Exclusive Trailer Reveal for RUMP by Liesl Shurtliff – Plus SIGNED Giveaway

RUMP by Liesl Shurtliff, sounds pretty epic – I mean, a retelling Rumpelstiltskin? OH YES. Naturally, I’m uber-excited to reveal the trailer for Liesl’s debut, which hits shelves from Random House, April 2013. First, check out the (gorgeous) cover, read the synopsis, and watch the trailer! And don’t forget to enter to win a signed copy of RUMP!

Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin

In a magical kingdom where your name is your destiny, 12-year-old Rump is the butt of everyone’s joke.

Rump has never known his full name—his mother died before she could tell him. So all his life he’s been teased and bullied for his half-a-name. But when he finds an old spinning wheel, his luck seems to change. For Rump discovers he can spin straw into gold. Magical gold.

His best friend Red Riding Hood warns him that magic is dangerous—and she’s right! That gold is worth its weight in trouble. And with each thread he spins, Rump weaves himself deeper into a curse.

There’s only one way to break the spell: Rump must go on a quest to find his true name, along the way defending himself against pixies, trolls, poison apples, and one beautiful but vile-mannered queen. The odds are against him, but with courage and friendship—and a cheeky sense of humor—Rump just might triumph in the end.

Liesl Shurtliff

Liesl Shurtliff was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, with the mountains for her playground. Just like Rump, Liesl was shy about her name, growing up. Not only did it rhyme with weasel, she could never find it on any of those personalized key chains in gift shops. But over the years she’s grown to love having an unusual name—and today she wouldn’t change it for the world! Before she became a writer, Liesl graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in music, dance, and theater. She now lives in Chicago with her husband and three young children, where she still dreams of the mountains. Rump is her first novel.

And now, the moment you’ve been waiting for: THE TRAILER!

    Hi Sir, You are really good writer.

    It is really helpful article about the topic of iceybooks.com I so much interest about your article. I know it is not any simple information. This is very nice post! I will bookmark this blog as I have The one worry that keeps most grownups up at night is the worry that they might not have enough cash to maintain their way of life or live and retire in comfort. With the blowing up, increasing increasing Free penny stock alerts, and higher taxation growing, this is a very actual problem for most of the inhabitants. Instead of being scared, traders need to take action to ensure that the above circumstances will not impact them adversely should they ever happen.

    Thanks For Only You Create That cute Article.
