Wait, what?

Today, Delacorte Press announced that its newest fantasy author is … Tyra Banks? Apparently, the America’s Next Top Model creator has signed on for a series of modeling-themed books set in a magical alt-reality. The first title, Modelland, is already finished and will hit bookstores next summer.

On her web site, Banks said the book was “for all the girls and guys who want a lot more FANTASY in their lives … and some fierceness and magic, romance and mystery, crazy and wild adventures, and yeah, some danger too.” Yeah, $10 says there are fairies in this book.

Now, please join me in a resounding, “HUH?”
