Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Long Cold Winter

Work on ‘The Wolves of Winter’ is inching forward. I have nearly completed the climactic scene to the third instalment entitled ‘Kill the King’. Once this is done I will progress onto the final segment featuring Thomas and Mallakai. Its time for young Thomas to take centre stage.

I would also like to record the passing of my dear father, Arthur Elsworth Shepherd. He was and always will be a great inspiration to me.

Finally, Song of the Elves Book 3 has hit a few publishing glitches but will be with you later this year, when I will also begin work on Book 4, The Lost, The Lonely and the Damned.

Thank you for your interest and support.

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.
