LOS ANGELES, Dec. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- LibraryBub is the industry's first service dedicated to making vibrant connections between indie and small-press authors and an extensive network of libraries. Imbued with the enthusiasm and ambition of its founder, the bestselling author Alinka Rutkowska, the core commitment of LibraryBub, which has been working with all major libraries since 2015, is to help librarians to identify acclaimed books from the independent publishing sector. Offering an extensive range of outreach and output, Rutkowska enables thousands of emerging authors to achieve publishing success.
The December list of praiseworthy books by self-publishing authors appears below. The selected publications are highly regarded by independent critics and are quickly proving popular with devotees and newfound readers alike. Some have already become Amazon best sellers in their particular categories. The cream of the selected books are award winners within the independent publishing sector. LibraryBub introduces thousands of librarians to bestselling and award-winning books from the independent publishing sector. These books hold immense potential for enhancing the lives of their readers. Novelist Sandra Cisneros reveals how the library introduced her to something she didn't know she needed as a child. She recalls, "My house was filled with the frenzy of nine people, most of them under the age of 5... I could not believe a building existed where talking was outlawed! In my home, if you didn't shout, you didn't get heard. But here was a house of books, quiet as sunlight; a place where I could read and think, and most importantly, nurture my imagination... The world easily overwhelms me. I first noticed I needed silence when I made my first visit to the library." Librarians enable writers to make that kind of difference to people's lives and LibraryBub CEO Alinka Rutkowska is delighted to support them in that role.
