Author Driven Publishing

SOOP’s Author-Driven Book publishing model is revolutionary. It combines the best elements of both traditional and self publishing while taking advantage of social media and crowd sourcing. As an author, you not only have control over the process of landing a publishing contract, you earn much higher royalties than with traditional publishing. We call this brave new model author driven publishing, and it’s all about educating and empowering authors to gradually master what we call the “3 P’s” of publishing: Product, Platform, and Promotion.

Unlike vanity or subsidy publishing, SOOP authors avoid spending their own money or giving away rights in ways that they will regret. Unlike traditional commercial publishing, SOOP authors are in full control of the process and decisions at each step of the journey, in ways that ensure the fair distribution of risk and reward to all parties. Authors who submit their ideas to SOOP can walk away at any time prior to signing a contract, and they will take the benefits and publicity they’ve earned with them.

Traditionally Publish – Full Length Books

SOOP allows authors to crowdsource their readers before they publish though its innovative voting model:

  • Authors first submit a Book Idea, which is a basic book blurb explaining the concept of their book and why they are uniquely qualified to write it.
  • This Book Idea submission generates a Voting Page.
  • Then, authors share this voting page with their networks to generate votes.
  • What are votes? Votes are a first name, last name, and email address entered as an expression of interest in hearing more about an author’s Book Idea as it moves closer to publication.
  • An author needs 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.

Traditionally Publish – Short Stories

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. Anthology readers are serious consumers of literary gems, and a chance to sparkle in front of them is coveted among authors! SOOP’s Anthology Program is a pared down version of its Book Idea Program that is highly focused on building a team of 12-25 authors all working together with us to make their book a success.

Traditionally Publish – Anthologies

Do you have a network united by a common cause or a community of fellow authors whose works compliment each other? You might be a great candidate to curate a SOOP anthology. Curating an anthology is an excellent way to boost your name recognition and propel acknowledgement of your expertise in a particular subject to new heights. 

SOOP has developed a program that gives curators creative control while helping them guide authors’ energies more productively. SOOP also manages publication details for our curators while getting their valued input every step of the way. Curating an anthology with SOOP affords you these positives; increased name recognition and spreading a powerful message that matters to you, while alleviating many of the headaches intrinsic to compiling a book with 25-plus authors.
