Publishing Deal - Tyra Banks

Tyra Banks has signed a three book deal for a YA fantasy series. From CBS News:

The talk show host and former model has agreed to a three-book deal with Delacorte Press for a fantasy series for young people. It's about a girl trying to keep up with the beauty game at an elite school for supermodels, or Intoxibellas.

Delacorte said Tuesday that the first novel, "Modelland," comes out in the summer of 2011.

More is revealed on Tyra Banks's website:

The story happens in a make-believe place called Modelland - every girl in the world wants to go there because it’s where “Intoxibellas” are trained. Intoxibellas are drop-dead beautiful, kick-butt fierce and, yeah, maybe they have some powers too. (But I’m confirming NOTHING! Ha. You gotta wait for the book.) The story follows a teen girl and her friends who find themselves magically transported to Modelland, even though they’re really not supposed to be there. (Okay, now, that’s ALL I’m saying!)


  1. Huh.


    I am completely uncertain how to react to that news! To be disturbed or excited, that is the question.

  2. Hmm, I'm not sure what to think of this. I'll give it a chance, like I do with everything!

  3. LOL! WUT?! Truth be told, had I ever wondered what kind of book Tyra Banks would write, were she ever to decide to write one (or 3, lol) ... this would be it spot on :o I'm not surprised, just ... err ... I don't know, lol ... this is a little odd.
