First-time author, Tomi Adeyemi, writer of the fantasy novel “Children of Blood and Bone,” wasn’t very happy and called out popular writer Nora Roberts after she named her latest book, ‘Of Blood And Bone’.

The Nigerian-American writer shared a photo of the cover of her book and the cover of Nora Robert’s new book which share similar titles.

Nora’s new fantasy novel is titled, “Of Blood and Bone,” a phrase she has used very often in her books.

Tomi, on her Twitter, wrote: “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, revealing that Nora Roberts reached out to her and explained that she’d never actually heard of her own book before the Twitter call out.

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
