#SOOP on Monday: Top 20 Short Story & Book Ideas for April 24, 2023

Let’s start a new Monday by presenting the Top 20 Short Story & Book Ideas at SOOP.

Something or Other Publishing’s author program shapes the publishing industry’s future through an open-ended submission process involving broader interaction between the author, publisher, and their supporters.

In SOOP’s Author-Driven Publishing Model, authors submit their story ideas and solicit feedback while readers pledge to support and vote for their favorites.

Authors who come through SOOP’s program emerge with the tools they need to sell their books. Our process focuses on educating and empowering authors to master production, platform, and promotion because we recognize that an author’s work doesn’t end when their manuscript is complete. As authors achieve the voting milestone required for contest eligibility, they receive guidance and benefits and complete related check-in activities.

It’s our pleasure to recognize the fantastic work of these authors. They are demonstrating their capabilities and why they are worthy of being published. So, let’s keep motivating them and be part of the process to get them published while you can enter our Weekly Book Giveaway!
