AURA arrived on my doorstep one month ago today. Since then, the magazine has been welcomed with love all over the world!
Reading a few comments posted on Facebook and Twitter by new AURA owners you can feel the excitement. . .

Their “new arrival” has led many to order seconds so they can keep one “like new.” Some are gifting friends. Some have brought AURA to work, to Zumba class, to lunch, to Adam concerts.
All of which has led to the current challenge of demand exceeding supply. As of today, we are down to our last 4 dozen copies, with new orders coming in every day. It’s clear that we need to print more copies. To do so, we need 500 new orders. Group orders would be great, so for orders of 50 or more, we’ll reduce your shipping and postage costs if someone steps up to take the orders, collect the $ and distribute the copies. That person will receive a complimentary copy of AURA. INTERNATIONAL FANS: Your local postage rates are much lower than postage from the U.S. so keep it in mind.
If you would like more information about placing a group order, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just a thought . . . If you are so inclined, you may want to tweet @shoshannastone. If she becomes aware that fans like it, she may want to make it available on a broader scale. At concerts or possibly through the fan club merch site. It’s worth a try anyway.
To all those who contributed stories, poems, drawings, paintings, photographs, bless you. Your generosity, creativity, open hearts and open minds have made AURA the beautiful tribute it is. The insights, love, dedication, and talent in our fandom are truly incredible.
To those who have supported AURA, there are no words to fully express my gratitude. Thank you, thank you.
