Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Final Scene Tear-jerker for SOTE 3

Emotionally exhausted, I  sagged against my keyboard, Sins of the Father completed…

After eight long years, the third chunk of the Song of the Elves saga is complete.  In 2005, whilst writing what will now become Book 4 of SOTE, I realised that I needed to fill in a bit of background in the life of my exiled character.  The result was a thousand page manuscript with a working title of The Summerlands, which is now emerging onto kindle and lulu as Song of the Elves Books One to Three.

There was joy and sorrow in penning the last lines of Sins of the Father; the scene produces the biggest cliff hanger yet and I can’t wait to get to telling you what happened next when the scripting of Book 4 gets underway next year. 

Now begins the final proof read and word level check – we are definitely on schedule to be bothering your Santa’s wish list.

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.
