I decided to let Twitter pick. So I asked for a number between 2 and 202 (because in the chart, line 1 wasn’t used).
There were 22 kind people on Twitter who gave me a number. I went to random.org and asked for a number between 1 and 22:

Congrats, Susan Adrian! You won a pre-order of The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg, from one of my favorite indie bookstores here in New York: the awesome McNally Jackson!
I will email you separately for your mailing address.
Thank you to everyone who entered—and thank you especially to the wonderful debut authors who took part in this series. I can’t wait to read every single one of your books, and I hope everyone will go grab them and devour them when they come out next year.
Happy almost New Year, everyone!
