LOS ANGELES, May 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- LibraryBub is an industry first. Founded in 2015, it is 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 May list of notable 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 already become Amazon best sellers in their particular categories. Moreover, the cream of the selected books have won 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 immense potential for enhancing the lives of their readers. Acclaimed novelist Jewell Parker Rhodes recalls, "I inhaled books, blowing through them as fast as the librarians could give them to me… While there weren't many diverse books when I was growing up, character-driven stories opened new landscapes, new possibilities for living, and deepened my empathy… Reading widely helped me to understand that I too had a narrative. Reading widely, I was encouraged to write inclusive, celebratory narratives." 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.
