That, there, is LeAnna the Literary Lush — aka TRIPLE L — of Books, Booze, and Reviews.

AKA, MY KINDA PEOPLES.
Last week’s challenge: One Random Sentence (winner will be picked later this afternoon). On a bit of a random kick, so let’s go with that, again. This time, I give you eight random words. Choose four of these and incorporate them into a piece of flash fiction no more than 1000 words long, posted at your blog or online space by Friday, June 8th, at noon.
You will get a random sentence and you will use it as either the first or the last sentence of your up-to-1000-word flash fiction entry in this week’s challenge.

Didja see? Didja see? DINOCALYPSE NOW is ready to be downloaded into your eye-pads and Kindlemaschines and Nookies or whatever the hell you use in this crazy e-reader future. (And you can pre-order print!) But, hey, I’d like to give a copy away. An e-copy, to be clear. To get it, you gotta dance for your dinosaurs.
