LOS ANGELES, October 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

LibraryBub is a service that introduces thousands of librarians to bestselling and award-winning books from the independent publishing sector. Founded in 2015, LibraryBub works with all major libraries and 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 is to help librarians to identify acclaimed books from the independent publishing sector.

The November list of remarkable books by self-publishing authors appears below. The featured publications have been well received both by readers and critics while some have already become Amazon best sellers in their categories. Many of these books have achieved awards within the independent publishing sector. Moreover, these books are already enhancing the lives of their readers. Acclaimed novelist Jean M. Auel tells about her portal into writing fiction: "I got the idea for the story of a young woman living with people who were different late one cold winter night in January 1977, but I don't know where it came from. I had never written fiction, though I had been reading it all my life. I discovered when I sat down to try it, that it was fun, except I didn't know what I was writing about. I had never studied archaeology or anthropology. I knew how to find out, though. Libraries are wonderful. They started me on a remarkable odyssey that I'm still in the midst of. They opened my eyes to the fascinating story of our Ice Age ancestors… and they gave me the means to learn how to tell it with books on how to write fiction." 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. "Libraries are hubs for societal and personal development. Lives take entirely new directions because of the impact of libraries and it excites me to know that the books we recommend are part of something so influential and important," she says. Rutkowska helps thousands of emerging authors achieve success through her books, newsletters, courses, coaching and her publishing house Leaders Press.

"I'm a British fantasy author and so have no way to connect to American libraries," says LibraryBub author Rosemary A. Johns. "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."
