Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Merry Christmas to all!

Best wishes to all who have supported me through the first two years of my project, and a very warm welcome if this is your first visit to SOTE HQ.

2011 will be another year of significant milestones, with the release of both the second book of the Song of the Elves saga, and the third installment of the Wolves of Winter mini-series.

The King’s Blades will be released at Easter, with Wolves of Winter III following in the autumn.  Once W.O.W. III is completed I will offer it for free download from the website, to be followed by a papreback version of the first three tales in one handy trade paperback for your 2011 xmas stocking.

So, sorry once more for the delay in The King’s Blades, but I am sure you’ll agree the wait was worth it when the final copy comes up for sale.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Up the Elves in 2011!


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.
