BOOK DEAL: Stacy Morrison, editor in chief of Redbook, is the latest editor to receive a book deal. After a bidding war between six publishing houses, Simon & Schuster Inc. won the right to publish Morrison's book, which will be a "prescriptive memoir" about her divorce, called "Falling Apart in One Piece." "I want to comfort those that are going through the same things," she said.
Morrison received a six-figure deal, but hasn't started writing the book. She predicts it will be published in 2009, at the earliest. She added that it will cover the times she has been "wowed and surprised by timing," such as when her husband said he wanted to leave, while they were raising an eight-month-old son and she was interviewing for the editor in chief job at Redbook. Or the time she found out her house started to flood while interviewing President Bush in the White House (the results from the interview appeared in the November 2004 issue). At this point, she said it's too early to predict whether she'll go on a book tour. — A.W.
