Fan Club Member Rick Linville's Book/Film Project
One of our BBFC members, Rick Linville, is working on a project with other fans from around the world and is inviting other members of our group to join in. This group of 146 (and growing) fans/members from all over the world who have joined together to possibly create a Meet The Beatlefans book, as well as a possible feature length film about Beatles fans and their true local stories simply as fans. Rick is not looking for the glamorous stories, although you can include them if you do have such stories. So how can you submit your stories? Rick states we all have a unique story, which possibly could be used in the book. Rick and the rest of the group would love for you to share your precious story as a Beatles fan, whether first or second or third generation, and wherever you live on Earth. You can learn more and even join this great site on The Beatles here: http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/BeatlefansDocumentary/ To submit a story without joining the site or just ask Rick more about the project email him.

book's website or on Amazon. It is available on the UK Amazon in Kindle format. Below is how the book is described on the back cover.
What if the Beatles had secretly reunited in the 70’s and recorded an album of their best work in complete secrecy, but hid the work away after another break up? And what if you discovered this information 40 years later? Follow the action and adventure in this fictional account of a group of Beatles fans who stumble upon a clue and set out to find this unreleased music. Their hunt takes them from Scotland to the Isle of Wight and it appears that someone else is determined to get to the music before them. Beatles fans around the world will enjoy the exploits this group of die-hard fans experience in their efforts to follow clues left by Paul 40 years ago as they set out to prove that this music really existed.
