The novel, to be titled "MODELLAND," is one of a three-book deal with Random House and is expected to be published in summer 2011, according to a press release from the publishing company.
"It's 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," Banks wrote on her website describing her new book.
After retiring from modeling in 2005, Bank's hosted a day-time talk show from 2005 until it was canceled in 2010. Banks also produces and serves as a judge on the reality show "America's Next Top Model."
Banks authored a how-to make-up book in 1998, called "Tyra's Beauty, Inside and Out." "MODELLAND" will be her first fiction book.
