The Nigerian-American writer shared a photo of the cover of her book – Children of Blood and Bone – and the cover of Nora Robert’s new book – Of Blood and Bone – which share similar titles.
Tomi, on her Twitter page, writes: “It would be nice if an artist could create something special without another artist trying to shamelessly profit off it.”
She, however, issued an apology later via Twitter, revealing that Nora Roberts reached out to her and explained why she used the book title she did.
“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 apologised, but I wanted to address it here as I know others were upset too.”
