LOS ANGELES, Aug. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- LibraryBub, an industry first, was 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 USA Today bestselling author Alinka Rutkowska, the core commitment of the LibraryBub service, which has been working with all major libraries for more than 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 August list of remarkable books by self-publishing authors appears below. The selected publications have been enthusiastically received by independent critics and are already proving popular with devotees and newfound readers alike. Some have already become Amazon best sellers in their particular categories, while the jewels among 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. Breakthrough novelist Akwaeke Emezi recalls, "I started reading and writing my own stories when I was about 4 or 5, and every adult in my life encouraged it heavily. They gave me books, they let me spend hours in the library, they bought me more books, and made sure reading was an organic part of my life. It was — in retrospect— such a gift they gave me." Librarians enable writers to make that kind of difference to people's lives and LibraryBub CEO Alinka Rutkowska considers it a privilege to support them in that role.
