Dnevniki Presentation Moscow

Hello everybody,

I'm in Moscow today, at at 5 PM local time I will give a Press Conference to present my new book "Diary of a Chess Queen" at the biggest Moscow bookstore on Novy Arbat Street.

The Russian edition is out (its official title in Russian is «Дневники шахматной королевы») and I'm very happy of how it turned out. It's the story of my whole career from when I started to play chess at 5 years old, till after I became women's world chess champion. Apart from a careful selection of my very best 64 games, commented in detail, I give my inside story about how it is to become a chess professional, and how it is to rise to the top, with all the difficulties that accompanied my path, through triumph and disappointment.

The English edition is being printed right now by Mongoose Press and will hit the shelves on December 1, 2009. You can order both versions right now at, and I will gladly autograph your copy to you or your loved one at no cost to you.

Note that the English edition will be shipped as soon as I get it in stock, in time for Christmas delivery. The Russian edition is available immediately.

Feel free to write to me if you have any questions.

Best chess wishes to you!
Alexandra Kosteniuk
Women's World Chess Champion
