Unwrapping any book in the post is always a little bit exciting, but now imagine it’s your book that you actually wrote yourself.
Then imagine your reaction going viral on Twitter to the point where Stephen fricking King actually ends up retweeting it. That’s what happened to author Tomi Adeyemi on Wednesday.
Adeyemi’s debut novel, Children of Blood and Bone, is coming out next month. On Tuesday, Adeyemi received her first copy in the post.
The unboxing video she uploaded later that day has since been retweeted well over 6000 times.
People on Twitter couldn’t get enough of it.
I am so, so, so, so happy for you Tomi. You deserve the world.💗💖

Sometimes the internet is a nice place.
