Tyra Banks Signs Multi-Book Deal With Delacorte Press
Executive Editor Wendy Loggia acquired the three-book series for Delacorte from Andy McNicol of William Morris Endeavor Entertainment. Loggia, editor of the bestselling series Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares and Fallen by Lauren Kate, will also edit Banks. "When we read the proposal, we immediately loved it," says Loggia. "That it was from an icon like Tyra Banks made it a publishing opportunity like none other. Readers will be drawn to the books for the very same reasons they love Tyra — her adventuresome spirit, her sincere desire to empower females of all ages, and her unique success in the fashion world are very much present in the story. MODELLAND is hands-down the FIERCEST thing Delacorte will be publishing in 2011."
