Diary and DVD in stock December 9
Hello to all!
I am pleased to announce that I have heard from my publisher that I will receive both my new book "Diary of a Chess Queen" and my new DVD "My Best Chess Games" on December 9.
The book "Diary of a Chess Queen" contains my whole life story, with at least 1/3 of the book being the story of how I made it to the top, earning the title of Women's World Chess Champion, from the day my Dad gave me a chess set and taught me the moves, at the age of 5. It contains exerpts from my diary when I was a kid, where I write about my thoughts at the time. The text part of the book reads like a novel. The remaining 2/3 of the book consists of 64 games very well analyzed. You can see the quicktime ad here. The DVD "My Best Chess Games" contains the most important 10 games of my career, from the first win at the age of 10, including my first win against a male Grandmaster, and of course the key games which allowed me to get all my major titles such as Russian Champion, European Champion, and World Champion. The DVD is professionally produced, includes video introductions of each game and analysis of the games which is guaranteed to increase your understanding of chess.
You can pre-order the book and/or DVD at my web store. Add a comment to the order or send me an email and I will gladly write any personal or inspirational message for you or your loved one at the front of the book. It makes for a perfect Holiday gift!
