Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Back in the groove

Hi, I’m back, well rested but the only man in the 90 degree heat of Kalkan who managed to pick up a stinking cold – back to the lemsips for me!

Thanks to Nick for manning the helm of the good ship S.O.T.E. while I was relaxing…err I mean researching  the next part of the saga.

The book release schedule from here on in is pretty much set – a week or so brushing up the final manuscript for A Shadow Falls, a fortnight making sure the paperback is in tip top condition for your purchase and then the launch.

We’re very nearly there… 

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. This is now available through as a paperback and via amazon kindle as an e-book.. My second, 'Tale of Rhoderica' will be a fantasy version of the great John Ford western - The Searchers. Entitled, To the Ends of the Earth', the novel will be out for Spring 2016. 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.
