Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Mission Accomplished

I am pleased to report that at long last I’ve finished work on the revisions of A Shadow Falls.  It feels like a major milestone has been reached and I can’t wait to bring you the finished product. 

Work will now begin on putting the paperback together.  We are still on schedule for a release to public sale by the end of September, all being well.  Watch this space for further details.

The books has undergone extensive revision in my attempt to make the adventures of Kirik and Eidur as exciting as possible.  When the book is ready for release we will be removing the current version of the novel from the website, but will be replacing this with six free chapters from the final version

We hope that this taster of the finished product will tempt you to purchase your own copy of A Shadow Falls, and encourage you to be one of the first to enjoy the Song of the Elves saga in print.

We will of course keep you informed of the proposed website changes, but if you wish to access free copies of the book via the download, then this will be the last complete calendar month to do so.

Of the future, I am now turning my attention to the second installment of The Wolves of Winter, which will be available for free from this website in time for the Christmas holidays.

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.
