AURA DIGITAL FILE IS HERE

At long last, I’ve resolved the AURA digital file distribution dilemma.

The challenge was to create a digital file that would be low-res, read-only and share-proof. Low-res, no problem. Read-only—not printable or alterable—check. But protecting it from being shared? Huge challenge.

The more I found out, the clearer it became that preventing sharing isn’t feasible. Explaining to people who bought AURA that the whole publication is suddenly online would be tough. How to resolve? Here goes:

Here is the digital file: AURA LOW-RES WATERMARKED FILE. I will also post the link on Twitter and on various Facebook pages.

—To those who purchased the printed AURA magazine:  I know the heavily watermarked digital file will be annoying, but it may free you from having to open your printed copy as often.

—To those who purchased the digital file only: I will refund your US$10 via PayPal. Email me if you don’t receive the refund in the next few days.

If this watermarked digital file is shared—no worries.

Thank you for your patience. I hope you understand the dilemma and why I’ve resolved it this way. Any Qs, contact alice@plumcomm.com. If you decide to order a printed copy of AURA, go to: https://adamlambertaura.wordpress.com/2013/11/25/special-holiday-offers/

SPECIAL HOLIDAY OFFERS

This past Wednesday, November 20, on the BlogTalkRadio show about AURA, Paula Long, founder of Wear the Music (@WeartheMusicCo) surprised listeners by announcing she is offering a special pendant for one lucky AURA purchaser!

The pendant Paula is donating is “Underneath” in Bronze, which she says looks similar to 10K Gold. http://wearthemusic.co/adam-lambert.htm#Design24 Alternatively, if her brand-new piece resonates more with the winner, she’ll substitute this piece in bronze! http://wearthemusic.co/adam-lambert.htm#Design27

How will the winner be selected?

A random number generator will help identify the winner. When I enter the number 1 and the total number of copies purchased through Tuesday, November 26, in the online random number generator, the program will select one number within that range. Then I’ll count through the PayPal and check purchases to identify the person who bought that copy of AURA. If you have already bought one or more copies, you’re in the running. Multiple copies increase your chances, whether you bought multiple copies all at once or over time

The random number will be generated Wednesday, so if you plan to buy a copy of AURA, do so by Tuesday to be eligible for the pendant.

Thanks to Paula for her kindness, generosity and incredible creativity.

Black Friday Offer

Paula’s generosity prompted me to offer a Black Friday special through Monday December 2. If you buy 1 copy, you can buy a second one for 1/2 price. A total of US$36 instead of US$48—$12 savings. And reduced holiday shipping fees still apply.
