Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Nearly there…

The final draft of A Shadow Falls is coming along nicely – only two chapters left to check and then we will begin the process of putting the book out for sale as a paperback.  Fingers crossed, it will be available to buy in time for the summer holidays.

The novel will also include an exclusive sneak preview of book two of The Song of the Elves, with the inclusion of Chapter One of The King’s Blades.

Every measure is being taken to ensure that the paperback will be an experience not to be missed.  Just wait until you see the cover art…

Thank you to everyone for your patience.

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.
