Interview with Zujeily Clemente

When did you first start writing?
For the year 2000? I would have about 10 years old when I made my first short story inspired by a series of cartoons that were happening at the time of my childhood. I remember I did not like at all that disastrous series finale so I made one myself ...

I think consisted of 4 pages on both sides. He had no chapters, nor much enrealidad organization ... but from then awakened something in me that did not return to sleep ...

until the day of continuous today writing and improving every day that passes.
What motivated you to become an author?
Nothing and no one really motivated me. I just love writing and I do it because it's my passion. every day I have a dozen ideas easy hanging my head and try to write as much as I can ...
Describe your desk
well ... Oo

a desk surface glass with metal legs. soil left put the pc, even right next to the same books or whatever books who uses at that time. In one corner I have fixed a basket with rubbers, pencils, markers, staples and staplers.

Just off I have a shelf where I have folders stacked with their titles to see its contents encouraged by this book with the flap up and some notebooks where I write a story book.

I think that would be all ...

Oh yeah! side of the desk even have a ground plug multiplog extension where the external hard drive and battery from the laptop.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?

My first unpublished story was about Mother Earth. A little story about a girl who is injured at the time of felling trees and characters (who now can not remember who they were) were given the task to go to the human world where trees are cut down and stop this practice that this killing their elemental creatures and mother earth ... that girl that controls everything around us.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My last book? My last book was Ojos de cristal.

talks about a boy who sees ghosts and life which bears the burden you have. as her family tries to help but is more than what they support, their years in a horrible institution where almost died in a fire as soon awakens to find that everything that lived so far is not as believed.

It is a story that took me many years to write and write, edit, erase it and add the characters that ... even had growth stages XD. until what is today with its 17 chapters telling a story full of mystery, but touching on everything that humans do not know usually label it insanity or fear.
What is your writing process?
1. the idea comes to mind
2. organize a complete overview on the history (just write on paper the whole story without chapters or divisions ... just let fly the story out of my mind to the paper where I write)
3. then divide the story into chapters and chapters into scenes.
4. already captured and organized with the story touch the characters ...
5. create a tab for each character, dividing by major (and cataloging its importance in history). on the ad also it says if you die during the story or the end and why.
6. decicir the relationships of the characters and translate them on paper.
7. with everything written and organized usually leave a few blank sheets for other ideas that emerged during the writing Vaan.
8. write !!!!
What do you read for pleasure?
Yes, i read for pleasure. my most passion are the ficcion book (ej. Anne Rice, J.K.Rowling.), romance histories (ej. Pride & Prejudice) or some books i interest in the resumen XD.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
- Kindle for Android (i buy books in the amazon plataform( i love read in the celular o tablet! my read continue in all devices! XD)
- Moon+ Reader (for my books i download legally free in the internet ej. archive of our own "")
- Wattpad (all histories are free!!!! i recomend the autor "nisa-arce")
What topics do you like most to write?
I like science fiction and romantic themes. especially the theme magic ... but usually write everything, everything depends on my muse inspired encouragement nancy.
What are you working on next?
Now that I concluded Crystal Eyes have decided to start a project that took years prostergando. a saga of four stories which are really one, but four different generations.

the first book to talk about a story that in part explain some things in the following books will be very important. The shadows in the magical world. The protagonist is Salome, a young sorceress who accidentally without knowing how it ends in the world of shadows.

In a world where everything is upside known. good people turn out to be malignant and malignant in our "world" are the most caring people. on a journey full of intrigue and where you have to learn to live with his own shadow living within it to make it back to their own world and live the life that lay ahead.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I am originally from Puerto Rico. My family is not very large, only 2 sisters, my parents and me. But we are all very intellectual, each in their own way. My middle sister and I are writers, my mom likes to write but not usually do very often but there was a time to tell stories to us every night.

I think that precisely those nights of stories and an infinite number of books I used to read in the library, all this with my own proactive imagination was what inspired me and what continues to inspire me to this day.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy for me to write to express a part of me in every bit of writing. I usually write according to how I feel at that moment. so there are times that I have written over the same time XD.

if I'm sad story reflects the pain, loneliness and despair or even the protagonist.
If I'm glad the story shows the euphoria felt by the protagonist when making your passion.
and even if I'm scared or something ... a volatile character full of fear it is the protagonist of a story.

The simple act of writing excites me to levels never be able to describe!
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean a lot to me. your comments are what make me illusion or making me move on if I lost the inspiration for writing. For them I propose writing or by their desire to know the end I try to finish each start writing ... I know it's very frustrating to start reading something that ultimately never heard it ends.
Who are your favorite authors?
My favorites authors...

- Anne Rice
- Jane Austen
- Nisa Arce
- Goddessniquel (fandom)
- J.k.Rowling

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading a good book, browsing the internet, updating my blog or even on the phone with my friends. when I do not do any of those things I'm usually alone at home with my family or relaxing in my home XD
How do you approach cover design?
because each cover is unique and I hope to be consistent with each writing.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The call of the forest

It was a story about a wolf that is stolen from her home and sold for a sled dog. The book tells the story of all that suffers the dog to find the ideal love ... to that love by which, like his former master, Buck (also called canine) would give anything to protect him.

It is a beautiful story that is in my rereading one day XD
What are your five favorite books, and why?
1. Mujercitas - Es mi primer libro en la lista por que su historia me maravilla cada vez que la leo. la union de las hermanas, pero la diferencia de cada una haciendolas unica y sin embargo una sola cosa las une... la imaginacion de una hermana que al final se vuelve una famosa escritora de su tiempo.
2. Cronicas Vampiricas - que digo... simplemente me chiflan las historias de vampiros!
3. Las Reglas del juego - es una historia que aun no he terminado de leer (recien publico el segundo libro). es la historia de una pareja gay en el dificil mundo del futbol. y esa historia apesar de creer que no me agradaria demasiado en un inicio me a llegado al alma... y me he enanomado de sus personajes como hace muchisimo tiempo que no me ocurria.
4. la saga irene - me maravillan las historias sobre las fortalezas de una mujer en un mundo de hombres. donde demuestran que las mujeres deben estar con un hombre por amor y no por obligacion, que no necesitan de la proteccion de un hombre para ser felices y desarrollarse. y esta historia toca todos estos temas sin que te des cuenta en realidad e incluso mas.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Generally I tend to go by the cover or title for quite appealing. when not ... eh often recomendarmelo or started reading it somewhere and then decide to buy it.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
So far I have not published any book, so I have no answer for that question.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I hope that helps to bring my writing beyond my friends and family. and that others may enjoy reading what I write.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
