Howdy, Ladies and Gents! Welcome to February: The Winter that feel like Spring edition.

What are you eagerly waiting for?

How do I get onto Top 40?

As stated previously, the Top 40 is the monthly culmination of our Hot 20 lists. Book Idea placement is determined by a formula that takes into account how many votes a Book Idea has gotten in the last month, how quickly they got those votes, and a few other things. We have a few ways to help you make it onto these lists.

We Want to Work With You

Here at SOOP, we want to help you succeed. Once you have submitted your Book Idea, there are two levels of participation to get you to the end goal of publication: Free and Premium. The Free Level offers many of the same helpful services, including homework at each stage of the voting process that helps you, the author, create substantial marketing progress and develop the best book possible. These homework assignments are managed in phases, and returned on a pass/fail basis.

The Premium Level, offers the unique benefits of personalized feedback from our panel of experts. This gives the author a more complete idea of their direction. They 85% required passing grades on the homework makes sure that the author gets a more complete picture of their progress. When armed with more information, the author can then readjust and with more precision.

So which Level makes the most sense for you. Read the FAQ about costs for more information and contact us if you have questions.

Or, you can earn them for free by reaching 2,000 valid votes through our author-driven model. Regardless of which route you choose, submit your book idea here, build an audience and anticipate orders from those who vote for your Book Idea(s).
