Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

What’s next?

As I mentioned last week, there will be two further installments of The Wolves of Winter mini-series, with part two appearing later this year.

In the meantime I am now returning to the job of completing The Mirror of His Soul, a stand alone novel unconnected to the world of Rhoderica.  I will be placing a sample of this tale on the website in the not too distant future.

However, there will continue to be new Rhoderica-related additions to the website in the coming weeks.  I’ve got a section on Creatures of Rhoderica planned, and I aim to add a timeline to help readers navigate the History of Rhoderica.

I would also like to add a comments page to share some of the feedback you have been giving me.  In order to help with this I would ask that you start your feedback comment with the line ‘O.K. to print‘, so that I display only the comments that people are happy to share.  (Of course, only your name will be attached to the comment and not any details concerning your e-mail address.)

If you don’t want your comment printed, I’d still like to hear from you.  Many thanks to all of my readers who have sent words of encouragement over the course of this year.

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.
