After 18 months wrestling with Bet Your Life, which was meant to be book 10 in the series, I’ve decided to can it. It’s pretty much done from a word count viewpoint, but it’s just not up to the standard of the previous Malloy stories and I’d rather leave it unpublished than taint the series.
Unfortunately, although I unpublished the eBook two years ago, there are still old print versions of Bet Your Life on sale from various dealers. That was the original version which was, effectively, book 2 in the planned Frankie and Eddie series, which never got off the ground (in sales terms at least; reviews were good). So, you might still see it for sale and by all means read it if you care to. Just bear in mind it is not counted now as part of the Eddie Malloy series.
There will be a new book 10, but quite when that will be I don’t know. I’m going to take a break for a while and write a book in a completely different genre, a story that’s been in my mind for years. As well as getting it done, I’m hoping the break will refresh my mind for future Eddie Malloy books.
When I have news of book 10 it will appear first on this website and be sent to mailing list subscribers.
