Nigerian Writer, Tomi Adeyemi Apologizes To Nora Roberts

Nora Roberts also has a new book titled Of Blood and Bone 

She had written on Twitter: “It would be nice if an artist could create something special without another artist trying to shamelessly profit off it”

The writer has now apologized after speaking to Nora Roberts who assured that wasn’t the case. Adeyemi has now accepted the titles were only a coincidence and wasn’t planned.

She took to twitter to apologize and wrote:

update: Nora was kind enough to reach out & explain that today was the first she’d heard of my book. After talking to her, I believe our titles were created in isolation.
I’m grateful she explained & I’ve apologized, but I wanted to address it here as I know others were upset too
