LOS ANGELES, April 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Founded in 2015, LibraryBub is the industry's first service, dedicated to making strong, mutual 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 the LibraryBub service, 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 April list of praiseworthy books by self-publishing authors appears below. The selected publications have met with the approval of independent critics and are already proving popular with devotees and newfound readers alike. Some have impressively 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 Kim Liggett recalls the central place of the library in her small-town upbringing. "I loved everything about it... It was my window to the outside world, both real and imagined, where I could be anything I wanted to be... I could be brave and ruthless, terrifying and wise. Eventually, I left that small town and traveled the world. I think it was that early exposure to such a wide variety of books that gave me the courage to become the heroine of my own story," said Liggett. 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.

"LibraryBub targeted libraries for one of my bestsellers," says LibraryBub author Gregg Michaelsen. He fully appreciates the benefits of the connection between self-publishing authors and librarians, revealing how he "could not imagine trying to research and contact all the libraries in the U.S. and request that [his] book be included on their shelves." For him, "it's a time saver and… a money maker too!"
