YouTube Star Tanya Burr On Why She Acknowledged Her Ghost Writer And Didn’t Ask Zoella For Help
The vlogger's new book has been released just weeks after the controversial publication of Zoe Sugg's Girl Online.
On Thursday, YouTube star Tanya Burr released her first book, and it has already found its way to the top of bestseller lists.
In a blog post, Burr also said:
Although I wanted to write the whole book myself, I knew it wasn't realistic with the time scale we had to work to.
Georgina came over almost every day for a week and we just talked loads with a dictaphone running, I told her all about the chapters I had planned and she suggested new ones and we basically just brainstormed.
Georgina then went home and transcribed our days of chatting and came up with a draft and structure for the book.
I then spent all my time working on the text.
Rodgers, meanwhile, told BuzzFeed News she did not want to comment on the writing process as she was busy with another project.
Burr told BuzzFeed News she did not ask Sugg for any advice about writing a book, despite them both landing publishing deals off the back of their YouTube success.
The book's publication has seen Burr embark on something of a surprise worldwide promotional tour.
Here she is on Channel 7's Sunrise programme:
Even on the other side of the world, the vlogger has devoted fans following her every move and watching her videos in their thousands.
She recently told ITV News London:
It's hard to say why the videos are so popular. I think it's because I'm just a normal girl, going about my life, and I film some make-up tutorials – so I guess they can be quite helpful for people.
Also I vlog my daily life, like I was just filming backstage here … giving people a behind-the-scenes look at what I get up to.
When I meet [fans] in the street, we seem to have so much in common and it feels like I'm meeting friends, which is really nice.
