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

As we enter the second week of autumn, SOOP is building collaborations with a new publishing partner, as well as with our authors in promoting their works. Perhaps as a preview of the works that SOOP will be promoting a year from now, we are glad to share with you this past month’s TOP 30 Book and Story Ideas for September.

“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.” ― Louis L’Amour

It is a bit of a paradox, but most writers agree writing begets writing. The trick is starting. Once you’ve disciplined yourself to sit down and start typing or start writing longhand, the words magically arrive – the ideas flow. SOOP can help writers with weekly rituals involving homework assignments and, of course, the opportunity to promote and market one’s work by way of the voting process. If you’re considering submitting a Book or Story Idea, allow the following ideas to further inspire you as the fourth quarter of our year prompts us to work on our writing.

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.

With 24 new contenders on the TOP 30 this past month, SOOP authors are heating up the competition. The SOOP Anthology Program accounts for more than half of the list, including three Story Ideas for “Women Write Now: Women in Trauma.” The Anthology Program provides even more avenues for authors to reach new audiences.

How do I Make the Top 30?

The Top 30 is our monthly culmination of the Hot 20 lists. By formulating the number of votes a Story Idea or Book Idea receives and how quickly the Story Idea or 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).
