Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Final Countdown

Okay – the cover art is finished and ready to roll.  The King’s Blades looks sweeter than ever thanks to the dedication of the good people at Design Office in Crewe (well done Stewart!).

However, a stickler for ‘getting it right’, I’m not quite happy yet to release the manuscript for publication.  The second book in the Song of the Elves saga is so important to me that I’m going for yet another ‘final edit’.  This may take a month – maybe more, but the pay-off will be worth the wait.

In the meantime, I’m delighted with the steady sales of A Shadow Falls on Kindle.  Thank you for your continued support!

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 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.
