Wesley Chapel, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2014 -- Ashley's Shadow, a book by Charlie Carlson, is a fiction based upon the real murder of Ethel Allen in Eau Gallie, Florida in 1934. The crime is still unsolved. The story centers around character Brad Kirby, a writer for an obscure tabloid called "Unsolved Magazine". His job is to dig up unsolved cases around the country and write them up for the publication. But when he stumbles onto the case of Ethel Allen his life is forever changed in many ways. Ashley's Café and Lounge in present day Rockledge, Florida, is built on the building of Jack's Tavern, an establishment that Ethel Allen was known to frequent. Patron's and staff at Ashley's have experienced all sorts of strange occurrences, such as unexplained shadows and a ghostly reflection in the ladies' room mirror.

This film is an all volunteer project, but John Johnsen and his crew need the funds to cover the costs of services and props that simply cannot be donated. Perks include autographed copies of the book all the way up to Associate Producer status and credits with accessibility to sets during shooting.

The funding budget for this project is $6,000. However, this campaign will receive all funds raised even if it does not reach its goal. Funding duration: March 13, 2014 - April 30, 2014 (11:59pm PT).
