Many of you wanted to support me but the postage costs were just too high (sorry). So just for you, we're releasing the e-book. Thank you again for supporting me.

The book

I’ve been sitting on this book for over two years whilst building up the courage to ask you to help me get it out in the world. Thank you so much for taking a chance on me.

Signed book and some of Dr Liz’s sourdough starter with video instructions

When I thought about quitting medicine (you’ll have to read the book to find out why), I planned to start my own cake shop. I went on a sourdough course and fell in love with making my own bread. I’d love you to be able to bake with me, so I’m going to send you my sourdough starter, a recipe and video instructions telling you what to do.

Five signed books plus a virtual tea and cake with Liz

This is your chance to ask me anything. I can’t wait to spend an hour with you over virtual tea and cake, cocktails – whatever takes your fancy. You can invite your friends if you like – gang up together and spread the cost – the more the merrier. And if you’re only choosing this pledge to speak to my cocker spaniel Hunter, I’ll make sure he sits on my lap the whole time.

Ten signed books plus Liz in person

Although it’s been great to carry on chatting to people online over the last couple of years, there’s something about talking face-to-face that brings me joy. This is your chance to hear me talk about my life in person with a Q and A afterwards. I really hope someone picks this as I’ve got an incredible outfit that I’ve made waiting just for this occasion.

Signed book + a message in the back of the book

I’ve spent my life helping people, and this book is my way of giving back to every single one of you who has supported me through the years. If you would like to say thank you to me, you can have your name in the book, and if you’d like, a sentence telling me why you chose this pledge. I can’t wait to read your reasons and share them with the rest of my community.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I get my book delivered to?

We deliver to most countries worldwide. Enter your delivery address during checkout and we'll display the shipping cost when we know where to send your book.

How do supporter names work?

Every person who pledges to help to make a book gets their name included in a supporter section as a thank you as long as they pledge before the list closing deadline. If you want to add a different name, this can be changed in your account after you have completed your pledge.

Will the book and rewards that I receive look the same as the images shown on the Unbound website?

Book designs, cover and other images are for illustrative purposes and may differ from final design.
