One of the things that I’ve been doing in lockdown is converting my new book, Coastal, into an e-book.


Whereas for printing every image needs to be as large as possible, for an e-book every image needs to be as small as possible. I didn’t want to lose the feel of my book, which is crammed with photos, printmaking, illustrations and other design elements. But I’ve now got the file size from over 100MB down to less than 10!

Hope you enjoy reading my stories and recipes on your tablet, e-reader, Kindle or phone. As always, any feedback is very welcome (and if you decide you’d like a hard copy) you can grab one from a good NZ bookstore or this website.
