#SOOP on Monday: Top 20 Short Stories & Book Ideas for October 23, 2023


Start your week on a high note as we delve into the week’s most captivating tales! We’re thrilled to welcome a fresh wave of authors into our weekly top 20 rankings, and we’re here to celebrate their remarkable progress.

Our Author-Driven Publishing Model is nothing short of a game-changer as it seamlessly blends the best of traditional and self-publishing, harnessing the power of social media and the wisdom of the public to empower our authors. Our mission is simple: guide you through the “3 P’s” of publishing—Product, Platform, and Promotion, equipping you with the knowledge and tools to conquer the publishing world.

These talented authors have demonstrated unwavering dedication and unleashed their creativity, and we’re eagerly standing by to champion their journey toward publication. Our interactive voting system allows them to connect with potential readers as votes mirror their genuine interest in your stories and possible books. It’s a fantastic opportunity to rally supporters, gain insights into their expectations, and strive for even greater heights as you advance.

We extend a warm invitation to all talented writers to ask any questions you may have about our model. Whether you’re curious about the process, seeking insights into our interactive voting program, or have any other inquiries, we’re here to help you succeed.

Kudos to these incredible writers for their outstanding work, and let’s continue this journey together towards achieving publishing excellence!

How to Make the Top 20?

Gather as many votes as possible by learning how to use SOOP’s Crowdsourcing Model successfully.

Book Writers

When you submit your Book Idea, you can choose one of two ways to reach your publishing goal: Free or Premium. At each stage of the voting process, our Free Level assigns homework, which helps you not only make substantial progress in marketing your work, but also helps you develop the best story possible. SOOP manages your homework in phases and returns your homework on a pass/fail basis.

SOOP’s Premium Certification Program 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 the course when necessary.

Short Story Writers

SOOP’s Anthology Program has been increasingly successful, garnering excellent reviews and critical acclaim. You can enter the program by submitting a story to the anthologies we have under production, or by participating in our Annual Short Story Contest, our flagship program to turn talented writers into established authors.
