Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Writing fun

I’m having great fun creating extra chapters for the middle section of The King’s Blades.  The new action sequence enhances the read, but also allows me to incorporate two new stands of plotline that will be important in future volumes of Song of the Elves.  It also allows me to expand upon the role of a villain, previously side-lined to a minor part in my original manuscript.

Everything is still on schedule for a Christmas release for book two.  Thank you for your continued support.  I’m in it for the long haul, with at least seven books planned in the Song of the Elves saga.  I will bring a short taste of the new action to the website soon.

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.
