Susan Boyle Biography DREAMS CAN COME TRUE in Publishers Weekly
Publishers Weekly reports on the new Susan Boyle biography, Dreams Can Come True, which is set for release on February 9: "Overlook has acquired the first biography of British reality TV singing sensation Susan Boyle, Dreams Can Come True. Written by Alice Montgomery, the book, which is slated for February 9 and will be simultaneously published in England by Penguin UK, will trace Boyle's arc from a reclusive Scottish spinster to her headline-grabbing appearance singing "I Dreamed A Dream"on the English reality show, Britain's Got Talent. Boyle's debut album, also called "I Dreamed A Dream," has sold more than 5 million copies, making it the biggest-selling female debut album of all time. The acquisition looks to be something of a coup for Overlook, which is going to press for an initial 100,000 copies. Overlook publisher Peter Mayer acquired the book last month at auction."
