I can't find anything on Amazon - when is it being published? When I enter it in the search engine Lionheart comes up. Is it another title?

It's the follow on from Lionheart, it's not even been published yet, in fact I don't even know if SKP has finished it!

She is still writing. Originally Kings Ransom was supposed to be published in 2013 but according to SKP she couldn't finish under such a timeline. My understanding is now it will be published in 2014 but to hold us over they are re-releasing Sunne- I think maybe just in the UK but I could be wrong.

Personally while disappointed with the push back of the deadline, I love that SKP takes so much time with her books to ensure perfection!

Thanks for that - I couldn't see anything on SKP's website.

SKP has been posting parts of it on her website. It goes up to the first year of King Johns reign. Plus there appears to be two really unpleasant villains in this tale.

I'll have to have another look - I must've been looking in the wrong place!

You might try following her at FB, she's always posting about her progress and/or medieval historical events. From a post she's put up today:
I am still at Rouen with the first Richard, where a raucous Christmas celebration turns into a somber wake. Has anyone noticed how many people die in one of my novels?
At home with a good book and the cat...
...is the only place I want to be

I have to say that I've managed to wean myself off facebook- it was taking up too much time (which could have been used for reading historical novels}

I think SKP shares those posts on GoodReads too, so that's an alternative to FB. I don't follow her on FB though so I don't know if all the posts appear on GR as well.
