Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Paperback Latest

Final preparations are being made for the release of A Shadow Falls as a paperback.  In order to make this book as perfect and special as possible for my loyal readers I am currently undertaking a final revision of the manuscript.  Scenes are being tightened, plot lines strengthened and every care is being taken to make the debut of A Shadow Falls in paperback an experience not to be missed.

Fans of the downloadable version will not be disappointed; the plotlines remain the same, but everything will feel a little sharper – the dangers a little starker, the emotions of the characters a little more raw.  Here at Song of the Elves HQ excitement is growing; we can’t wait to make this ‘ultimate’ version of A Shadow Falls available for purchase as a paperback. 

The front cover looks great: many thanks to the people at Design Office in Crewe for your vision of Farsee Forest – perfect!

We’ll give you a chance to view the cover art in the forthcoming weeks and news on how to purchase the paperback will follow soon… 

For now, long live 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.
