Virtual Blog Tour, Spotlight, & Giveaway - The Glamour Thieves by Don Allmon


Howdy y'all. I'm Don Allmon and I got a debut book name of The Glamour Thieves. It’s the first of a three book series called The Blue Unicorn. It's a grim kind of fantasy, a cybernetic near-dystopia, a rough-edged romance with few promises except for the ones that matter. Ain't nothin' worth earnin' that wasn't hard won. Join in on the comments and win yourself some loot.


About The Glamour Thieves

JT is an orc on the way up. He’s got his own boutique robotics shop, high-end clientele, and deep-pocketed investors. He’s even mentoring an orc teen who reminds him a bit too much of himself back in the day.

Then Austin shows up, and the elf’s got the same hard body and silver tongue as he did two years ago when they used to be friends and might have been more. He’s also got a stolen car to bribe JT to saying yes to one last scheme: stealing the virtual intelligence called Blue Unicorn.

Soon JT’s up to his tusks in trouble, and it ain’t just zombies and Chinese triads threatening to tear his new life apart. Austin wants a second chance with JT—this time as more than just a friend—and even the Blue Unicorn is trying to play matchmaker.

This is Don's debut novel and I think he did a might fine job and I am excited to see him grow more as an author. 

This is like World of Warcraft characters come to life in some sort of dystopian new age society. 

What I like most about this story was JTs "implants". He could connect mentally with all his toys. By toys I mean cars, drones, cameras,etc.. He controlled them with his mind, but if he really wanted to, he could also feel what they felt. Like the wind blowing across the surface, etc... 
That last scene was kind of ludacris,  but I loved it anyways. 

What I wasn't to thrilled about with this story was JT and Austin's "relationship". It confused me. Were they in love, were they not? What is happening now? Is Austin a liar? Am I the only one who feels awkward when Buzz is around?

Even by the end of the story I still feel kind of unsure about these two. Will there be more in the next book? I hope so.

Let's give a little shout-out to  JTs apprentice, Dante. I'm excited for her story. She seems like she's going to be pretty badass...and I'm wondering what the ghost will lead her to.

Synopsis A bounty hunter’s partners to lovers’ story. The hunt is on… and he’s the prey.

Bradford (Ford) King was sure he had the rest of his life mapped out. Though he was no longer a SEAL Lieutenant, his brother was home safe and he had a job that still allowed him to satisfy his hunger for hunting bad guys. Life was simple, no distractions or complications – at age forty-six – that’s all Ford wanted. What hedidn’twant was his work partner, sniper/watchman, Dana, giving him s**t all the time.


Dana Cadby had grown up labeled a roughneck from the wrong side of the tracks. He’d fought, scrounged, and survived despite a father that constantly told him he couldn’t.
