Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Local talent

The Wolves of Winter will be available as a free download during the Easter Holidays, so re-visit and while away thirty minutes in the frozen wastes of Rhoderica’s most northerly kingdom.

In the meantime, I’d like to give a plug to local indie band The Lockdown.  They’ll be headlining at The Box in Crewe on Friday 3rd of April – a great way to kick-start the school holidays.  I’ve got the pleasure of working with the boys on Wednesday night and wish them all the best for this prestigious gig.

Finally, we are edging ever closer to bringing you the paperback version of A Shadow Falls.  More news soon…

Up the Elves!

About The Author

Writing has been my main form of escape since a child. Before teaching, I earned a living on a little known national newspaper, before discovering I also had a calling for the classroom. The first embryonic scribbles for Song of the Elves emerged in 2000. I began writing the first trilogy as one continuous manuscript entitled The Summerlands, which I finally completed in the Winter of 2007. In the intervening years, I've been transforming this first draft into three distinct instalments of the saga. "A Shadow Falls" and "The King's Blades" have already seen the light of day. "Sins of the Father" will follow shortly. There will be a second trilogy to complete the saga, which I intend to commence work on in 2012. Book four is entitled "The Lost, The Lonely and the Damned". I have also written a series of short tales entitled The Wolves of Winter, set in Rhoderica before the elves invaded the continent. I will bring this to you in coming months through kindle. I have scripts for a number of stand alone "Wolves" novels. Other projects include a fantasy version of the great John Ford western - The Searchers. I am also half-way through a manuscript for a science fiction novel, entitled The Mirror of His Soul. Time and health permitting, these will all eventually see the light of day.
