Tyra Banks Announces First Novel, Modelland

>> In what is part of a three-book young adult fantasy series deal with Random House, Tyra Banks announced her first novel, Modelland, today.

"The story happens in a make-believe place called Modelland," Banks writes. "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."

She wants to make the books into movies »

The book is scheduled for a Summer 2011 release, and Banks already has eyes for turning the series into a movie franchise. The move into books, she says, signals the entrance into the "third stage" of her career. "I went from being a model to creating a production company. The third phase . . . is not just TV production, but also film and working to create a beauty Web portal."
