Urban Reviews: How did the idea for this book come about?
Lucky Luck 2: With a desire to change careers, I was going to become a freelance writer in hopes of becoming a full-time journalist. As I wrote about the topic, Relationships With In-laws, I kept getting bombarded with more ideas and the length of the paper greatly increased. As the pages grew, it eventually developed into the storyline for the title of the book.
Urban Reviews: What things about the book industry have taken you by surprise?
Lucky Luck 2: When you don't receive support or encouragement from established authors, that can sometimes be disheartening. When I didn't become an overnight success by quickly getting on the Best seller list, that was a wake-up call for me.
Urban Reviews: What has been your best experience so far as a published author?
Lucky Luck 2: When a person says that when they picked up my book they were not able to set it down, that is by far one of the greatest compliments that a person can give me about my work.
Urban Reviews: Who or what inspired you to want to become a writer?
Lucky Luck 2: My parents saw at an early age that I was blessed with the gift of writing and I had a talent for public speaking.
Urban Reviews: Do you have any ideas or plans for any upcoming projects?

Urban Reviews: What things can you suggest to other writers that are thinking about self-publishing their novel?
Lucky Luck 2: When people tell you "don't give up," you shouldn't see that as a tired cliche. This person is usually trying to tell you that you will face many obstacles before you get to the finish line.
Urban Reviews: Is there anything else you would like to share about yourself or your novel?
Lucky Luck 2: I would like to reiterate my novel is available at my website, http://www.allthingspublishing.com/ and also Barnes And Noble.
