The Wauneta Breeze

Fans of fictional writing made their way to the Wauneta Public Library Nov. 18 for the opportunity to meet a trio of area literary artists.

Linda Young, a Wauneta resident of eight years and former Wauneta Breeze employee, introduced Dr. Paul Bottom and his book “Forest of Fears,” which was recently released in its second edition through Young’s publishing company MaxQ Enterprises.

Young said showcasing the talent of her company’s authors, most of whom are being published for the first time, is the main focus of conducting book signings.

Young, who also worked at the Wauneta library during her time as a resident in Wauneta said it’s the library she misses most, along with the people.

MaxQ, now entering its fifth year in existence, currently has about a dozen employees under its umbrella, including authors, voice-over speakers and illustrators.

Although MaxQ no longer openly accepts submissions, Young said she thinks her company gives its first-time authors a springboard to future opportunities in the literary field. She said she pulls for her authors to succeed and grow as writers.

“We have some great creative people on board,” said Young. Young designs the book covers for MaxQ’s releases herself–that’s just one of the many hats she wears.

Bottom, a retired doctor from Grant, is expected to release his second novel through MaxQ early in the summer of 2011. Bremmer’s mystery novels, including her newest release “Secret of Dragonfly Island,” are available through Windcall Publishing.

Young, Bottom and Bremmer all currently live in or near Grant. The trio’s next event is a book signing in Grant on Sunday, Dec. 5 at Meadowlark Art Gallery at noon MT.
