News of a Susan Boyle autobiography, ghost written, has sent the fanatics into a flurry of file searching.
An advertisement, on a fansite, for any and all information on the singers rise to fame, has created a maelstrom of one-upmanship.
One Canadian gent has suggested that they pool all their resources and present them to the ghost writer. It would seem sensible, would it not, for all the fans to contribute to a book that accurately reflects their heroines, rags to riches, meteoric rise to fame?
Not a bit of it! They couldn't even agree that Miss Boyle was living in reduced circumstances. Chapters 1, 2 and 3 rubbished by her fanatics already, before a word is written.
A ghost writer will discover, from the singers own words and thoughts, exactly how she lived and how she coped through the last year of trauma and tribulation that would have tested the strongest person.
How, then, will the fanatics react to a true account of all that Miss Boyle has gone through? A breakdown, never happened. Tantrums and tears, that was tiredness. A disaster in New York, pushed and shoved by fans did not occur. There are many hundreds of videos and pictures but none, amazingly, showed that side of the fanatics.
Another fan suggests personal anecdotes of meeting Susan and the live performances. That would be prefect for an autobiography. There is so much to be positive about. Big up the brilliant concerts, play down the obsession would make one wonderful paragraph.
This will be a book worth reading. In her own words, a truly global and arguably the first Internet superstar. Someone who has broken all kinds of records to achieve so much.
We look forward to an intriguing read. The loyal fans will be disappointed if the book is a diluted account of a magnificent year.
