Set the clock back to March 2017. Remember when the first installment of Tomi Adeyemi’s Orïsha trilogy, Children of Blood and Bone, was acquired by Christian Trimmer and Jean Feiwel at Henry Holt (Macmillan) for nearly seven-figures? It was one of the biggest book deals ever made in the young adult genre, made larger by Fox 2000’s preemptive acquisition of Orïsha for the big screen. (Word on the street is the movie deal “landed at or near” a billion dollars as well. Did I mention Adeyemi is 23 years old?) I’m happy to report that the wait for the novel is nearly over. Children of Blood and Bone hits shelves next Tuesday, March 6! Continue reading “Quote of the Week | Tomi Adeyemi”
