#SOOP on Sundays: Top 20 popular book ideas for October 14, 2019

We have our new TOP 20 Book Ideas and Story Ideas for the week of October 7th to October 13th, 2019.

“The first draft is just you telling yourself the story.” ― Terry Pratchett

Many authors have made similar statements regarding the first draft. Perhaps knowing no one else will read what you’re writing takes some of the pressure off. Or maybe it’s easier to write when your only goal is to tell yourself the story. And possibly you’re a natural storyteller while you also enjoy a good story, making it a win-win. However you choose to view your first draft, you’ll know that it really is just you and your story in the beginning. And as you follow the path your story takes you, enjoy the process. You’ll have plenty of time for editing and reviewing much later in your journey.

While we wait for your second or third draft, SOOP and SOOP readers will support your idea as you work on it. And if you’re looking for inspiration, please see the list of Book Ideas and Story Ideas below, and while you’re there, vote for the ideas you like.

How Do I Make the Top 20?

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

How about an Anthology Idea? SOOP is already supporting several curators with anthologies. Maybe your Anthology Idea could be next…? Curating an anthology can be a powerful way to build your brand and to connect with people who share your cause.

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).
