Spotlight: Look - It's Your Book! by Anna Featherstone

Today I'm celebrating the release of Look - It's Your Book! by Anna Featherstone. This is a special day in the Carpe Librum calendar, not just because it's 22/2/22, but because I contributed content for this book!! That's right, I'm in this book! 

In 2018 I hosted a giveaway for Honey Farm Dreaming by Anna and we really enjoyed the collaboration. In March 2021, Anna asked if she could interview me for her how-to book for Australian non-fiction authors who are planning to self publish. Answering all sorts of questions about what a book blogger does, tips for authors asking for reviews and more, this was a terrific project to be part of.

I've been mentioned in a few Acknowledgement sections of books now as well as had my praise published in the front - and back - of fiction and non-fiction books, but until now, I've never been listed in an index. There's nothing better than a bookish first, and now Allen, Tracey is an index item, how cool is that?

All vanity aside, I hope you can forgive my excitement about this and I'm confident Look - It's Your Book! by Anna Featherstone is going to be a valuable resource for budding and aspiring Australian writers.
