Vote for Your Favorite Book Ideas

In the SOOP publishing model, authors submit their book ideas and readers vote for the ones they’d like to see published. What do we mean by “vote?” Well, a vote for a SOOP book idea is more than a passive “Like.” It is an indication of genuine interest in the book or the author and a request to receive updates. There is no commitment to purchase, but it does express a willingness to receive an offer to purchase the book when it becomes available.  The voting policy can be summed up as “one person, one vote, entered personally by that voter or with their express consent.” This means a level playing field and fair play. So readers, please vote accordingly (you can vote for as many book ideas as you want). And authors, please structure your pitches for votes with this in mind, so as not to mislead your potential audience. With that out of the way, let’s get to it. Readers: would you have voted for Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code while it was still just a concept? Toni Morrison’s Beloved? What about Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight or E. L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey? Well, now’s your chance to be an early supporter of the books of the future. SOOP authors submit their book ideas here, where readers peruse them and vote to pledge their support.

Vote here and help deserving authors bring their ideas to life!
