Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Paperback draws nearer

Ever closer, we are edging towards the release of the paperback version of A Shadow Falls.  Hopefully, by the end of this weekend, we should be ready for a final proof read, after which we will be able to make the book available for purchase.

This week I get to see the final version of the map of East Rhoderica – can’t wait.  All the pieces of the jigsaw will then be assembled this weekend, with a view to releasing the book for sale in the last week of September/first week of October – the perfect autumn read!

As I mentioned before, changes will then take place regarding the availability of downloadable material from the website, so make the most of the free version of the book now, but make sure you come back for the link to the new edit of A Shadow Falls, available in paperback only.

Next stop, its the Wolves of Winter Part Two – Thomas is older and a little wiser, but he still hangs on every word of his grandfather, as Mallakai unfurls another tale of the heroic warriors of the cold north.

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.
