A Journey of Faith by Ann Harrison continues its climb and has moved up another 4 spots to 10th.

Congratulations to Paul Long for making a debut on the chart at 18th place with The Time-Walker Chronicles: Jason Brightday and the Lords of Eh’den.

Contending for SOOP Dollar winners – and the awards of $50, $40, $30, $20, and $10 – are Nicole Collet, Vivek Kumar, Christian Lee, Hanzel Calangan (a new contender), and Colten Zacharias . . . but who will hold those spots in a week at month-end? Keep voting and stay tuned.

Don’t forget, we’ve also introduced new ways to spend these SOOP Dollars to improve your production, platform, and pitch!


  1. Paul Long says:

    Hi there,

    Thanks so much for accepting my application to join, it’s really exciting!
    I was wondering though if you could help me. I have been keeping a close watch on Facebook with the people who have voted. I have left specific instructions on how to vote and have been requesting feedback to make sure that they are voting properly.
    I’m not sure that there is anything you can do, but the likes from Facebook and my votes don’t tally? People have told me that they have “Liked” AFTER they have voted?



  2. Wade Fransson says:

    Paul, we’re excited to have you join SOOP and are duly impressed by your impressive debut. Congrats!

    Re: Facebook Likes, they are great – and in the game we’re playing, they are like cheerleaders. But they don’t really count for anything – our writers score points by getting votes. These translate into email addresses we will later use in building your platform – i.e. your fan base – as you hit the 500 vote milestone and proceed toward publication.

    I hope that helps answer your question, if not, feel free to email [email protected]

    Cheers – and best of success to you!
