LOS ANGELES, Sept. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- LibraryBub is the industry's first service dedicated to connecting indie and small-press authors with 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 for four years, 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 September list of praiseworthy books by self-publishing authors appears below. The featured publications have been well received by critics and are already proving popular with readers. 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. Bestselling novelist Amanda Hampson recalls that "growing up in the country, our family visits to the municipal library in town were a looked- forward-to event. Money was tight and we didn't have television, so books were our portal to the wider world... I still remember the sense of anticipation as we drove through the darkening countryside towards the golden world of the library… I was devoted to reading. I read in bed, in the bath, while I did chores and instead of doing chores. I loved being lost in worlds beyond my imagining. It was reading that inspired my dream of being an author. I wanted to be able to articulate a story and delight readers in the way that these books delighted me." 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.
