Author-Driven Publishing

SOOP’s Author-Driven Publishing Model is revolutionary. It combines the best elements of both traditional and self-publishing, while taking advantage of social media and crowdsourcing, to educate and empower authors to gradually master the “3 P’s” of publishing: Product, Platform, and Promotion. As a result, authors come to understand the process of landing a publishing contract and the chances of earning much higher royalties than traditional publishing.

Unlike traditional commercial publishing, SOOP authors control the process and decisions at each step of the journey, ensuring the fair distribution of risk and reward to all parties. Authors who submit their ideas to SOOP can walk away at any time before signing a contract, and they will take the benefits and publicity they’ve earned with them.

Publish a Book

Something Or Other Publishing allows authors to crowdsource their readers before they publish through its innovative voting model:

  • Authors first submit a Book Idea with an introductory book blurb explaining the concept of their book and why they are uniquely qualified to write it.
  • Your Book Idea submission gets a Voting Landing Page to collect support.
  • Authors collect votes to qualify for publication.
  • Votes are a first name, last name, and email address entered to express interest in hearing more about an author’s Book Idea as it moves closer to publication.
  • An author collects 1,000 votes to earn a publishing contract with SOOP.
  • Along the way, we educate authors and help them prepare for publication with highly informative homework assignments.

Publish a Short Story

Publication in an anthology is a fantastic way to show your work to a wide range of readers who might not yet be familiar with your work. In addition, anthology readers are consumers of literary gems, and a chance to sparkle in front of them gets competitive among rising authors, especially with our Annual Short Story Contest.

SOOP’s Anthology Program focuses on bringing together groups of 12-25 proven writers with the common goal of working together to make the book a success and a timeless collection.
