Nine Genres in October Selection of Books from Independent Publishers

LOS ANGELES: Committed to introducing librarians to high-quality titles from the independent publishing sector, today LibraryBub announces its handpicked choice of eye-catching books for October.

Each of the selected publications has already been well received by readers and reviewers alike. Some have been given awards and many can be seen at the top of the bestseller lists for their category. All of the books are available on Amazon.

The author Neil Gaiman recalls his experience of librarians as a boy:

"They just seemed to like that there was this wide-eyed little boy who loved to read, and would talk to me about the books I was reading, they would find me other books in a series, they would help. They treated me as another reader - nothing less or more - which meant they treated me with respect. I was not used to being treated with respect as an 8-year-old."

LibraryBub CEO, Alinka Rutkowska, relishes the opportunity to provide librarians with a monthly introduction to new and exciting titles to whet the appetite of voracious readers like Neil. No matter what age or background the reader is, the librarian is always looking for something new to interest them - and so, too, is LibraryBub.

my book be included on their shelves. Thank you for this valuable service to self-published authors.
