USA National Bestselling Authors are raving about LibraryBub!
Discover how YOU can get your indie or small-press book into libraries without worrying about gatekeepers!

You've written an outstanding book. You're successfully selling it online and you may have even won awards, but you've had no luck getting it into libraries. Despite all your efforts to connect with a publisher, get pre-publication book reviews in library journals, and appear on vendors lists, you're not any closer to getting on the shelf than you were before you wrote the first chapter!

 

Like everyone, you've hoped against hope that your print-on-demand company would come through on its promise to make your books available to libraries. But they haven't sold a single copy, and you have no way to contact U.S. libraries on your own.

 

But now, what seemed like a hopeless situation has a light at the end of the tunnel…

What if you could connect with libraries around the country without lifting a finger? How would you feel if readers throughout the nation could check out your book and spread the word to friends, family, and fellow book lovers?

ENTER LIBRARYBUB

A service that does for indie and small-press what the Big 5 publishers do for traditionally published authors.

We email around 10,000 libraries and tell them about your book and where to buy it.

Here's what LibraryBub does for you:

  1. Your book is prominently featured in our newsletter to 10,000 libraries
  2. We provide a blurb, purchase links, and our endorsement
  3. We encourage libraries to purchase your book
  4. Your book ends up in libraries throughout the U.S.

Even if you had the contacts for 10,000 libraries, it would take around 500 hours to send those emails. That's eight hours a day for THREE WHOLE MONTHS! How much are three months of work worth to you?

Let us take that task off your plate and get you some RESULTS!

  • LibraryBub will get your book into libraries across the U.S.
  • Readers will borrow your book, read it, and spread the word
  • Word of mouth will generate more sales through a variety of channels

If you want more sales without spending hundreds of hours trying to do it yourself, then LibraryBub is the answer you've been looking for.

Your book will also be featured in LibraryBub's monthly PRESS RELEASE when you buy today!

We've partnered with PR Newswire (the #1 global content distribution network).

Every month we publish a release which announces our recommended books for the upcoming month.

 

What does it mean for you?

  • Your book title is displayed on hundreds of websites and seen by thousands of visitors (our recent release was picked up by 213 sites and viewed 2,054 times).
  • The news about your book is delivered to journalists around the world.
  • Where applicable, depending on network pick-up, you can proudly announce that your book was seen on NBC, CBS and Fox (our recent release was displayed by NBC2, CBS8, Fox19) among multitudes of others.
  • You’re able to use logos of sites that picked up your release on your website, in your email address, in your marketing materials just like this:

All you need to do to get started is to scroll up, input your details and click on the 'PLACE ORDER NOW' button right now!


At LibraryBub, we believe talented authors like you deserve to have your books read by the public. That's why we're not charging full price for the service. We're not doing this for people with a ton of money to throw around to get their subpar book onto the shelves.

 

We're doing it for you at a fraction of the cost!

 

Here's how we proceed from here:

  • Click the 'PLACE ORDER NOW' button at the top-right to send your one-time payment
  • After your payment has been processed, you'll be directed to a page to send us a blurb, purchase links, and other information
  • Our editorial team will carefully evaluate your book
  • Within 48 hours, we'll either select your book and get started, or send you a refund
  • If your book is selected, we'll tell 10,000 libraries about your book and feature it in our upcoming press release!

USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHORS ARE RAVING ABOUT LIBRARYBUB!

To gain exposure like this, is what every self-published author dreams of! Having our books considered by libraries only expands our opportunities to reach new readers everywhere! LibraryBub’s plan to reach them is an invaluable service and every author who is considering this service should jump on board without reservations! Thank you, LibaryBub! This service exceeded my expectations! -S.L. Morgan USA Today Bestselling Author

I am so thrilled that I decided to put my book in the hands of LibraryBub. It has led to incredible exposure and has gotten my books coverage through moguls like Fox and abc. I am excited to see where this will lead, it has certainly opened doors. -S McPherson USA Today Bestselling Author

I was thrilled to see my book on ABC and Fox News! Wow! Many people propose to help get your book out there but not everyone delivers. Alinka really came through with my book and got it on major news networks. I was totally blown away, thrilled. Will definitely continue to use her services. Thank you! -Esly Carvalho, Ph.D

PenPower Book Marketing Services has worked with LibraryBub on at least 6 titles and authors we represent and we are very happy with the results. We could not have reached more librarians without the unique service LibraryBub offers. Alinka’s service has helped our authors gain momentum which inevitably lead to more visibility, interest and sales. We experienced great click-thru results on Amazon! We know of no other way to reach so many libraries across the country. LibraryBub continues to be my go-to source to reach librarians! -Jeanie C. Williams Director, PenPower Book Marketing Services

Anytime my books can get in front of readers is a good day. Anytime my books can be seen by librarians is a fantastic day. The more people who know about my book, “Fractured Not Broken”, the more books I’ll sell. LibraryBub is a great marketing tool that increased the visibility of my books and boosted sales. -Michelle Weidenbenner author of "Fractured Not Broken: a Memoir"

LibraryBub has increased my sales and exposure far beyond my expectations.  Only two (yes 2) days after the LibraryBub email was sent out, I began receiving notes from several libraries thanking me for this service informing them of my book (“From the Kitchens of Pancho Villa”)….and they purchased it!  Libraries are an unusual and unique market, LibraryBub has what it takes to break into that market.  LibraryBub has done just what they said they would. If you are an Indie author, you need this service! Thank you LibraryBub! -Karina Ann Betlem author of "From the Kitchens of Pancho Villa"

When the email was sent out to librarians, my book (“Four Quadrant Living: Making Healthy Living Your New Way of Life”) had an 18% click rate. That’s extraordinary in email marketing. My book received over 400 clicks, which means that hundreds of librarians were interested in my book. I thought it was a big win to get my book into my local library. I’m very excited about the possibility of my book being in even more libraries across the country. LibraryBub helped make this happen for me! -Dina Colman author of "Four Quadrant Living: Making Healthy Living Your New Way of Life"

I was absolutely floored by the results of LibraryBub’s first mailing to librarians, a mailing that included my literary fiction novel “he & She”. Nearly 300 librarians clicked on my book to get more information. I would have been happy with just a handful of clicks. Alinka Rutkowska is definitely opening doors for authors. -Wayne Clark author of "he & She"

After spending weeks doing a local library mailing, I considered doing a nation-wide library promotion but found the time commitment daunting. When I received Alinka’s LibraryBub offer, I was thrilled to hire her to do the work at a reasonable cost. Thanks, Alinka! -Ruth Hull Chatlien author of "The Ambitious Madame Bonaparte"

Wow, those are really impressive results. I’ll definitely be using LibraryBub again. -Alexandra Sokoloff author of "Huntress Moon (The Huntress/FBI Thrillers Book 1)"

Some people promise a lot and deliver very little. Some people promise a lot and deliver exactly what they claim. Alinka and LibraryBub need to be lumped at the top of the latter category. -Steve Kohlhagen author of "Where They Bury You, A Novel"

I really appreciate the opportunity to use LibraryBub, which I found to be highly professional and responsive at all times. The follow-up data is very useful – it’s exciting to know how many librarians wanted more information about my books! Thank you for providing this excellent and unique service to authors. -Cynthia Port author of "Kibble Talk"

There was a marked spike in my book sales on Amazon after the LibraryBub  promotion. Good job! -David Pereda author of "However Long the Night"

LibraryBub exposed my novel to sources previously inaccessible to me, and at a reasonable cost, placed my novel, Hush in the Storm, in the hands of readers in libraries across the nation. It targets the folks who love to read and is well worth the cost. -Julie B Cosgrove author of "Hush in the Storm"

The professionalism and librarian outreach by LibraryBub has far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Alinka Rutkowska’s services! Money well spent! -Donna M. McDine author of "Dee and Deb, Off They Go: Kindergarten First Day Jitters"

This is  the second  time I have signed onto a mailing with your Librarybub. As Author-Illustrator of  a book which has now won four awards for Best Book, I am honored to have been featured  with a  limited number of other outstanding authors. The results from interested libraries has been excellent at a very reasonable cost, requiring no effort on my part to reach 10,000 acquisition librarians. -Betty Shubert author of "OUT-of-STYLE: A Modern Perspective of How, Why and When Vintage Fashions Evolved"

Many thanks to LibraryBub to link my book, My Ladybird Story, to librarians whom wouldn’t have heard of my book. Such exposure is a dream for most self-published authors like myself. This invaluable service is truly a God send, go try it for your book ASAP. -Magus Tor

Working with Library Bub was such a fun and easy experience. Getting into libraries is important to an author’s success so what Alinka is doing is invaluable. I was super happy with the results and would highly recommend this service. -Sarah Noffke

As an author, my partnership with LibraryBub has been a rewarding experience. Results were quick and productive. LibraryBub is an excellent investment. Thank you for your attention to my novel.  -Connie Chappell

Thanks for the exposure, Alinka. […] It was well worth the investment, far more effective than some of the other marketing approaches I’ve taken. -Bob Moseley

This was soooo easy, listed and poof, there it was!  Promoted to tons of people. Love it and thank you so much! -Randi Goodman

I am thrilled to have found an easy and effective way to get my book into the hands of interested libraries. It’s an inspiring, come-of-age story for school-age kids and I could never find a resource to reach that audience. LibraryBub was able to accomplish that quickly. Many thanks to Alinka for all the hard work. -Ken White

I am amazed at how LibraryBub increased my book’s discoverability.  -Lenita Sheridan

The LibraryBub newsletter got great open and click rates – thousands of librarians saw my book, and I’m looking forward to increased sales and visibility as a result. -Jenni Wiltz

LibraryBub is the most cost-effective advertising decision I have made in three years, helping get my books in front of readers. In just a few days, nearly a thousand librarians checked out my book! Those results were better than advertisements placed with top competitors. Alinka Rutkowska gives the answer for every author searching for a nation-wide, library promotion service. Thank you for saving me hours of laborious work, and letting me get back to writing. -Joshua Robertson

Like most Indie authors, book marketing and discoverability are my biggest challenges. It’s good to meet professionals who can provide tangible results and Alinka did just that. This experience increased my discoverability as the newsletter got great open and click rates. It’s too soon to provide sales information, but I’m delighted with the results so far. -Debbie McEwan

Once again, Alinka Rutkowska was true to her word. LibraryBub not only provided thousands of librarians with information about my children’s book, but Alinka took it several steps further! She included my book in her newsletter as well as in a press release which was picked up by NBC, CBS and FOX!! Great exposure for a very reasonable cost. You’re the best Alinka! Thanks for the numerous opportunities you offer to authors! -Patti Tingen

Those are great stats and I am very pleased to know my link was clicked nearly eight hundred times  and that the newsletters were opened by librarians 6920 times! That’s awesome exposure. I am happy with the results thus far and that  the newsletter got great open and click rates. -Sheldon D. Newton

We’re new to LibraryBub, so we weren’t sure what to expect when we decided to feature “Wide as the Wind” by Edward Stanton. We were pleasantly surprised by a very high open and click rate, which will translate into increased discoverability and more sales over time. We’ve already seen a bump in the Amazon ranking, which is always great news for publishers and authors. -Jennifer Geist, Publisher Open Books Press

After LibraryBub’s mailing, over a thousand librarians clicked through to my book Blood Dragons. I’m a British fantasy author and so have no way to connect to American libraries. Alinka’s service was exactly what I needed. I spent my teenage years avidly borrowing books from libraries or curled up in the corner of one; being able to share my books in libraries (as well as bookstores and online) is something I’m passionate about. This service made that possible in a big way. -Rosemary A Johns

I am amazed at the very high rate of times someone opened the newsletter and the number of times the Amazon link to my book, Abbey’s Search for Sanctuary, was clicked.  That is fantastic exposure!  Thank you so much. -Eris F. Perese

Overall, my exposure and discoverability soared with LibraryBub, and I was happily surprised with the open and click rates! -Ashley Lucero

I am having amazing results from LibraryBub.  I am so extremely pleased about this, even while changing my hardcover from a case wrapped book to one with a dust jacket, I’ve had increased sales.  These stats, too, are amazing. -Sandra Ann Heath

Alinka’s newsletter targeted at libraries is a time saver and a money maker.  I could not imagine trying to research all the libraries in the US and do a letter campaign to request that my book be included on their shelves.  The LibraryBub newsletter has great open and click rates […] Thank you, Alinka, for this valuable service to self published authors. -Katie Weiser

I am so happy that I increased my discoverability and was pleased the newsletter got great open and click rates.  I couldn’t have done this myself, as it would be very time consuming and inefficient. -Laura Rivkin, CHHC, CPT

LibraryBub is a wonderful tool for garnering exposure before an audience to which I, as an independent author, might not normally have readily access. It was particularly helpful to receive statistics from Alinka Rutkowska and her team following the LibraryBub newsletters’ release. The statistics allowed me to gain a sense of how my writing resonates within the library science field. I am pleased to report the findings were positive and recommend LibraryBub to any author who seeks to expand the reach of his or her audience. -R.J. Tolson

The LibraryBub newsletter is the best money I have spent so far to promote my novel, resulting in almost 500 Amazon link clicks. I am also thrilled by the added bonus of The Timekeeper’s Son being featured on CBS AND NBC. -Sara Baker

You have completely blown me out of the water with the work you did to help me promote my book.  I am forever grateful and did not realize all you would be doing for me.  I am totally pleased and will beg you to please let me know if something else comes up with you..  I would love to work with you again and thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything.  I am so happy and pleased right now. -Marguerite Nardone Gruen

LibraryBub targeted libraries for one of my best sellers – It’s a time saver and [...] it’s a money maker too!  I could not imagine trying to research and contact all the libraries in the US and request that my book be included on their shelves.  Thank you, Alinka, for this awesome service – I will be adding more books through LibraryBub!  - Gregg Michaelsen, #1 best-selling author

We are so happy with the exposure. [...] The cherry on top is the publicity we received on ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox. We can't thank you enough for these results. [...]. I know the time and work it takes to work this magic. Kudos to you. We plan to make LibraryBub our go to for all the books in the series. - Janis Friesler, children's author

Being an independent author and publisher, I have scoured the internet to
 find the best and most efficient ways to market my books. Deciding to have 
LibraryBub put my books in front of thousands of librarians was a 
no-brainer. [...] If you haven't gotten
 your book into libraries, do it now and hire LibraryBub. You'll be glad 
you did. - Robin Murphy, author and publisher
