LOS ANGELES, Aug. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- LibraryBub was founded 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. Booker Prize winner Bernardino Evaristo recalls her childhood visits to the library in London. "I read Thor Heyerdahl about his travels in the South Pacific. I was a child growing up in boring suburban Woolwich; we never had any money and didn't go on holiday, so to read about these places and adventures was mind-opening. Books opened the world to 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 standout books by self-publishing authors appears below. The selected publications have impressed independent critics and have been enthusiastically received by devotees and newfound readers alike. Some have already become Amazon best sellers in their particular categories. Furthermore, several of the books have won awards within the independent publishing sector.

"After writing my first book, I received dozens of calls from companies that wanted thousands upon thousands of dollars to market my book with no guarantee of success," inspirational author Shawn Ward recalls. He turned to LibraryBub. "Alinka and her team were able to get me in front of several news outlets and promote my book to 40 other countries within two weeks with huge success!" He's now able to say he's an award-winning author. "I get to have my book promoted worldwide because of the leveraged connections and hustle of the Leaders Press team."
