Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all my readers, and a big thank you for your continued support throughout 2009.

As you are tucking in to your turkey, spare a thought for Rulnik and the boys, for as I leave them for a Christmas break they are currently hunkered around a fire on the northern moors, piecing together clues to a series of horrific attacks.  You’ll be able to discover whether they crack the case in Wolves of Winter II, coming in Spring 2010.

Watch out also for a taster of The King’s Blades.  Book two of The Song of the Elves will ship in the fall, with book three, Sins of the Father hot on its heels.

2010 is going to be a bumper year for Dogman Publications.

Until next year, peace and love to you all.

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.
