LOS ANGELES, July 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- LibraryBub was founded in 2015 and 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 USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Alinka Rutkowska, the core commitment of LibraryBub, working with all major libraries, 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 July list of remarkable books by independent authors appears below. The featured publications have received critical acclaim and are already proving popular with readers. Some have already become Amazon best sellers in their particular categories. The very best of the selected books have achieved awards within the independent publishing sector. These books hold enormous potential for enhancing the lives of their readers. The poet Ted Hughes wrote of how
"Even the most unfitting child
who's chanced upon the library's worth
sits with the genius of the Earth
and turns the key to the whole world."
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.

"After LibraryBub's mailing, over a thousand librarians clicked through to my book," says LibraryBub author Rosemary A. Johns. "I'm a British fantasy author and so have no way to connect to American libraries. Alinka's service was exactly what I needed. I spent my teenage years avidly borrowing books from libraries or curled up in the corner of one; being able to share my books in libraries (as well as bookstores and online) is something I'm passionate about. This service made that possible in a big way."
