From The Booking Desk:

Prolific anthology editors Donna Andrews, Barb Goffman, and Marcia Talley are at it again. I am very pleased to host the cover reveal for Three Strikes—You’re Dead! which will be available on Tuesday, April 23 and which is being published by Wildside Press. As you may have guessed, each of the crime stories included centers on a particular sport and the cover is extremely eye-catching. Let’s take a look:

Jacket Copy:

This original collection of sports-themed mystery stories features felonies and foul play across a range of athletics. Readers will find riveting stories involving baseball, biathlon, boxing, cycling, figure skating, swimming, tennis, and more. These clever tales—some penned by award-winning authors—offer something for everyone. From traditional whodunits to historical mysteries, from noir tales to cozies, Three Strikes—You’re Dead! is the collection both mystery and sports fans have been waiting for!

The authors with stories in the book are: William Ade, Kathryn Prater Bomey, Maddi Davidson, Lynne Ewing, Barb Goffman, Sherry Harris, Smita Harish Jain, Adam Meyer, Alan Orloff, Rosalie Spielman, Shannon Taft, F. J. Talley, Robin Templeton, and Joseph S. Walker. And the introduction is written by SJ Rozan.
(This anthology used a blind submission process featuring three judges.)

With this anthology, Donna Andrews, Barb Goffman, and Marica Talley want to support their local SinC chapter, so submissions were limited to members of the Chesapeake Chapter of Sisters in Crime and all the royalties will be donated to the chapter.

Once again, the publication date for Three Strikes—You’re Dead! is April 23 and attendees at Malice Domestic should be able to pick up their copy that weekend to get signed by many of the authors who will be in attendance.
