SOOP on Saturday: New Book Ideas and “Shout Out”


SOOP_HOT_NEW_BOOK_IDEAS1-217x300Brand new book ideas are a bit like brand new babies. Each has its own potential and group of readers just waiting to read it. Ok, that’s not a perfect metaphor, but I’m sure you know what I mean. It’s easy to get excited about these new ideas. We are, and we hope you are, too. Vote for a book idea today

Without further ado, here are the latest new book ideas, in the order they appeared: 

Give the gift of your vote

Just visit their book idea page, read their synopsis, and vote. Remember, a valid vote is one that expresses genuine interest in potential purchase of the book at a future date (though it’s not a commitment). Just remember, the intention of the voting system is to create a “level playing field” for our authors. “One Person, One Vote.” However, you are certainly welcome to vote for as many book ideas as you want.

Shout out for great progress

The following are our greatest “movers and shakers” — those authors whose book idea is “knocking it out of the park” for various reasons:

  1. Stepping it Up—author of the book idea that moved up the most slots within the chart, month over month. Congratulations to Steve Wollet for Blasphemous Cocktails, moving from 5th to 1st since his debut only last month! 
  2. Most Increased Votes—author of the book idea that showed the largest numeric increase in votes, month over month. Congratulations to Jennifer Irwin for A DRESS THE COLOR OF THE SKY, consistently acquiring literally hundreds of votes in successive months to push her towards the top of the list. 

And . . .  honorable mention to our New Vote-Getter —author of the NEW book idea that has already crossed one or more of the voting thresholds and qualifies for FREE BENEFITS already!  Congratulations to Robert Lesauteur for The Four of Us. He has earned more than 50 votes (now at 89 votes) and the free Production Self-Help Guide. Way to go, Robert!
