Saturday SOOP: Top 40 Book Ideas of March

It’s that time again! Time for us to look at the last month’s Top 40 Book Ideas. There’s always a lot of surprises and movement on this list, and this month is no exception. Additionally, this month we welcomed four new book ideas from our best-selling author Carey Azzara. Be sure to keep an eye out for them on this list.

It’s also basically spring here in the South, which means that it’s time for creative outlets of all kinds. Personally, it’s the time of year that I start baking everything and thinking about gardening. What are your favorite things to do when the trees start budding.

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.

For all you DIY authors, SOOP hosts a series of Marketing Monday posts chock full of tips and tricks to getting your audience off the ground. For those of you looking for more active help, SOOP has several packages to help you with your Marketing Plan. Make sure to take a minute and check those out. Plus, the Service Marketplace offers a way for you authors to get in contact with people who can help you with your Product, Platform, and Promotion.

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.

FAQ of the day: Can you help me publish my raw manuscript?

We sure can! If you need help getting your manuscripts proofread, edited, reviewed and published, we can offer those services for hire through our Services Marketplace. 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).
