PERFECT PLUS ONE:Adam Lambert Book Authors' Hijinks at Highline Ballroom

By   |   February 21, 2010   |   Entertainment

cropped-stare-ahead-nyc Perfect Plus One goes inside the Adam Lambert show in New York City with uber fans and authors Juneau and Xena!

“Last Friday saw fans of Kris Allen, Alison Iraheta and Adam Lambert descend en masse on the Big Apple to attend the Rock My Town concert at the Highline Ballroom.

glambertgals Out of some 17,000 fans who entered a contest to attend the show, 300 winners received a pair of tickets, among them Juneau and Xena, the mysterious co-authors of the book, On the Meaning of Adam Lambert, which was just released on Amazon. ΓÇ£Not only that, three of our friends also won,ΓÇ¥ exclaimed Juneau. ΓÇ£WhatΓÇÖs the chance of that?ΓÇ¥

Little wonder the two authors feel thanks to the Universe are due. Fate seems to have smiled on the book project every step of the way.

The two women encountered each other on wowOwow.com, a web site that published an essay about Lambert by Allegra Huston, which triggered an outpouring of posts (19,000-plus to date). Juneau and Xena wrote vivid, intimate and humorous commentaries that won them many fans. Their friendship blossomed in cyberspace.

Days after deciding to edit their posts into a book, a noted designer, an old friend of JuneauΓÇÖs, found her on Facebook. A week later, he had agreed to produce the book. The 240-page book was edited, designed and printed in little over two months, and was launched on Amazon, where it is already garnering rave reviews.

For those who have been hiding in nuclear bunkers, Adam Lambert is what many are calling a once-in-a-generation singer who catapulted to stardom in Season 8 of American Idol.

Unusually for a pop star, he has drawn a following that cuts across generations, from teens to centenarians. ΓÇ£For us Boomer women, there is something about AdamΓÇÖs dark-penciled aquamarine eyes, androgyny, insanely beautiful, powerful vocals and evolved personality that pushes every possible emotional hot-button,ΓÇ¥ Juneau says.

And so, on the evening of the Rock My Town show, the authors and nine of their cybersisters took over the Living Room bar at the Standard Hotel.

Coming from Toronto, Boston, Hartford, Philadelphia and Virginia, most were meeting face to face for the first time. Decked in black and silver sequins, feathers and chains, they toasted Adam Lambert for inspiring their friendship and the book.

And, as the authors later write on their blog, their muse did not disappoint. That night, Adam Lambert ignited the stage in an incendiary, Glamrock spectacle that left fans gasping and reviewers grasping for superlatives.”

    Xena and Juneau rocked NYC! I'm a fan of them and their sexy, hilarious tale "On the Meaning of Adam Lambert". What I would have given to win a ticket and attend both their book reading and the performance of the great Adam Lambert at the Highline Ballroom. (Yes, I know that Kris Allen and Allison Iraheta performed too -I am fans of them as well.)The Rawk Gods must have smiled upon our authors, since winning tickets to this event was unlikely. As it was, five members of their group won tickets. Serendipity!
