LOS ANGELES, July 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

LibraryBub, founded in 2015 by international bestselling author Alinka Rutkowska, is a service that helps thousands of librarians to discover bestselling and award-winning books from the independent publishing sector. LibraryBub works with all major libraries and is the industry's first service connecting indie and small-press authors with libraries. The core commitment of LibraryBub is to help librarians to identify acclaimed books from the independent publishing sector.

The August list of outstanding 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. Award-winning novelist Anita Shreve, who died earlier this year, spoke about how she got interested in books. "I got hit by the bug of reading not via a person but via the one-room library in our small town," she explained. "I remember that the children's books were in the right-hand corner near the floor." She could easily picture the place that had so strongly shaped her. Librarians can make that kind of difference to people's lives and LibraryBub CEO Alinka Rutkowska is delighted to support them in that role. "It's very exciting to think of the cycle that is at work in libraries - the role of librarians in promoting books by present-day authors is instrumental in enthusiastic young readers growing up to be the next generation of authors. The future is in safe hands," she says. Rutkowska helps thousands of emerging authors achieve self-publishing success through her books, newsletters, courses and coaching.
