Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Mere days away

I wait with baited breath for the final proof of the paperback version of A Shadow Falls.  Its being printed right now, and after a few days proofing the copy we’ll be able to make the first installment of The Song of the Elves available for purchase.

As I’ve mentioned before, once the book is available we will be making a few changes to the content on the website, so its your last few days to download the entire prototype version of the novel from the website.

Even if you’ve read and enjoyed A Shadow Falls as a download I’m hoping you will get hold of a paperback copy of the new enhanced version – the book has gone through two substantial edits and re-writes to make it the sparkling read I always hoped to bring you.

Thank you all for keeping the faith.  Not long now…

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.
