Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Baby Joy!

Having recently come into fatherhood, my life is filled with joy unlike anything I’ve known before.  Schedules for Song of the Elves may need a ‘little tweaking’ as a result.

I’m still managing to find some time each evening to chip away at the preparation of Book Two of the Song of the Elves: The King’s Blades for publication in paperback.  I have narrowed my focus solely to this project for the time being, and will get to Wolves of Winter Part III hopefully by the winter.

So, please bear with me as my wife and I embark on this new, exciting chapter of our life.

Chapters 9 to 12 of The King’s Blades should be on the website in time for the summer holidays.

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.
