Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

The Future’s Bright

All the hard work on the second installment of Song of the Elves: The King’s Blades, is done.  We are now in the process of releasing the e-book on kindle, where A Shadow Falls continues to do brisk business.

Following this, we will be preparing both A Shadow Falls and The King’s Blades for release as trade paperbacks.  Hopefully, within the calendar year, you will be able to order both books from any good book retailer.

As for the future, I’ve sidelined the third installment of the Wolves of Winter for now to concentrate on bringing Book Three of SOTE: Sins of the Father, to you by Christmas.

Gulp – there, I said it: another deadline I’ve set myself up for.  Oh well, time waits for neither man nor elf… nor Boarback or Darkling for that matter…  Better watch out Kirik and Eidur, there’s a dark storm brewing…

Until next time, 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.
