Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Paperback coming soon

I await with baited breath the arrival of my proof of The King’s Blades paperback.  I’m really excited about the art work.  Many thanks to Stewart at Design Office in Crewe for his vision on this one.

Trusting the project to Stewart was not a leap of faith, as I had total trust in his understanding of the project, but his interpretation of the mood of the book is excellent.  I can’t wait to bring it to you in the very near future.

Look out for publication dates of the paperback in forthcoming news items.

Until next time, 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 lulu.com 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.
