Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

The next step…

For the next few weeks I’ll be concentrating my efforts on The King’s Blades – Song of the Elves Book Two. I’m currently working on bringing  chapters 9 to 13 to the website for an end of June release and the ongoing serialisation to unfold over the summer, reaching its murderous peak in August.

Murderous – now that’s got you wondering…

After some lovely feedback on A Shadow Falls, I am also endeavouring to bring The King’s Blades out in paperback format in time for your Christmas stocking to be filled.

I trust you are all enjoying the heatwave.  Make the most of it – blink and you’ll miss it – this is England after 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.
