Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Kindle surprise

Great news – sales of A Shadow Falls, the first book in the Song of the Elves saga, are going well on Kindle – at one point I hit the top 60 of the fantasy chart on Amazon – alongside Dean Koontz no less!  However, he has sold a few million paperbacks beforehand.  Still, it seems selling a couple of kindle books a day is helping me hit the dizzy heights.  You can download the book yourself from

In the meantime, I’ve very nearly finished the ‘word level’ check of The King’s Blades.  We are still on course for an Easter release.  This will be a double whammy, with the paperback available through and the e-book through kindle.

Until next time, up the Cyber-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.
