her eyes are so dead in the 1st picture, very flat, dissapointed Tyra.. maybe she has channeled her modeling skills into writing.. doubtful

^I agree. She does that thing with her eyes, I don't know how to describe it but she squints her eyes or makes them real wide to look intense and she thinks that makes her a good model....its so annoying to me.

Wow, so I was right. I should have known Tyra would plaster herself everywhere. She'll never be taken seriously as a writer....she should stick to her t.v. shows.

I know she needs her image to get her books out there obviously, but I wish she did it in a less obnoxious way..

The eye thing, or "smeyes" as she calls it, is pretty annoying and since when does Tyra have freckles? Did I miss something?

This is serious case of career ADD. She's not very focused like Oprah (who she admires).

No.

And, if you read the comments section of her website you can see that the novel is aimed perfectly for her audience. She's actually made a smart decision by focusing on her core fan group. Tyhards?

Tyra, this latest feat of yours does not surprise me at all. I've always revered you as being the epitome of Black Woman, which makes you that of " women " world wide, and an exemplary idol for women of all backgrounds to look to and fashion their dreamable achievements after. This book series is just another of your dreams coming to fruition and it causes me to hold you in that much more of a high esteem. I will read this series and as I look forward to doing so, I wish you much continued success as long as you keep positively motivating the ladies of today, who'll be tomorrows mothers. I Am

This is so awesome..really weird but this notion of fantasy transferred to me without me even realizing. As I read the letter in my email I got really excited. I was so excited for Tyra that I was like "omg I need to call her how awesome.."Then I came back to reality and remembered "oh! I don't have her #." Lol..that was the funniest moment I had with myself all day.

the most ridiculous concept for a book ever! I can't believe someone is going to publish it. I don't think it will sell well either, there is a difference between being a fan of her show and passively watching it and having to actively read her blabble.

Janice is the only model who could get away with a crazy model memoir...Tyra doesn't hold a tiny birthday candle to Janice. This'll be in the 50 cents section in no time...

whatever people say, I admire Tyra for being such a career achiever and a true hardworking-successful mogul. People can't deny her high fashion and couture days, her many professional achievements and her power and media empire today so for her going after another dream or life's goal like writting a novel is indeed fierce and great congrats Tyra for doing your things and not being bothered by "what if they think or say..." coz that's how she made it so far guys

The excerpt is just laughably bad. I am amazed that there are people who cannot wait to read this tripe. There is just no way I can read any book that has characters named: Tookie, Myrracle, Theophilus Lovelaces, and Zarpessa Zarionneaux.
