LOS ANGELES, March 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Founded in 2015, LibraryBub is the industry's first service dedicated to connecting indie and small-press authors with libraries. Imbued with the enthusiasm and ambition of its founder, the 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. Through a broad range of outreach and output, Rutkowska enables thousands of emerging authors to achieve publishing success.
The March list of outstanding books by self-publishing and small press 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 categories. Many of these books have achieved awards within the independent publishing sector. LibraryBub introduces thousands of librarians to bestselling and award-winning books from the independent publishing sector. These books hold enormous potential for enhancing the lives of their readers. The English screenwriter David Quantick recalls, "When I was a child, I lived in libraries. There were books for children my age, books I'd go and investigate that clearly weren't for children my age — science fiction and comedy and horror... Libraries contain worlds and I was a space traveller."

"LibraryBub is a great click-and-forget option when it comes to accessing libraries," says medical author Judson Somerville. "Most don't realize how critical libraries are to increasing the exposure of your book. Far more people go to libraries than go to bookstores. I really appreciate that LibraryBub frees me to work on other areas knowing that the important area of libraries is taken care of for me."
