Wiki

"Doug Farrell has penned a sly social commentary on the complexities of personal identity. There are lurid and even unsettling moments, but Farrell's experience as an improv comedian keeps things moving with a smile." --Fantasy 100

"Highly Recommended. This book is something out of the ordinary, and it is written in a humorous way that will appeal to a wide audience." --Midwest Book Review

"Farrell's debut is first-rate, a clever combination of the paranormal, urban fantasy and social commentary. The shallow but lovable heroine tells her tale from a prison cell in a snappy irreverent voice. A delightfully quirky cast of goblins, gnomes, faeries and half-breeds cuts the fashion industry to shreds. There are unresolved conflicts, but you'll have to buy book two for the answers. Rating: 4 Stars HOT." --Romantic Times

"Rating: 5 Stars. GLAMOUR JOB is a fun, fast-paced, and very enjoyable story. It has many twists and turns, and since it is for adults, there are sex and violence, but in a light tone. I do not ever remember reading anything quite like this. The mixture of ghosts and goblins with sci-fi make this plausible and it holds well together. I highly recommend this book to any sci-fi and fantasy readers." --BookReporter

Did you ever start reading a book, and almost from the beginning knew that you weren't going to like it? That's what happened to me when I began this novel. To me, the plot just didn't work on so many levels that I had a hard time following it, or even staying awake at times. I'm a fairly forgiving reviewer, but this one just couldn't cut it, in my estimation. I won't even begin to annoy you with the "plot" of this work. This book may be enjoyed very much by a lot of folks, but one of those folks …

My wife kept looking at the cover of this book and asking me *what* was I reading... :) Glamour Job: A Fairy-Tale for Grown-ups by Doug Farrell is a quirky, off-beat story that quickly grabbed my attention and became an enjoyable way to unwind for three or four days. I don't think I've read something quite like this before...    Laurie Morgan is a model in Chicago, and her life is at a bit of a standstill. She's divorcing her husband and trying to find a more exciting life for …

As the title suggests, this is a fairy tale. It contains goblins, half-breeds between goblins and humans and humans that are goblins disguised by being covered in artificial skin that makes them look like humans. The plot has many twists and turns, it involves everything from a buxom exotic dancer to vats of excrement, battles between humans, dragons, goblins that morph, manipulation of female self-images and pheromones that render the lead female character irresistible to human males.   …
