About the book

Excerpt: 23:27 by H. L. Roberts
23:27 is a beautifully written novel about how stressful situations are not always what they appear to be. H.L. Roberts takes you on an emotional journey keeping you on the edge of your seat the entire time.
23:27 touches on the very sensitive topics of suicide and mental stability when the pressures of society get too difficult to handle for even the most stable individual. Lilith Rose is the lead singer of the popular rock band, United Misfits. and she is tired of all the lies, secrets, and heartache that came with the price tag of stardom. After years of dealing with forced contracts, she does the unthinkable and flees to a small run-down hotel on the outskirts of Los Angeles, where she hosts her tell-all Livestream. Finally, the truth is out there, and Lilith has a decision to make. Life or Death…

Excerpt:

Time.

In the beginning, that was all there was. Seconds, minutes, hours pressed together, forming a mask of illusion that could never be dropped. A wall of steel grew around their hearts, one that couldn’t be broken. The United Misfits image could never be distorted.

It was wrong. It wasn't right. No matter what her heart told her, it was wrong. Every flutter that skated through her stomach. His every skipped heartbeat, meant nothing. She was nothing. He was nothing. They were nothing.

It had been said many times, by many different people, the most broken person in the world could hide behind a perfected smile and a fake laugh. This could carry out a person's persona, something that never even existed to begin with. That would never exist. Laughter and smiles filled with fake truths and real lies could hide what that person wanted to show, to tell, the truth.

In the end, she wanted to break free, but chains restrained her, blocking each move before she could make a single one, turning her into a prisoner, a captive in her own life.

Those chains squeezed tighter and tighter, never loosening their grip. They choked her from the inside, wrapping her tighter with every deceitful accusation and fake persona they put in her life. Deadly thoughts clouded her vision and stomped through her mind. Both of their minds.

Their hearts were noosed, yanked in every which direction. Like a snake. Until it all stopped. Until they both stopped fighting. And when the fight dissipated, she could no longer turn away from the deceitful ways they had so graciously bestowed on her.

About the Author:

H.L. Roberts is a writer from a small Kentucky town. She comes from a big family, and often finds herself sitting with them around the TV watching movies, and just staying close, which is how she believes a family should be.

Reading is one of her passions, and so is advocating for mental illnesses, as well as epilepsy. She wants to bring awareness to the invisible illnesses—the ones people know so little about. Using her other passion—writing—she does that and more.

She is working toward her degree in Marketing and English Literature, and hopes to finish that soon. When she does, she’ll have even more time to fall into a good book, whether she’s writing it, or reading it.
