#SOOP on Sunday: Top 30 Book Ideas for August 2019

As SOOP’s exciting summer of new ideas and blossoming partnerships comes to a close, we are happy to share with you this past month’s TOP 30 Book Ideas for August.

“You sit down, I say. You try to sit down at approximately the same time every day. This is how you train your unconscious to kick in for you creatively. So you sit down at, say, nine every morning, or ten every night.”Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

As all of you know, forcing oneself to sit down every day to write is challenging – sometimes seemingly impossible. Just as you can train yourself to sit down at the same place at the same time each day, you can also train your subconscious – or maybe your muse – to show up for you at that same time every day.

As many great writers will attest to the value of a strict writing routine, they will also advocate for a strong support system, whether it be by way of a spouse or a mentor. SOOP is here to be a part of your support system: just short of sitting you down at your writing table every day, SOOP can help you with just about everything else. If you’ve already submitted a Book Idea or Short Story Idea, explore the ways SOOP can further support your goal, and if you’re still considering submitting an idea, allow the following ideas to further inspire you as you kick off your fall season.

Please take a look at these Book Ideas and Short Story Ideas that highlight how our model works and how to find success within it. Please vote for the Ideas you like. A vote only takes ten seconds but brings an author that much closer to his or her dream.

This Month At A Glance.

For another month, Short Story Ideas dominated the top lists, accounting for nearly two-thirds of the month’s TOP 30. With the addition of the anthology “Women Write Now: Women in Trauma,” SOOP is providing even more avenues for authors to reach new audiences. 

You may click HERE to see how our Anthology Program works and where you can join this list to obtain the courtesy promotion that accompanies securing a spot in the anthology.

How do I Make the Top 30?

The Top 30 is our weekly culmination of the Hot 20 lists. By formulating the number of votes a Book Idea receives and how quickly the Book Idea received those votes, along with a few more details from the past month, we are able to determine the order and placement of the Top 30. There are a few ways to help you make it on both lists.

For DIY authors, SOOP hosts Marketing Monday, a series of posts chock full of tips and tricks for boosting your audience from the ground. For those looking for interactive help, SOOP offers several packages designed to help with your Marketing Plan. Take a minute and check them out. Plus, the Service Marketplace connects you with people who can help with your Product, Platform, and Promotion.

We Want to Work With You

Everyone at SOOP will help you work toward your success. When you submit your Book Idea, you can choose one of two ways to reach your publishing goal: Free or Premium Levels. At each stage of the voting process, SOOP’s Free Level assigns homework, which helps you not only make substantial progress in marketing your work, but also helps you develop the best book possible. SOOP manages your homework in phases and returns your homework on a pass/fail basis.

SOOP’s Premium Level also assigns homework with a required 85% passing grade, ensuring you understand the curriculum before proceeding. In addition to a higher standard for your homework, our panel of experts provides personalized feedback, arming you with more information and allowing you to adjust course when necessary.

For more information on the Free and Premium Levels, please read the FAQ, including information on costs. And also feel free to contact us with questions.

Our Services Marketplace offers proofreading, editing, reviewing, and publishing for your manuscripts. If you reach 2,000 valid votes via our author-driven model, you can even earn Services Marketplace offerings free of charge. Submit your book idea here, and regardless of the level you choose, you can build your audience and anticipate orders from the participants who voted for your Book Idea(s).
