"As usual, we posted over 30 new deals, among them: Non-fiction inspirational titles by NYT bestseller Debbie Macomber; A narrative investigation of Roger Clemens; A View co-host memoir of "granting permission slips" in life; A vampire novel featuring Jane Austen as its undead heroine; historical fantasy set in the Lower East Side; Debut fiction from an Indian; lots of film rights, and much more."
I'm a cheapie who doesn't read Publisher's Marketplace, but I don't quite get one of the sentences here. Debut fiction from an Indian? Huh? Is the author a resurrected Native American? Because otherwise, I don't see anything super spectacular about an Indian (as in: native of India) or Native American author publishing fiction. Last I checked, people of all races were equally adept at writing novels.
This is probably just a typo, but it proves that you must watch your typos! Or Gabrielle will come after you.
