·4 min read

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- LibraryBub, founded in 2015 by bestselling author Alinka Rutkowska, is 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. "What I loved the best were what we call fantasies, but I called them magic books," novelist Gregory Maguire recalls. "Stories like The Wizard of Oz and Peter Pan I fell upon with the cry of someone seeing their relative from the old country. I quickly realized that magic books gave me the most satisfaction. I loved being forced to look at things in a new way… Being challenged by possibility was a bridge to maturity, a bridge to becoming an artist, and it was what I loved the most when I went to the library." 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 remarkable 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. It's exciting to see that several of the books have won awards within the independent publishing sector.
