, and I guarantee (and my clients can tell you), you’ll be lit up as well when we work together, discovering a newfound passion and excitement for the process of writing a book that you may have never had before.

How? By working one-on-one with an experienced and award-winning author, book coach, and ghostwriter so you don’t have to go at it alone or feel alone.

When you work with me, I’m with you the whole way.

Unlike writing courses, workshops or conferences, your book coach or ghostwriter is in this with you for the long haul. Not only will you learn the structuring, storytelling, messaging, voice, tone, and delivery skills you need to write a book, but you’re guided through the entire journey of writing, publishing, and getting your book into the hands of those it was meant for.

“Lauren Eckhardt and Burning Soul Collective 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. Lauren was a huge part of my sharing the story- her belief in why others needed to hear it.”

Book Coaching


With book coaching, we work on elements of your book such as structure, voice, tone, message delivery, target audience connection, storytelling, industry expectations, and identify any gaps that may exist between the author telling what they know vs. what the reader still needs to be able to understand. We also set a timeline for when we want the entire book to be done, and I keep you accountable to the milestones we set.

What’s included:

  • 2 Monthly 1:1 sessions via Zoom for brainstorming and accountability

 “Lauren’s editing skills and one on one coaching conversations have been nothing short of amazing. She helped me to develop my book in ways that I hadn’t even considered – her guidance and input were invaluable. Our conversations were gloriously 75% randomness, 10% sarcasm, and 15% about my book, and yet she still managed to show me a whole new outlook. Lauren has become like family to me, so she is stuck with me lol. I’m so grateful for the help she has given me with my book. Thank you Lauren – you are truly amazing.”

I owe a lot to my book coach (and publisher) Lauren Eckhardt, CEO of Burning Soul Collective! Her enthusiasm further convinced me that it was chalked full of messages every parent needed to have. I love writing but it’s hard to see your own flaws as you go. It was nice not having to worry about that. It’s amazing what power a single supporter has in helping another person unfurl their could-be-brilliant ideas in the form of a book.

Lauren Eckhardt is a structure expert.  She kept telling me not to worry about that until later….just to write the book.  That was excellent advice.  I organized many ideas under big, broad chapter headings that I felt encompassed (almost) all aspects of [my book]. With Lauren’s help, the rest fell into place.

“Writing your first book can be both wonderful and intimidating. Are you getting your message across? Are you using the same phrases and wording too often? Is your spacing right?  The list of worries is endless. Unless you are fortunate enough to have Allison on your team! Her ability to hear your voice in your storytelling is her biggest strength. She then edits with amazing talent to make sure all those fears are taken care of. I loved the word and phrase changes she made in “Walk with Me”!

She has an endless vocabulary in her beautiful mind and worked hard to make sure the flow of my message came across. She’s not afraid to ask questions or request more detail. Some things within my story which seemed obvious to me because it was my story now have deeper meaning to more readers because of her diligence. You need Allison as part of your book writing adventure!”
