Treasures Preorder Campaign

Send proof of purchase or library request and I will mail you swag and enter your name into a drawing for the grand prize of a signed paperback of The Twelve, the first two books in Amie Kaufman’s Elementals trilogy, and a $25 gift card (not pictured)!

Congratulations to Kristen Valenzuela, winner of the grand prize drawing! You’ll be getting a signed paperback of The Twelve, the first two books in the Elementals series and a gift card! Big thanks to everyone who ordered Treasures of the Twelve or requested it at their library and sent in proof — your support means so much!

Treasures of the Twelve will be out in the world later this month, and I’m so excited! As a thank you to anyone who has pre-ordered, I’d love to send some swag: a signed bookplate, an official bookmark and sticker, and a fun sticker sheet of the twelve zodiac animals. To kick things up a notch, I’ll also have a grand prize drawing!

Getting a swag pack is as easy as 1-2! Here’s how:

  1. Order Treasures of the Twelve before August 4th, 2020 (I’m including orders in the week after the July 28th launch)
  2. Email proof-of-purchase to (suggested subject line: “Preorder Campaign”) and include your preferred mailing address. If you want the autographed bookplate to be personalized, please include the name it should be signed to.

And that’s it! Proof-of-purchase can be a photo/scan/screenshot of your receipt, and you can order the book from any book retailer—, Barnes & NobleAmazon,, Book Depository, your local bookstore, whatever is easiest for you! A list of additional retailers selling Treasures of the Twelve can be found here. Please note that orders via subscription boxes do NOT count toward the campaign (mainly because these are bulk orders by the subscription service, and not a retailer, meaning my publisher considers them “special sales,” not “regular sales.”) 

Library requests can get you swag too! If you are unable to pre-order my book, you can request that your local public library order it for their collection, and as a thank you, I’ll send you a bookmark and sticker! Most libraries have a request form. When filling it out, please include the below:

  • Title: Treasures of the Twelve
  • Author: Cindy Lin
  • Publisher: HarperCollins (July 28, 2020)
  • Language: English

Send proof of your request (photo/scan/screenshot) via email to, along with your mailing address. 

The grand prize will include a signed paperback of The Twelve; the first two books in the Elementals trilogy by Amie Kaufman (whose lovely and kind words grace the cover of Treasures); and a $25 gift card from Barnes & Noble or Amazon (winner gets to choose)!
