Should I add an author Preface to my self published book?

The Author Preface

When self publishing a book, adding a small Preface to your book helps give the reader a better idea of who you are and why you chose to write your book. This can help them identify with what you write, and also make the book a little more interesting. An author does not need to write a Preface, but since it is only a page or two of information, it should be relatively easy to create a Preface that engages your reader and makes them want to read on.
