Win a White Rabbit

Cover designed by the fabulous S. L. Johnson
Cover designed by the fabulous S. L. Johnson for Fox Spirit Books

I am very pleased to announce that my book White Rabbit is out NOW from Fox Spirit Books. Just take a gander at that wonderful cover by S. L. Johnson AKA the Queen of Everything. I can’t wait to hold the shiny in my own hands, so I’ve decided to share the wealth and give away a signed copy of the book to one lucky person here. And I’ll throw in a little chocolate because it’s Easter (well, Annandag påsk anyway).

Here’s the deal for the White Rabbit contest:

  • To enter, you must post here on the blog
  • You enter by posting the best rabbit joke you know (or can find — I can’t remember jokes myself)
  • The best one wins one paperback copy of White Rabbit plus bonus chocolate (if you don’t want the chocolate, that’s okay) which I can sign and/or personlise as you wish
  • ‘Best’ will be determined by me (or assigned by random choice if I can’t decide) but my decision will be final even if arbitrary
  • There is no cost to enter
  • The contest is worldwide
  • You are not obligated to review the book for Amazon, Goodreads, Library Thing or your blog, but it would be aces if you did
  • Contest ends Monday April 28, 2014 at noon GMT.


Sometimes the shadows that haunt us 
           are what lead us back to the light
Disgraced former police detective James Draygo has sunk as low as his habit allows, working as a fake psychic despite his very real talents. When a media mogul’s trashy trophy wife gets gunned down at his tapping table he has to decide whether he can straighten up long enough to save his own skin. He may not have a choice with Essex’s loudest ghost bawling in his ear about cults, conspiracies and cut-rate drugs. Oblivion sounds better all the time…

Best Selling Crime Writer, Richard & Judy Summer Read Winner James Oswald says:

‘Being a fan of mashing up genres myself, I was of course delighted to see someone else playing fast and loose with things. The central idea of the story – a real psychic pretending to be a fake – is delicious, too. The mystery was deftly played with just the right balance of action and character interplay to keep me turning the pages. The seedy side of London is nicely worked as well – not too threatening, as befits the style of book, but still gritty enough. The cast of supporting characters are nicely drawn, too. Kate writes with a fluid, easy to read style.’

    A man in a movie theater notices what looks like a rabbit sitting next to him. “Are you a rabbit?” asked the man, surprised.
    “What are you doing at the movies?”
    The rabbit replied, “Well, I liked the book.”

      Mmmm choccie buns.

  4. Ok, here goes:
    Why did the rabbit cross the road? To get to the other side. Why did the pervert cross the road? He was stuck in the back of the rabbit…

  5. Tony Lane says:

      Oh dear, that’s painful! 😀

  8. Kemberlee says:

    Two white rabbits hopped into a muddy puddle. Three hopped out. 😉

      1. Kemberlee says:

        At least you can tell it to the kids. Good thing for you, the book isn’t called White Sheep. I have an arsenal of sheep jokes . . . white or otherwise 😉

        1. katelaity says:

          LOL, the advantages of living in Ireland!

        2. Kemberlee says:

          Oh, no! I knew the sheep jokes from long ago. I was raised by grease monkeys, don’t forget.

  9. Crispinus says:

    Why did the white rabbit miss his own funeral?
    He was late.

    1. katelaity says:

      I see what you did there! 😉

  10. Kemberlee says:

    Did you hear about the egg laden rabbit who jumps off bridges?
    He’s called the Easter Bungee!

    What Kind of Books do Rabbits Read?
    Ones with Hoppy Endings.

    And one for the road —
    An infant rabbit was orphaned. Fortunately though, a family of squirrels took it in and raised it as if it were one of their own. This led to some strange behaviors on the part of the rabbit, including a tendency for it to avoid jumping, but instead to run around like the other squirrels. One day the rabbit was feeling really sad, so it went to its step-parents to discuss the problem. After explaining to them how it felt different from its step-siblings, they gave him a big hug and said, “Don’t scurry, be hoppy.”

    On that note, thank you, and goodnight! 😉

      This one gets my vote 😀

  11. Hannelore Cheney says:

    2 rabbits were running away from foxes. They found a barn and hid under some straw. The one rabbit said to the other one: Well, we can try and make a run for it or we can outnumber them. The other one said: You idiot, we’re brothers…

    1. katelaity says:

      Oh, that is WONDERFUL!

  12. jayandrew25 says:

    What do you get if you pour boiling water down a rabbit hole?
    A hot cross bun.

    1. katelaity says:

      Hee! I like that.

  13. jayandrew25 says:

    Why was the rabbit in hospital?
    He was having a hare transplant.

  14. meanlouise1 says:

    Apologies if this is a duplicate, bit of chaos (on my part) resetting my password. And now I’m distracted realizing my avatar is me & a white rabbit. Total coincidence. So yes, where were we? Oh yes: What weighs 7 tons and is 65 million years old? A rabbit riding a T. Rex!

  15. jayandrew25 says:

    This is turning into a bun fight. If another lassie wins, I might Thumper.

    1. katelaity says:

      Oh groan — if this keeps up I will pull all my hares out.

  16. Alec McQuay says:

    I knew a rabbit once who went out and bought himself a wonderful new toasted sandwich maker from Argos. Soon enough he was cooking up a storm, making toasted sandwiches with cheese, cheese and tomato, ham and cheese, ham and pepperoni, Hawaiian ones, ones with just ketchup, he was in his element and every time I saw him he’d tell me of some new concoction. I didn’t see him for ages, and when I went to see him he was looking thin and frail, and his sandwich maker was notably absent from the kitchen.
    “Are you alright mate?” I asked him. “You look like you’ve been ill.”
    “I have been,” he said. “It was Mixinmitoasties.”

    I am so, so sorry.

    1. katelaity says:

      Ow ow ow ow — I may have to lie down for a while after that one! 🙂

  17. Duck season!
    Wabbit season!
    Duck season!
    [E. Fudd shoots D. Duck and ruffles his feathers.]
    You’re despicable.

    1. katelaity says:

      Ha! I like that one.

  19. A rabbit came into a shop and asked, “Got any carrots?” The seller answered, “No!”
    The next day the rabbit came again and asked, “Got any carrots?” The seller replied “No!”
    Next day the rabbit came and asked, “Got any carrots?” The seller shouted, “No! And if you come again and ask for carrots, I’ll take nails and hammer you on the wall by your ears!”
    Early next morning the rabbit came back and asked, ” Got any nails?” The seller answered, “No!” The rabbit asked, “Got any carrots?”
