Rings of Enchantment:
This week, Alicia Rivoli is my author guest. With two books out, Rivoli is on her way to staking a claim in the fantasy genre.
Read on for more:
What can we expect from you this year?
I am working on a young adult fiction currently titled A Life Apart. Although everything has been put on hold until August.
What genre do you like to write?
I love writing Middle Grade Fantasy. There is something so rewarding about a child reading something you imagined.
What genre is your favorite to read?
I love to read anything that catches my attention.
Where do you get your ideas?
A lot of the times my stories form as I write, while on occasion I actually dream the story. Which is where The Enchantment Series came from.
What was the best thing ever said to you about your work?
While at a book signing, a woman saw me and ran to my table. She told me her son had been asking her for months to buy him Rings of Enchantment because Mere Enchantment was one of his favorite books. I also had a mom email me and ask about Rings of Enchantment because her child had put it on their Christmas list.
Who is your favorite character and why?
My favorite character was Chloe. I related to her in so many ways. At times when I was writing from her POV I found her doing some of the same things I had done when I was her age.
What is the hardest thing to write? Setting/Character Development/ Climax or Intense Scenes…
I had the hardest time writing the battle scenes, and the scenes with Jacan. My imagination was going faster than I could write and it made it difficult to separate the good ideas from the bad.
What other hobbies do you have besides writing?
I love to sing. I’ve also recently started to run, which I’m enjoying more than I ever thought I would.
Who is your favorite author?
I have several favorite authors. It’s hard for me to pick just one. I love Stephenie Meyer, Rick Riordan, Jane Austen, Nicholas Sparks, and several others.
Pride and Prejudice, Twilight, and Double Exposure. Plus several more.
Is there anything else you want readers to know about you or your books?
I’m very thrilled with the response I’m receiving from The Enchantment Series. I never imagined that my stories would be enjoyed by so many. I just want to say thank you to every one that has read The Enchantment Series. If it wasn’t for the readers, our job wouldn’t be as much fun.
