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 Idol, AURA is organized into loose time-frames preceded by a section of stories that set the scene: Introduction; American Idol 2009; FYE/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.

    • Hi Marsha,
      Your PayPal order didn’t come through. Suggest you try again, typing the email address carefully. For some reason, whoever has had this problem found it was solved by copying the email address carefully. I’ll let you know when I receive it. OK try again.


  1. Alice, it was such a pleasure getting to know you in Pittsburgh! Can’t wait for to get Aura. Wish I’d have paid attention when you were collecting stories. Maybe next time 🙂

    • Molly, Same back to you!! Enduring the insane situation–for no one but Adam!! If I ever do this again please share your story or insights.
      XO Alice

  2. Wow, Thanks Alice. I am shaking reading this. Aura is the most phenomenal fan magazine, there is. The one and only brought out by the out pouring of love,and positive energy of so many brilliant ladies; you Alice took the idea and made that olympic run for its realization. Yes, as with other fans, I did not know what was going on, until my Adam searches through the web brought me to this wonderful INSANE WORLD OF ADAM. If this is Insanity, let me embrace it. Thank you all, Thank you!!

    • Hi Evvy,
      Adam has changed life for so many of us. It’s hard to comprehend. AURA captures a small part of this phenomenon.

      Thank you so much for your kind words. AURA would not exist without the generosity and open hearts of scores of Adam fans who entrusted their thoughts,feelings, experiences and creativity to us. We are all part of an incredible family Adam has created with his beautiful soul.

      Please let me know what you think of AURA after you read it.
