Watch Me Recreate The Crown's Game Cover | Blog Tour

Thursday, March 10, 2016

   Hey guys!! Welcome to my stop on The Crown's Game blog tour, hosted by Brittany from Brittany's Book Rambles. I was going to do a review but then I thought I would try something else I've never done before on my blog. Recreate an entire book cover!!

   I've been wanting to start making DIY's and other sorts of art crafts. But for the cover of The Crown's Game, it turned out rather more difficult than I anticipated. I originally wanted use paper only and cut out the parts. But just look at the water reflection and the sky! That's when I decided I would use watercolors for those areas and use construction paper for the crown-looking palace. 

   Now I'm no artist but I think it turned out much better than I expected!! Also stay tuned for the awesome giveaway for your chance to win an arc and a tote bag inspired by The Crown's Game.

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.

Here's My Entire Process Recreating The Cover

Evelyn Skye was once offered a job by the C.I.A., she not-so-secretly wishes she was on "So You Think You Can Dance," and if you challenge her to a pizza-eating contest, she guarantees she will win. When she isn't writing, Evelyn can be found chasing her daughter on the playground or sitting on the couch, immersed in a good book and eating way too many cookies. THE CROWN'S GAME is her first novel. Evelyn can be found online at and on Twitter @EvelynSkyeYA.
