Ashley’s Ribbon Cover Direction for LOVE FORTUNES AND OTHER DISASTERS

Our cover designers have created some amazing cover directions for LOVE FORTUNES AND OTHER DISASTERS by Kimberly Karalius, and we’re counting on you to choose which one actually goes on the book! We know it’s a big decision, so today we’ve asked Designer Ashley H. to share the story behind this gorgeous cover approach:

Ribbon Cover

This design was inspired by the upbeat tone of the manuscript for Love Fortunes and other Disasters and the actual love fortunes themselves. The cupids also pick up on various parts of the novel and the town itself. Below the fortune, the rain drops are a reference to the twins and their weather charms that play an important role in the story. Overall I wanted to go with a graphic, modern look that would convey the light-hearted feelings in this cute and romantic tale.
