Adam Lambert AURA has arrived!

July 8, 2013

aura-stacking-up-70613News flash!  It all started with a meeting of like-minded fans three years ago. After many phone conferences and emails, postcards were distributed at the Hyannis Glam Nation tour stop announcing plans to create a new book (or as it turned out, magazine) of fans’ stories and testimonials about how Adam Lambert had changed their lives. One could have birthed three babies in that interval, and with arguably less turmoil and pain, so it’s with great joy that we share the news here that AURA is finally packed and ready to go!!

Here’s the scoop from the AURA Blog:

As you may know, the shipment of AURA magazines arrived from the printer on Friday, July 5, as scheduled.

Yesterday, my son and I packed all the AURA orders. See photo (below). Starting tomorrow and continuing for a few days, all current orders will be mailed out.

Some extra copies remain, but not a lot. If you want to order a copy to keep drool-proof, send one to family or friends because your story is included, or send one as a gift you can still place an order. When they’re gone, they’re gone .  .  . unless or until we get orders for another 500 magazines, at which time we can go back to press.

Some vital statistics:

  • AURA is a long, slender 9x12x.27 inches, with 140 pages plus front and back cover illustrations, weighing in at over a pound.
  • The stunning cover photograph of Adam was taken by Claire Low, @GlambertPianist, during his Singapore WAG Tour concert.
  • The exquisite back cover drawing was created by Svetlana Egorova, @ListoffSAY, after Adam’s Life Ball performance in Vienna, Austria.
  • Words and images were submitted by fans and professionals from 27 countries.
  • Fans from 25 of the 50 United States are represented.
  • While not a chronological record of Adam’s journey since IdolAURA is organized into loose time-frames preceded by a section of stories that set the scene: IntroductionAmerican Idol 2009FYE/Glam Nation Tour 2010;Trespassing 2012, including a photo-rich section on Queen & Adam Lambert; and Globetrotting/WAG Tour.
  • Beyond fan art and impact stories, AURA includes insights and perspectives from people who know, respect—and  love—Adam: e.g., Michael Orland, Adam’s Idol coach and pianist; Brian May, yes THAT Brian May;  Adam’s long-time friend Eden Espinosa; AI8 contestant Michael Sarver; et al.

    I prepaid for an Aura magazine months ago, and as luck would have it, we are moving today, and I don’t know if it will be forwarded or not. To make things worse, my computer will be down until when can have it reinstalled at our new residence. If possible, could you check to see if mine has been sent, and if it hasn’t, please change my address? The following is the information given when I ordered it:

    Twila Biggers 1304 Robinwood Drive West Plains, MO 65775 twila.biggers@gmail.com 417-372-1029

    The following is my new address, email will be the same, whenever we’re able to get our computer system up again:

    Twila Biggers 6784 County Road 9040 West Plains, MO 65775 417-372-1029 twila.biggers@gmail.com

    If you could check on my order and let me know what’s happening, I’d really appreciate it. Thank you, Twila Biggers

      Hi Pam,
      So happy you got your copy. Mine are waiting for me when I get home from my business trip. All credit goes to Alice. I only helped with the first stages of gathering, editing and putting together the production plan. She did ALL the heavy lifting, and I’m so proud of her and all the fans who contributed their stories and pieces of their heart for this wonderful project. xox J

    I pre-ordered my copy of Aura, but recently saw that I had a credit for the amount that had been charged to my account. I am very excited about this magazine and would like to know how to place a second order.
