WE ARE LOST AND FOUND Presale Donation and Giveaway

Thank you so much for considering an advance purchase of WE ARE LOST AND FOUND. Publishers use presale numbers for many good, book-related things and it means a lot that you want to read this book, which means so very much to me.

In order to have a donation made and to receive WALAF swag:

  • For a personalized, signed copy order from my local indie (leave personalization information in the notes field during checkout): Parnassus

  • Ask your library to order a copy (To request that your library order a copy, go to their website and look for the “request new titles” link. You might need the ISBN which is: 978-1492681045)


For every preorder (up to 1,000), I will donate $1 to BROADWAY CARES/EQUITY FIGHTS AIDS (one of the nation's leading industry-based HIV/AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations).

EVERY hardcover preorder (including International) will receive some fun swag including a bookmark, a signed bookplate, and a WALAF magnet.


AND (US only) you will be entered to win one of FOUR prize packs that include a super cool NYC mug and a copy of Lori Majewski’s amazing behind the scenes look at 80’s new wave, MAD WORLD. Drawings for these prize packs will take place Tuesday, September 10th. 

EMAIL helenereadermail@gmail.com with your:

  • Proof of Purchase or Library order.

  • Name and mailing address. (PLEASE ensure that you are entering the correct information.)

Swag will be sent on a rolling basis.

I’d love it if you would also let me know when you receive your goodies. Tag #WeAreLostAndFound on Instagram and you’ll get an extra entry for the prize packs.

All entries must be received by Monday, September 9th at midnight Eastern Time. Books must be purchased by midnight, Saturday, September 7th in order to be entered.
