SciFi November begins today! Over the rest of this month, I'll be posting reviews of science fiction novels, some new, some old, but all new to me either way. There might even be a few other goodies as things progress, but we'll see.
To kick things off, I'm offering 5 signed paperback copies of my sci-fi thriller debut, Convergence, over at Goodreads. You can enter to win over here! Be sure to add it your Want To Read list, too.
Due to shipping costs, I can only make this open for US residents. The contest runs until Nov. 29, so get your entries in now.
Added bonus: If you win a copy of the paperback, or opt to purchase a physical copy from any retailer, you can sync it up with BitLit and get the digital version for free.
Here's the description:

A Kobo Next Sci-Fi & Fantasy Reads Selection
Jonah Everitt is a killer, an addict, and a memory thief.
After being hired to kill a ranking officer of the Pacific Rim Coalition and download his memories, Everitt finds himself caught in the crosshairs of a terror cell, a rogue military squadron, and a Chinese gangster named Alice Xie. Xie is a profiteer of street drugs, primarily DRMR, a powerful narcotic made from the memories of the dead. With his daughter, Mesa, missing in post-war Los Angeles, Everitt is forced into an uneasy alliance with Alice to find her.
Mesa’s abduction is wrapped up in the secrets of a brutal murder during the war’s early days, a murder that Alice Xie wants revenged. In order to find her, Jonah will have to sift through the memories of dead men that could destroy what little he has left.
In a city where peace is tenuous and loyalties are ever shifting, the past and the present are about to converge.
Publisher’s Weekly called CONVERGENCE a “smart splice of espionage and science fiction. … frighteningly realistic. Well-drawn characters, excellent pacing, and constant surprises make this a great cautionary tale about technology and its abuses.”
