I Ran Away to Find Myself
Jillian Linares is a writer, teacher, and spoken word poet from Queens, NY. She is an avid traveler, enabling "I Ran Away to Find Myself" to be written in 8 different countries, capturing the true thoughts and emotions of a traveler far from home. Jillian loves adventure and learning through exploration of the world and literature. This is proudly her first novel.
Lucas thought his summer would involve preparing to move back to NYC for college, until he runs away from home and boards a flight across the world to escape the biggest regret of his life. He lands in Byron Bay, Australia— a surfer town with the most brilliant, daring, and intriguing person he's ever met: Skye Carter. Except Skye hates Lucas before she even meets him because of her twisted past. As Lucas learns to surf with the local legends, Skye reluctantly opens herself up while pushing Lucas out of his comfort zone with cliff jumping, underwater caves, and adventures in the outback. But just when Lucas feels like things are getting better, the repercussions of running away return to haunt him.
Book cover type
Don’t know yet
Task: design a cover based on a particular scene in the book. Scene: Main characters, Lucas and Skye, jumping off of the ledge of a mountain toward the ocean holding hands. Vision for art: In the foreground, a silhouette of the characters jumping off a cliff and surfers riding waves in the distance.
What to avoid
Characters having distinguishable features... I just want their outlines/silhouette
