LOS ANGELES, Sept. 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Dillon Jacobs identifies true books on personal finance as a current trend in business publishing. Matt Paradise relates his own personal experience as a background to the advice he offers in his debut book Financially Capable: a friendly guide to building whole-health wealth. A Kirkus review describes it as “a knowledgeable and upbeat overview of everyday money matters” written in a “highly relatable, conversational style”.
LibraryBub, an industry first, was established in 2015. Dedicated to making strong, mutual connections between indie and small-press authors and an extensive network of libraries, 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. 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. Acclaimed author Joshua Davis remembers the fascination of the library when he was growing up. For him, “it was a magical place where you could walk down the aisles, and you never knew what you might find. It was like an adventure.” 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.
