Hey y'all! Today I'm excited be be part of debut-author Eliza Tilton's Choose-Your-Own-Adventure blog hop to celebrate the release of her YA fantasy, BROKEN FOREST.

If you’ve landed here during your adventure, skip all this and go below.
If you’re wondering what’s going on, go here to start your own adventure! 
And may The Creator bless you on your journey.

Going east is the dangerous choice, and even though you want to run in the other direction, you don’t.
The village is running low on nectar and if the hunts aren’t successful in collecting vast amounts, you risk going through the winter season with none. You remind yourself of how important this is as the trees’ crowded branches begin to close off the moonlight.
Silence fills the forest, and there’s nothing but the cold air to comfort you. You search for water, knowing the flowers tend to grow nearby. It isn’t long before a small stream crosses your pathway.
You hop across and follow the stream deeper into the forest.
A thunderous noise replaces the silence.
You sneak behind the next tree and search the area. In front of you is a small waterfall, not large. The clear water plunges into a pool, and around the pools edge are black flowers.
The wolves are known to roam this area, yet you don’t see any. Could it be luck? You think so, and
slowly walk to the water. You manage to collect all the nectar you can find without incident. It’s a victorious night!
With a bounce in your step, you head back to the clearing, thinking of all the ways you can brag about your bravery until you spot a wolf print.The wolf print doesn’t look fresh, but maybe you should be careful, or start running!

A)    Running sounds like a fantastic idea. Go here
B)     No need to fret. It’s only one print and winter wolves hunt in packs. Go here


Want more? I thought so! :)

How about a giveaway? Eliza has BROKEN FOREST awesomeness up for grabs. Check out the Rafflecopter giveaway below:

And in case you missed it, here's the BROKEN FOREST blurb from Goodreads:

Hopeless he'll never be more than the boy who didn't save his brother, 17-year-old Avikar accepts his life as the family stable boy, trying to forget the past. But when his sister, Jeslyn, is kidnapped, the thought of losing another sibling catapults him on a desperate quest. With his best friend by his side, and using the tracking skills he learned from his father, he discovers Jeslyn has been taken, kidnapped by one Lucino, the young lord of Daath, a mystical place thought only to exist in fables.

And Lucino has plans for Jeslyn.

Last but not least, here's a bit about Eliza...

Eliza graduated from Dowling College with a BS in Visual Communications. When she’s not arguing with excel at her day job, or playing Dragon Age 2, again, she’s writing. Her stories hold a bit of the fantastical and there’s always a romance. She resides on Long Island with her husband, two kids and one very snuggly pit bull.

You can stalk Eliza on Twitter, Tumblr, her website, Pinterest and Facebook.:)

Congratulations, Eliza, and happy blog-hopping everyone! :)
