BLOG TOUR – LITTLE NANI REVISITED

30 May

Banner

 

I am so pleased today to welcome author Cinta Garcia de la Rosa to Old Things R New-Onisha

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!

BLURB

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!

AUTHOR BIO.

CintaAuthor

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).

I love your book has drawing sections. Do you have any plans for children to be able to submit their drawings to a website devoted to Little Nani interactions?

 

Thank you! I really thought that including drawing sections in the book would be fun for the children and, definitely, it would also turn the book into an interactive entertainment. So I included them.

I have had thoughts of doing just that: creating a space for children to submit their own drawings and create a kind of “fan board” where I can pin all the pictures. But first I need a proper website for my stories. I am planning on creating a Little Nani website, fully devoted to the stories and to the children. On that website, I will include a section for the submission of the illustrations drawn by my little readers. Even for the big readers too! I know of a couple of my readers who are not so little and would like to draw some Little Nani pictures (yes, you all know who you are).

I am really looking forward to seeing pictures drawn by children who have read and enjoyed my silly Little Nani stories. I would display them very proudly on my website.

Thank you, Onisha, for hosting me on your blog!
