All Bags Go To Cleveland

by C.S. Hale


GENRE: Paranormal Romantic Comedy



Angela Grimalke appears more blonde bombshell than the gremlin she is. But there is no denying her supernatural truth after her clumsiness gets her fired from her modeling career. Forced to work for her family’s upscale airline, she spends her days slinging luggage and wishing her parents would get off her back about finding a nice gremlin guy to settle down with.

Relationships were the last thing on her mind, not that her family would accept that.

For Dave Ford his frequent business travel made it next to impossible for him to find a woman who could tolerate his chaotic schedule. Which is why he appreciates Angela. Neither of them are looking for love, but Dave feeds Angela's addiction for chocolate while she provides him with the chaos to keep him on his toes.

However, as Angela’s parents bombard her with a parade of "eligible" gremlin men at their weekly family dinners, she finds herself torn between who she longs to be and her family’s expectations. Will she give in and live the life of magic they want for her? Or risk it all by to confessing to Dave that she isn’t human?



Focusing on the sparks of energy skittering along her fingers, she sent her magic into the printer. Angela might look like the cover model she’d once been but no one would guess that Windsor’s check-in counter was currently staffed by a pair of gremlins. Dave’s day—or rather night and morning—were about to become a little more exciting than he’d imagined. Dave would have a nice, relaxing flight to London while his garment bag went to Cleveland.

She tamped down the tendrils of guilt rising in her gut. It needed to be done. It was this bag or some mishap not of her choosing. Besides, who in their right mind would check a Louis Vuitton garment bag? First class contained specially built closets in which to hang them. She searched Dave’s thoughts again.

Where have I seen her before?

Angela snapped right back out and jerked her head down. She attached the claim sticker to his boarding pass and handed it to Dave, keeping her focus on the counter. Hopefully, her smile hid the panic now whirring in her chest like the engines that would take Dave across the Atlantic. “Enjoy your flight, Mr. Ford.”

“Always do.” With a small salute, Dave headed toward the security queue. What were the chances he’d be so cheerful in the morning?



My Take on Critique Groups:

You need them. But you need the right people. So much of the story is in our head and being able to have someone tell you if you got it on the page is critical. Author Steve Berry credits his success to the “ladies” in his writer’s group who ripped his writing to shreds for years. Until he learned what not to do and avoided the things that they had called him on.

I have one critique partner right now. I wish I had a couple more but finding the right fit can be tricky. Bethany has gone from gangly teenager when we first started working together to a master of deep POV that I aspire to. I trust her to make my writing better as does she with me. It’s also nice to have people to use as a springboard when you get comments from your editor that you disagree with. I’ve used my monthly writer’s group for a fourth and fifth opinion on things a few times.

Which brings me to the point that while you write in a room alone (or in Panera with your ear buds in) you’re not truly working alone. Having a group of fellow writers, especially a diverse one in terms of background, experience, and publishing format, is invaluable. I don’t often use my monthly group as a critique group but they hold a wealth of publishing knowledge for me to tap into. And they’re writers. It’s nice to have a tribe of people who get you.
