I guess you might be able to, although, I would suggest the following approach:
Maybe start with a passage from the book or a summary of what it's about, then go on to describe the influences and events that lead to you deciding to write a book, give some information about the sort of problems you came up with while writing it and continue with how you went about getting it published / what's happened since. Maybe close off with a few tips to aspiring authors of similar forms of book!
What this will produce is a hub which, personally, I would find very interesting as well as providing plenty of advertising opportunity for your book (Include several amazon and e-bay capsules and maybe a link or two to reviews / your own website / several useful resources for writers).
Often knowing the story behind a book can enthuse people to want to read it - and make doing so all the more interesting!
