Today I have special visitors on the blog! The titular character from The Funny Adventures of Little Nani has stopped by for an interview. I can’t wait to see what she has to say. AND Little Nani’s creator, Cinta Garcia de la Rosa too! I hand the blog over to them:
Thank you for visiting this wonderful blog today so you can know a bit more about Little Nani, her stories, her world, and her author. OK, her author is not as interesting as Little Nani, but what can we do? They go hand in hand, so please bear with her.
Why are we here today? Because Little Nani is suffering a series of changes. “The Funny Adventures of Little Nani” was published for the first time last September 2012, both in print and in ebook form, on Amazon and Createspace. However, along the months, I started feeling less enthusiastic about my book, thinking that the cover was dull and boring, and also thinking that the stories could be improved, maybe going through some extra editing and proofing. So that’s what I did, and now I am much happier about the result and I trust that I will start getting many more sales. Why? Because I will make the books available not only on Amazon and Createspace, but also on Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and Feed-A-Read.
There will be also many different options to buy the books. Do you want to buy the whole set of stories? You can do it. Do you want to buy just some stories, the ones you think you would like? You can do it too, since I will publish the stories individually on Smashwords. So you see, different options to match different customers, different readers.
Once all this is settled and the books are republished on all those retailers, I will start to do the same process with the second book in the Little Nani series, which will be available next Fall.
Follow the whole blog tour since I will be announcing all the news in the different blogs!
Little Nani is a little girl who likes helping people. However, when she helps people the results can be a bit unexpected. Why is that? Little Nani is a witch! Or at least she wants to be a witch. With her magic wand, she will try to cast different spells to help her friends, but she won’t be successful all the time.
Follow Little Nani in her funny adventures and meet her extraordinary friends. Funny ostriches, horses that love reading, super-fast turtles, grumpy zombies… Little Nani has lots of friends! You can also draw your own characters!
Little Nani is willing to become a good witch. Will she manage to do it? Who knows? Read the stories and discover what happens next!
Cinta Garcia de la Rosa is a Spanish writer who has loved the written word since he discovered she was able to read books at age 5. Since then, she has become a bookworm and reads around 100 books every year. She also writes, every day, compulsively, even in the middle of the night. You cannot control when inspiration hits you, can you? She writes in English because she is convinced that in a previous life she was British, so writing in English feels more natural to her than writing in her native language. Yes, she is crazy like that. Cinta Garcia is the author of “The Funny Adventures of Little Nani”, a collection of short stories for children, and “A Foreigner in London”, a short story published on Smashwords. She is a member of Independent Authors International (iAi).
Anya’s Interview with Little Nani
Anya: Hi, Little Nani! I’m so excited you’re here. I loved reading your stories. But for everyone who hasn’t, can you introduce yourself?
Little Nani: Hello, Anya! I am very happy to be here. Well, my name is Little Nani and I am 8. I have always wanted to become a witch, so I took an online course and now that I got my magic wand, I try to help my friends… but it seems that my spells can be a bit wrong sometimes. But my intentions are always good!
Anya: Can you describe where you live for the visitors?
Little Nani: I live in a very nice house in the middle of the country, quite close to a cornfield and the forest. There is also a river nearby, where we can have lovely picnics surrounded by lovely trees and flowers. If you want to visit us, just close your eyes, picture the house in your mind, and say “I believe in magic”. You will appear right there.
Anya: I understand you’re a witch! Wow, where did you learn magic?
Little Nani: As I said, I took an online course. Actually I haven’t finished the course, but I keep on working on it.
Anya: If you had to pick one animal to have as a pet, what would it be?
Little Nani: A turtle, because I’m not allergic to them and they are lovely.
Anya: Cookies or cake?
Little Nani: Cake!!! Where is it? Where is it?? Oh, there is no cake? *pouts*
Anya: How do you feel about R.O.U.S.?
Little Nani: I don’t like rodents of any size. But I know for sure that my creator loves “The Princess Bride”.
Anya: Do you like to read?
Little Nani: Ugh, no. Horse keeps on telling me that I should read to become smarter, but I prefer playing in the forest or casting spells.
Anya: What is your favorite book?
Little Nani: Any story by Beatrix Potter, because the adventures are lovely and I love the animals appearing in her books.
Anya: If I gave you a paint brush, what would you paint?
Little Nani: Rainbows, butterflies, and ladybugs.
What do you have in store for us next?
Little Nani: I will star in a new set of ten stories which will be titled “Little Nani and Her Friends”. I will also live some great adventures in a set of stories of the choose your own adventure type. I think it is going to be fun.
