Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

If you’ve just found us, then welcome on board, it’s going to be a bumper year here at Song of the Elves.  If you’re an old hand coming back for more, then thanks for all your support so far and here’s what to expect in 2010…

In just a few short weeks, the first few chapters of The King’s Blades will be made available as a free ‘taster’ download.  As we speak I am editing the second book of Song of the Elves and I’m trying to radically trim the time to release date.  More to follow on new schedules as the spring progresses.

The Wolves of Winter Part 2 will appear a little later in the year as work on The King’s Blades takes priority.

As always I am grateful for your feedback on any of my projects.

If you are new to the site, may I recommend to you the paperback edition of A Shadow Falls.  Its the start of the Song of the Elves saga – not to be missed.

Up the Elves in 2010!

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.
