#SOOP on Monday: Top 20 Short Stories & Book Ideas for November 14, 2022

It’s a new Monday, which means a new top 20 with the week’s Best Short Stories & Book Ideas seeking publication.

Anyone on a reader scale, from book lovers to advanced reviewers and fans of independent talent, is welcome to play a crucial role in the journey of our rising writers as they seek to become published authors.

Voting for their stories will provide a significant push to make them eligible for a contract publication, and your support can make you a lucky winner of a free book!

How does it work?

It’s simple! You can support your favorite authors by placing a vote in their stories, a sign of interest in reading the story in print. Your vote enters the weekly drawing of SOOP’s Book Giveaway Program, and if you are lucky, you’ll receive an email notification learning you won. We announce winners every Wednesday!
