Susan Boyle’s Got Literary Buzz

susan123.jpgThe grey-haired church lady turned international pop sensation, Susan Boyle, has spawned literary bids around the world.

The singer’s spot on the reality show Britain’s Got Talent generated 41 million views on YouTube, landing the singer television, tabloid, and Internet fame. In the United States, the singer’s book auction will be handled by agent Richard Pine. In England, she is represented by agent Mark Lucas.

Here’s more from Crain’s: “Some publishing executives who think there is potential in Ms. Boyle’s book are still nervous about spending the millions it might take to buy it. ‘She has a story,’ says an editor at one house considering the book. ‘But it’s a short story.’” (Photo via, link via.)
