Illinois Author Marlon S. Hayes Releases New Novel - 11:5911:59 by Marlon S. HayesAuthor Marlon S. Hayes is pleased to announce the upcoming release of his new novel, 11:59. Scheduled for release by Motina Books on August 23, 2022, the book is already receiving rave reviews from readers and reviewers.

In a race against time, a man acknowledges the meaning of life.

There comes a moment in everyone’s life when everything finally makes sense. You know that where you are is exactly where you’re supposed to be.

It’s 11:59, and Rob Jackson is reflecting on his life - the domino effect that each event had on the next throughout the years of his life. During his childhood in a small town in Mississippi, he learned how it feels to be an outsider, and the love for his mother, books, fishing, and his grandmother, are what kept him full of hope.

Although Jackson strives to build a relationship with his biological father, the constant search for his approval only results in heartbreak and tragedy.

Throughout this journey, he discovers nothing is ever as it seems. He tries to overcome his bitterness, loneliness, and disappointments, with the help of the women he meets along the way. Octavia, a mentor and guide, Dolores, a friend and partner, and then Nora, the woman he believes to be his soulmate.

When the final domino falls, Jackson is staring at the clock, with time being his ultimate nemesis.
