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!
Thank you Sasha, your advice is greatly appreciated. I'm very new to Hub so at the moment I'm feeling my way around. Will do as you suggest soon. Cheers, derek
