Way back in April, I was blogging about Pam Spengler-Jaffee’s tips for promoting your book in unlikely forums. And I joked about promoting Goddess of the Hunt at gun shows and in sporting magazines and quoted that great line from Notting Hill, “The readers of Horse and Hound will be delighted.”

So what shows up in my mailbox yesterday, but two issues of Field & Stream, addressed to MOI. The first (which I could not find a photo of, darn it) has a cover story titled “The Best Ammo” and a feature on “1,000 Women Hunters.”

Now seriously, did one of you do this? I can’t for the life of me imagine how I got subscribed to this magazine. But I do wonder what they charge for a 1/4 page ad….

    LMAO! Kind of like those mysterious copies of TV guide that keep coming to me. How utterly appropriate that it was an issue about women hunters. Or would that be huntresses?

    LMAO as well! I did not do it, Tessa, but I sincerely wish I had thought of it! Kudos to the perpetrator on a well thought out, intelligent surprise! A quarter page ad? Hmmm. It’s no swan hat, but it does have that certain panache, doesn’t it?

    If I had to guess, I’d say CM did it. Next time maybe you’ll get a free voyage, with a handsome captain thrown in!

    LMAO, oh I wish I would have thought of that too! At least you know you are well loved by your friends and they pay attention to what you say.

    Receiving that would be a compliment where I live 🙂

    LOL – that is too funny!

    Manda got an email (from a romance loop she’s on) about a hunting magazine looking for comedic short fiction – we joked that we were going to forward it to you, but I can’t recall if anyone ever did.

    Funny! Wonder if it’s one of those random things, like when I got an Evanescence CD in the mail a few months back for no apparent reason?
