The (miniscule) number of entries allowed me to use a small hat for the selection process.
I don’t have access to those cutesy random number thingies. So. I cut up pieces of paper, wrote names on these, folded the slips, and put them in Michael’s sailing cap. (It’s a great looking hat on my cute husband, but it doesn’t do squat to protect his ears from the sun, which is why it ought to be relegated–permanently–to the role of The Drawing Hat.)
With suitable fanfare, Michael tossed the slips of paper around inside the hat. I held the Drawing Hat high. He shuffled again. Then he squinted at me. “You can see what I’m picking, can’t you?” No, Michael, I couldn’t see–the papers were folded. Besides, who cared? I wasn’t the one choosing.
He drew out the name. Opened and read: Jane.
So, our winner is Jane Lebak, who commented as Philangelus.
Your book will be sent to you as soon and you and I clarify details.
