I have just sold a new story about the King's Blades to Five Rivers Publishing. Title is One Velvet Glove. Fans will recall that a Blade hero named Sir Spender turned up very early in Lord of the Fire Landswhile returning the swords of two Blades who had died defending their ward in a faraway land. He never reappeared and we never learned the details. But hang in there, and in a year or so all will be revealed! I had great fun revisiting Chivial and all my first reader friends did too.
