Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Next Steps

All the team at SOTE HQ are delighted by the start that A Shadow Falls and now The King’s Blades have made on kindle.  If you’re reading the e-book versions please drop us a line via this website and let us know what you like so far and how we can up our game for you in the future.

Currently, we are entering a phase of preparation to release both books as trade paperbacks.  This would mean that you would be able to order them through any good book retailer in the world – more on this in the next few weeks.

Finally, I’m moving on apace with the editing and re-writing of book three of SOTE, Sins of the Father – I’ll give you an update on my progress next week.

Until then, 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.
