About this project

THE PROBLEM

Are you tired of turning on the TV and seeing inappropriate content? Tired of opening a book and blushing because your child read it before you? 

Bad language, sex, immodesty, and violence plague today's children.  Anything from television to magazines, video games to books, all seem to contain one or all of these.

As a mother raising two young boys, I found myself constantly on guard. I am scouring the internet to read reviews, talking to other parents and/or teachers just trying to find something clean for my kids.

Famous actors, musicians, and authors all over the world are dropping their guard and giving in to what they believe society wants...FILTH!

THE SOLUTION

It's time to take a stand!

I decided years ago that I wanted to be a writer to get good clean books to my children, and others all over the world. I want to get my books in the hands of children to show them that you don't need filth to have a good story.

Mere Enchantment and Rings of Enchantment is just that, a good story, packed with plenty of action, adventure, and magic, without the garbage. These two books are just the beginning.

ABOUT THE BOOKS

The Enchantment Series was written with children in mind. I am currently working on other good clean books as well, the next of which is a young adult fantasy about the perils of Death. 

Mere Enchantment began with a dream, and formed into a fantastic journey of four friends on a search of self discovery.  With dragons, wizards, magic and more it is sure to keep you or your child entertained.  This Middle Grade/Young Adult fantasy series begins in modern day, and travels to an unknown kingdom hidden deep beneath the depths of Mirror Lake.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

My name is Alicia Rivoli.  I am a 31 year old 'domestic engineer', which is a fancy way of saying I am a stay at home mom. :). Writing became my hobby about eight years ago, after dreaming about Mere.  I decided to write the story for my then, two year old son.  What started as a bedtime story for my him, became a two book novel, and a complete love of writing.

I was born and raised on a farm in Idaho, where I had plenty of time to think about stories, so it should have been a given that I would eventually want to share those stories with others.

I also enjoy reading, and have a pretty good collection of favorites, from J.K. Rowling, to Jane Austen, and everything in between.

WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT THE BOOKS

"The title is very fitting--the story is enchanting and the ending made it so I know I will come back for more." (Cassandra Giovanni -- Author of The Sight Trilogy)

"Rivoli takes us deeper into the world of Mere in this final installment of the series. Her world building is phenomenal and her characters riveting. You'll find yourself cheering Chloe and Preston on to fulfill their destiny."  (Charity Bradford - Author - The Magic Wakes)

"What makes a fantasy world become a fantasy world? Of course the magic does! This was a huge theme in the novel, and Alicia could not have done better! The spells and the background of the whole kingdom is very ingenious and while it still is a typical fantasy story, it contains that spark that keeps the reader from putting the book down. Even the monsters and enemies were well done and there powers reflected off of their own personality." (Bookmark Reviews)

"A modern fairytale for all ages to read!" (Rae -- Amazon Review)

"Loved the story line, and all the characters." (stharrisandco -- Amazon Review)

"Kept me on the edge of my seat just wanting to see what happens next!" (Theresa Smith -- Amazon Review)

HOW YOUR CONTRIBUTION HELPS

This is where I need your help. 

Publishing a book is expensive, especially when you choose to self-publish. By funding my project, Clean Books For Kids, you are helping me cover the cost of getting my newest book (to be released early 2015) professionally edited, cut the cost of the cover illustrations, and also help me maintain the proper formats for all eBook devices. By backing this project, you will also be helping me do more school visits to help educate today's youth on being a writer, attending book fairs, conferences and signings, and help me get more books into libraries and schools across the country. I want to fill their shelves with the BEST available material, and your contribution will help me start the process.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for taking the time to learn more about me, my books, and most of all, my campaign!  I am so excited to start this journey with you! 

Also a huge shout out to all my fans and readers all over the world.  It was because of you, that I decided to take it a step further, and launch my campaign to get clean books to kids.

Risks and challenges

Very little Risk! The Enchantment Series is already complete and ready to read! However you aren't just funding The Enchantment Series, you are funding future works as well.

Stories take time to come together. I hope to have my new book available to the public in 6-12 months, but editing and publishing deadlines can hit bumps. I will keep backers and fans in the loop, and do my best to make the process go smoothly.
