#SOOP on Monday: Top 20 Short Story & Book Ideas for November


We are thrilled to unveil November’s best Short Story and Book ideas with a call for submissions!

Congratulations to these writers for leveraging this exciting opportunity to get their stories published. At SOOP, we are on the lookout for the most captivating short stories and compelling book ideas to bring to life. Creativity has the power to enchant readers, and we want to be the platform that helps creative people build organic success and a lasting legacy.

We are currently looking for two types of submissions:

Engaging Short Stories

Do you have a short story that lingers in the reader’s mind long after they’ve turned the last page? We’re seeking tales that captivate, surprise, and leave a lasting impression!

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. 

Compelling Book Ideas

Have you conceptualized a book that explores new realms, challenges perspectives, or offers a unique take on familiar themes? We want to find stories that have the potential to become timeless literary gems!

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.

5 Tips to Attract Prospective Readers

  1. Craft a synopsis that sparks curiosity and leaves readers eager to explore more.
  2. Highlight the unique elements that set your story apart when generating social media content.
  3. Leverage authors and writers’ groups on platforms like Facebook and Instagram for cross-marketing opportunities to get exposure from their readerships.
  4. Engage in everyday conversations that can lead to discussions about your writing endeavors.
  5. Consider sharing a sneak peek of your stories or bonus content with your initial supporters.

Enjoy this opportunity to share your unique voice with the world. We are eagerly awaiting your submissions and can’t wait to embark on this literary journey with you. Let your stories shine, and together, let’s create unforgettable reading experiences!
