The Baggage Handler Blog Tour & Giveaway by David Rawlings

About the Book

In a similar vein to The Traveler’s Gift by Andy Andrews or Dinner with a Perfect Stranger by David Gregory, The Baggage Handler is a contemporary story that explores one question: What baggage are you carrying?

Three people take a flight that will change their lives forever.

Fresh off a run-in with his wife, harried businessman David disembarks the plane angry and impatient.

Gillian thought she would be more excited about coming to her niece’s wedding, but she is just hoping to survive.

Malcolm has gambled everything on this trip to start his fledgling artistic career. To him, failure means working in hardware in what his father calls “a real job.”

After each picks up the wrong suitcase, they make their way to a mysterious baggage depot in a deserted part of the city. There they meet the Baggage Handler, who shows them there is more in their baggage than what they have packed.

A simple baggage mix-up at the airport is more than an inconvenience when it forces three people to face the baggage they are unknowingly carrying around. Click here to purchase your copy.

About the Author

David Rawlings is an Australian author, and a sports-mad father-of-three who loves humor and a clever turn-of-phrase. Over a 25-year career he has put words on the page to put food on the table, developing from sports journalism and copywriting to corporate communication. Now in fiction, he entices readers to look deeper into life with stories that combine the everyday with a sense of the speculative, addressing the fundamental questions we all face.

The Baggage Handler is a fictional tale that is very thought provoking which will make you assess your own baggage. It makes you think and reflect on your own life situations.

The story presents three different people, all through different sets of circumstances, insisting on carrying around past baggage they refuse to deal with that stifles the person they were intended to be.


I loved David's writing style which reminded me of James Rubart. The Baggage Handler is a modern day tale that anyone can relate to and I highly recommend reading it.


The book was so interesting that I couldn't put it down. The characters are down-to-earth, everyday ordinary people damaged by life's situations. You simply must put this one on your must read list. You don't want to miss it!
