Tyra Banks is an entrepenur and he newest venture is in writing…she is now an author. Her books will focusing on a fantasy world…called Modelland…um ok I guess Tyra is trying to stay near her modeling roots!
Tyra wrote on her website today explaining her new adventure,
Iâ€™m so EXCITED!! I said I was going to do it, and here it is! Itâ€™s for all the girls and guys who want a lot more FANTASY in their livesâ€¦ and some fierceness and magic, romance and mystery, crazy and wild adventures, and yeah, some danger too. Itâ€™s my novel called Modelland (pronounced â€œModel Landâ€) that takes you to a fantastical place youâ€™ve never seen, or heard about, or read about beforeâ€¦ Where dreams come true and life can change in the blink of a smoky eye. 😉
I think Modelland is going to really touch the dreamer in all of us, whether youâ€™re aged anywhere from 8 to 80. (Please donâ€™t be mad if youâ€™re 7 or 81, but â€œeight to eightyâ€ sounds better!)
I hope itâ€™s a story everyone will fall in love with. And I know my partners at Random House (whom I love, BTW) are hoping you like it too, since weâ€™re doing not one but a series of THREE Modelland books. Hey, I think youâ€™re going to have fun following the lives of the charactersâ€¦ I wonâ€™t tell you their names YET, but I can tell you many of them are based on the real people in my life as well as some of the models Iâ€™ve known â€“ both nice and â€œiceâ€ (Brrrrrâ€¦..).
The story happens in a make-believe place called Modelland – every girl in the world wants to go there because itâ€™s where â€œIntoxibellasâ€ are trained. Intoxibellas are drop-dead beautiful, kick-butt fierce and, yeah, maybe they have some powers too. (But Iâ€™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 theyâ€™re really not supposed to be there. (Okay, now, thatâ€™s ALL Iâ€™m saying!)
Modelland has always been a part of my mind and my heart. As you might know, I step into a bookstore and I shake (really!) because I love books so much. Ever since I was a kid, I couldnâ€™t wait to pick up a new book and see what worlds the writers had created for me. I especially loved books with strong girls and women â€“ you know, girls with guts, smarts and attitude â€“ and then one day it came to meâ€¦ MODELLAND! Iâ€™m getting it ready for you through my new division called Bankable Books and now Iâ€™m shaking for a different reasonâ€¦ Iâ€™m excited that youâ€™ll be able to read about this magical world thatâ€™s been living in my dreams for so many years.
So, look out for some special things Iâ€™ll be doing here at Tyra.com to start getting you ready for Modelland. And stay tuned for more news from my company, Bankable Enterprises, where we live, eat, breathe, sleep and DREAM about ways to expand the definition of beauty! I canâ€™t wait for us live the dream of Modelland together!
