Until this week, I hadn’t heard of Bookface – a craze among book lovers which, so I’m told, has been sweeping Instagram in the past couple of years. It’s a simple idea: you find a book with a face, or some other body part (the mind boggles), on the cover and pose behind it for a selfie, in such a way that the two images merge into one. Here’s one of me with my first YA novel, Flip, which was taken during a visit to a local school. I’ll leave you to judge whether it’s me or the book that’s upside down and back to front.
I’m grateful to Angela Palmer, Assistant Communities Librarian with Leeds Library & Information Service, for sharing the image with me.
