Queries, Qualms, & Quirks show

Summary: <p>Historical Fiction Author Addison Armstrong joins Queries, Qualms, &amp; Quirks this week to discuss predicting her jobs in Pre-K, querying too soon due to excitement, graduating college with a literary agent, taking her book offer call with a broom in one hand, being surprised by a two-book contract, how a book contract changed her feelings towards writing, and worrying that the first book contract was a fluke.</p> <p>Addison Armstrong is a historical fiction author and a third-grade teacher. She grew up in south Florida and currently lives in Nashville, TN with her husband. She started writing <em>The Light of Luna Park</em> in 2019 during her junior year of college and had it published with Putnam in 2021. Her next novel, <em>The War Librarian</em>, will come out in August of this year (2022).</p> <p>Addison: <a href="https://docs.google.com/document/d/1h7ft3xN1YHcuj8a5LPkoDxDOO0IiV0KJKMtBzJH-In4/edit?usp=sharing"><u>Query</u></a> | <a href="http://www.addisonarmstrong.com/"><u>Website</u></a> | <a href="http://www.twitter.com/addisonarmstro7"><u>Twitter</u></a> | <a href="http://www.instagram.com/addison.armstrong.author"><u>Instagram</u></a> | <a href="https://amzn.to/3aY9Pga"><u>Amazon</u></a> | <a href="https://bookshop.org/a/1209/9780593328064"><u>Bookshop</u></a> | <a href="https://www.indiebound.org/book/9780593328040?aff=72724"><u>IndieBound</u></a> | <a href="https://libro.fm/referral?isbn=%209780593409282&amp;rf_code=lfm164099"><u>Libro FM</u></a></p> <p><a href="https://sarahnicolas.com/queries-qualms-quirks/"><u>QQQ Home Base</u></a> |<a href="https://www.patreon.com/pubtalklive"> <u>Support on Patreon</u></a></p> <p>If links aren't clickable, find them here: <a href="https://bit.ly/qqqarmstrong"><u>https://bit.ly/qqqarmstrong</u></a></p> <p>This page includes affiliate links.
