David Yow’s COPYCAT Preorder Giveaway Contest!


Trying to figure out the best gift for the noise rock– and cat-lover in your life? You’re in luck: Starting WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, you can enter on Twitter for the chance to win a complete Copycat: And a Litter of Other Cats limited edition preorder package (retail price: $65!). Only 150 packages exist, and one of the last few can be yours if you win!

This package will include:

  • One hardcover copy of COPYCAT, signed by David Yow.
  • A 100 percent cotton, limited edition T-shirt (see below), designed by David Yow, of the cat pun illustration “Catastrophe.” The illustration is in color on a white background, and is a size Large.


  • A gorgeous and colorful exclusive limited-edition cat print by David Yow, signed by Yow himself, and individually numbered out of 150 copies. (This cat illustration is unique to this preorder and does not appear in the book.)

All you need to do is Tweet us your best cat pun, tagging #Copycat AND @AkashicBooks in your Tweet. Puns included in COPYCAT will be disqualified (see the full list below).


  • Only one account per person may be used to enter. Do not create additional accounts to enter more than once; anyone found to be doing so will be disqualified.
  • Only one entry per day will be accepted.
  • No purchase necessary; void where prohibited. Must be 13 years of age or older. Employees and family are excluded.
  • One winner will be chosen and announced on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 5. We will contact the chosen winner via Twitter and ask them to email us within 48 hours with their preferred mailing address. If the winner does not get in touch within those 48 hours, we will move on.
