Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Super-slick ‘Sins’ almost ready…

Things have moved on apace with Sins of the Father, Book Three of Song of the Elves. I’ve now received back the final edit from Col, which I have to say is tremendous. I am delighted with the time he has put in to ironing out chinks in the narrative and bringing his critical eye to make this the best read it could possibly be. Action packed, full of gusto and sorrow, this is the read of the saga so far.

I am now doing a final grammatical and word level check on the manuscript before I hand it over to the technical team (Nick) for final preparation.  Col and I then have plans to have a look at books one and two, to see if we can deliver a super-slick edit of those first two instalments to enhance your reading pleasure.

I look forward to bringing you news of release dates for Sins of the Father within the next fortnight.  Until then, 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.
