Today on my blog I have The Funny Adventures of Little Nani. On my stop there is a spotlight, excerpt, guest post, and giveaway.
Cinta Garcia de la Rosa is a Spanish writer who has loved the written word since she 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.
What would you like your readers to take away from your book?
My book is mainly addressed to children, but adults can enjoy it too. Why is that? Well, because the message I want people to get from the reading of my silly stories featuring Little Nani are universal for everybody. Little Nani is always positive and happy. I would like my readers to feel a bit happier and a lot more positive after finishing my book. I would love them to think that we create a lot of drama from tiny things and that maybe we should look at life in a more carefree way, just as children do. That as far as adults are concerned.
For my little readers, the ones to whom the stories are addressed, I would like them to understand that life can be very funny, but only if we do certain things and we learn certain lessons. For example, it is better to be nice to people, it is not a good thing to tell lies about our friends, it is very important to be clean and healthy,... Little Nani will try to teach all those messages while she creates a little bit of mischief. Why? Because life is not perfect, but we can do the best of it if we learn how to behave with others.
Basically, what I want my readers to take away from my book is a lot of fun and positivism. If I can get them to be smiling while reading my stories, I will be immensely happy.
Thanks a lot for hosting me today!

From “Little Nani and the Flying Muffin” by Cinta Garcia de la Rosa
“How can you say that you are bored when I am reading to you one of the funniest books I have read in a long time?” said Horse in an exasperated tone. When Little Nani shrugged her shoulders, Horse had retreated to his favourite rocking chair in a corner of the room.
“Can I go out and make angels?” asked Little Nani, who was upside down, standing on her hands.
“Don’t be silly. You can only make angels in the snow, not in the rain,” said Horse without raising his eyes from the book.
“Can I go out and jump in the pools?” asked Little Nani, who was hopscotching all over the room.
“If you go out you will get soaking wet, and then you will catch a bad cold, and then you won’t be able to go out for a long time,” said the impatient horse. He didn’t like being interrupted while reading.
“Then I will cast a spell to make the sun come back,” said Little Nani, trying to take her magic wand out of her pocket while rolling on the floor. Big Billy, watching her efforts to take her magic wand out, and fearing that Little Nani could make the rain turn into a tempest, quickly pecked Little Nani’s hand.
“Ouch!” exclaimed Little Nani. “That hurt!”
She tried once more to take her magic wand from her pocket, but this time it was Skinny Nikki who pecked Little Nani’s hand.
“Ouch!” exclaimed Little Nani again.
It was pretty clear by now to Little Nani that she wasn’t going to have any fun that day. She thought that the rain was boring and, folding her arms with an angry look, she sat down in a corner.
