So Nigerian-American author, Tomi Adeyemi on Tuesday November 27th claimed that veteran author Nora Roberts (yes, the same Nora Roberts o) lifted her book title.
The matter was seemingly resolved when Tomi Adeyemi posted this tweet on Thursday but then Nora Roberts has hit back (without mentioning any names) for the sole reason that though Tomi has publicly apologized, she has done nothing to put out the fire her tweet started in the first place.
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.— Tomi Adeyemi (@tomi_adeyemi) November 28, 2018
I’m grateful she explained & I’ve apologized, but I wanted to address it here as I know others were upset too https://t.co/OCcaUtu83F
