The Tsar's Guard Parade: A Cover Reimage & Giveaway!
Hi guys! Welcome to my stop on The Tsar's Guard Parade! I've been racking my brain for something fun to do and I finally came up with something! Before we get to it, here's a little about Evelyn Skye's The Crown's Game~

Goodreads Summary:
Vika Andreyeva can summon the snow and turn ash into gold. Nikolai Karimov can see through walls and conjure bridges out of thin air. They are enchanters—the only two in Russia—and with the Ottoman Empire and the Kazakhs threatening, the Tsar needs a powerful enchanter by his side.

And so he initiates the Crown’s Game, an ancient duel of magical skill—the greatest test an enchanter will ever know. The victor becomes the Imperial Enchanter and the Tsar’s most respected adviser. The defeated is sentenced to death.

Raised on tiny Ovchinin Island her whole life, Vika is eager for the chance to show off her talent in the grand capital of Saint Petersburg. But can she kill another enchanter—even when his magic calls to her like nothing else ever has?

For Nikolai, an orphan, the Crown’s Game is the chance of a lifetime. But his deadly opponent is a force to be reckoned with—beautiful, whip smart, imaginative—and he can’t stop thinking about her.

And when Pasha, Nikolai’s best friend and heir to the throne, also starts to fall for the mysterious enchantress, Nikolai must defeat the girl they both love . . . or be killed himself.

As long-buried secrets emerge, threatening the future of the empire, it becomes dangerously clear . . . the Crown’s Game is not one to lose.

Now here's my little reimaging of the cover ;)

What do you guys think? The idea just sort of came to me when I was looking at the cover and saw my orange tabby sitting there with his back to me. I thought, what if I put Ripple on the cover? He's a pretty big kitty so I thought it'd be fun to do it on a flip scale where everything that was small on the original cover became bigger and what was big became small. I'm not very artsy and am no expert with photo image software so I do apologize for the lack of professional look to it. But I really hope you all like it!
Oh and here are some blooper pictures ;) It took ages to get a good shot of Ripple since for some reason he really seemed to love that castle/crown~ He wouldn't stop going after it or just staring at it. He was pretty in love ;)

Mine~   Gimme!
