LOS ANGELES, June 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
LibraryBub is a service that helps thousands of librarians to discover bestselling and award-winning books from the independent publishing sector. It was founded in 2016 by international bestselling author Alinka Rutkowska. As a successful indie author, she helps thousands of other authors achieve self-publishing success through her books, newsletters, courses and coaching. LibraryBub works with all major libraries and is the industry's first service connecting indie and small-press authors with libraries.
Its core commitment is to help librarians to select exceptional books from the independent publishing sector.
The June list of outstanding books by self-publishing authors appears below. The featured publications have been praised both by readers and critics while some have quickly become Amazon best sellers in their categories. Many of these books have been recognized with awards within the independent publishing sector. Moreover, these books are already shaping the lives of their readers. Crime writer Val McDermid recalls her upbringing in relative poverty, "While it was very much understood that the way to a better life was through education, books were a luxury we couldn't afford." She then points to what transformed the situation: "When I was 6, we actually moved opposite the central library and that became my home away from home." Librarians can make that kind of difference in people's lives and LibraryBub CEO Alinka Rutkowska is eager to support them in that role. "Libraries are hubs for societal and personal development. Lives take entirely new directions because of the impact of libraries and it excites me to know that the books we recommend are part of something so influential and important," she says.
