So, like I said, this book takes place in a beach town, and the ocean figures heavily into the story, particularly whirlpools. The protagonist is 16 years old, female, brown hair and eyes, if that is something you need to know. Her World Diver is (as described in the book) a 50 foot tall robot, bronze, with a domed head and a steam punk kind of look. The thread of light, another important story element, is about 14 inches long and emits bright, white light. You do not have to include these elements at all, but if it helps you to know these details when you are designing, awesome. I'm not looking for an super photorealistic illustration. I prefer stylized art. This book is intended for teenage audiences from the age of 14-18, so appeal to the target audience is important to me. A look that appeals to teenagers and other readers of young adult fiction is my top priority. Book dimensions will be 5.5 inches by 8.25 inches or thereabouts, length is 225-250 (formatting has not yet been finalized, so I'm not 100% sure on page count, but it will be between those numbers). The mood of the story is fun and adventurous. There are some mild dark elements at the end, but it never gets very bogged down in serious drama. I have no preferences for font styles.
