Reading puts you at peace. If you haven’t yet experienced that feeling, grab a book, take a deep breath & get started.”

George R.R. Martin

How do I make the Top 20?

The Top 20 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 can 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 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).
