Anger. Jealousy. Disgust. Just three of the emotions reeking havoc in my soul right now. "Jersey Shore" personality Snooki has just released the book "A Shore Thing". Wait -- it's not just a book, IT'S A NOVEL. Yes, I'm sure Snooki sat down at her computer and outlined her story...

In November 2009, The Vineyard Press published my debut novel, FAT CHICK. They are small and do not have a publicity department or PR person on retainer. I have two...

It has been months! Months and months since I last wrote on RedRoom! ...but the problem is that, what with one thing and another - in between writing a novel, and organising spoken word events, and going to jumble sales, and keeping up with the (spit) housework, there hasn't been a lot of time to....
