BOOK BLAST: ELLERSLIE by William Francis Plus Giveaway!

Ellerslie BannerAbout The BookPublication Date: March 23, 2021

Did you know author F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda lived in a haunted house?

It’s the Jazz Age, it’s Prohibition and aviator Charles Lindbergh is the most famous person in America. Author F. Scott Fitzgerald rents a mansion in Edgemoor, Delaware called Ellerslie hoping for a quiet retreat so that he can write his next novel following The Great Gatsby.

April Ross, the first and only female history major at the University of Delaware, is commissioned by the owner of Ellerslie to research the estate’s history for a potential sale. At least, that’s what April is told. In the days ahead, April’s historical research uncovers Ellerslie’s former owners dating back to 1810. She interacts with the Fitzgeralds, yet endures unexplained occurrences and visits by an unknown woman. Against her better judgment, April eventually accepts that the woman is a ghost and realizes that her true purpose is to find out who this woman is, or was, and what happened to her in real life.Excerpt

  1. HI Dayna: Thank you for your post about my new novel, Ellerslie. I thoroughly enjoyed the research and effort it took to bring about its publication. I hope everyone who enjoys a good ghost story mixed with historical figures, especially fans of F. Scott Fitzgerald, will get a good fright and learn something about this writer of The Great Gatsby. Regards, William Francis
