Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Stay warm in the Big Chill

Well, here we are, properly into 2010 and the Big Chill of Britain goes on.  Temperatures hit minus 14 outside Song of the Elves HQ this week – almost stopped me getting to the pub! (Nearly froze my nose off getting home though.)

Here’s a few ways to stay warm this winter:

Curl up by the fireside with your own copy of A Shadow Falls – follow the link at the top to purchase the paperback.

Get your slippers on, grab a warm brew and snuggle up by the computer to check out the Tales of Rhoderica.

Check out the new page featuring the history of The Wolves of Winter.

Whatever you decide to do, keep safe and remember – the Wolves are watching!

Up the elves!


Coming next week… news on the first down-loadable chapters of The King’s Blades

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.
