LOS ANGELES, Jan. 3, 2022

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- LibraryBub was established in 2015 by bestselling author Alinka Rutkowska. An industry first, 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, it works in conjunction with all major libraries. The core commitment of the LibraryBub service 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.

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. Celebrated author KateDiCamillo recalls her childhood of reading. "I read everything I could get my hands on… I worshiped the librarian at the public library who allowed me to check out as many books as I wanted at a time (the official limit was four at a time, but she waived it for 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.

This month's list of notable books by self-publishing authors appears below. The selected publications have impressed independent critics and have also been enthusiastically received by devotees and newfound readers alike. Some of them have already become Amazon best sellers in their particular categories. It's exciting to see that several of the books have won awards within the independent publishing sector.

"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!"
