    I’m am awaiting publication of my second novel, and would like to participate in a Beyond the Books Author Interview. I’m noting that most of your questions pertain to “first time publishing.” Since that was several years ago for me, I’m inquiring if the questions could be tweaked to fit my situation. Thank you for the time devoted to my inquiry.
