Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

The Eyes have It…

Into the last four chapters of the final edit and conjunctivitus has struck – just a minor delay, as I will still have completed the book by the end of this week.

All being well, The King’s Blades will be on sale as a paperback through by Monday 9th May and soon thereafter on kindle through amazon.

The book is shaping up really well, and I hope that you will find it an exciting sequel to A Shadow Falls, that is both satisfying in itself and a taste of things to come for the rest of the Song of the Elves saga.

Providing my eyes don’t drop out of my head, the secocnd installment is on its way.  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.
