About the Author

SOOP’s Author-Driven Book publishing model is revolutionary. It combines the best elements of both traditional and independent publishing while taking advantage of social media and crowd sourcing. Our authors control the process of platform building, contracting, and development, and they earn higher royalties than with other publishing houses. We call this new model author driven publishing, and it’s all about educating and empowering authors to realize their own goals of success.

  1. Jay Luster

    If Earth were snubbed out of the cosmos, would the cosmos even notice? That is the stunning question Leah Reise has challenged us with in “The Irony Of Everything. While she wisely avoids religious assumptions, she doesn’t shy away from spirituality. Would you, in those brief final moments of your existence, want to be alone, or would you prefer to gather at the bonfire with all your loved ones? Or would you perhaps choose to spend those precious seconds dangling from life’s tether in the arms of honesty, forgiveness, and love? The irony is, as she deftly concludes, that even when nothing of our existence survives, the simple fact that we existed at all is both a miracle, and matters. It’s easy to see why she won the SOOP Dystopian Short Story Grand Prize in 2021.
