Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

The story continues…

If you’ve just reached the end of A Shadow Falls and want to know what happens next, fear not, the next part is on its way.

Having recently completed the final edit of A Shadow Falls, I am now turning my attention to Book Two, The King’s Blades.  This originally had a working title of Sons of the Dragon and I completed it along with book three, Sins of the Father twelve months ago.  Progress should be fairly swift on books two and three as a result of all my earlier drafts and I look forward to bringing these to you in the new year.

To end the year on an exciting note, Nick and I are currently exploring ways of letting you get your hands on a paperback copy of A Shadow Falls.  Watch this space for more info on this project.

Finally, thanks to all of you who are downloading the chapters and sharing this first foray in to publishing.  I appreciate your support and I’d love to know what you think of the tale so far.

There are many miles for Kirik and Eidur to travel yet.  I hope you’ll be along for the full ride.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my readers.  Up the elves in ’09!

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.
