New Jen Shahade Book: Play Like a Girl: Tactics by 9Queens

From Jen Shahade (two-time winner of the U.S. Women's Chess Championship):

My latest book, Play Like a Girl!: Tactics by 9Queens  was just released from Mongoose Press. The book is filled with chess puzzles and combinations, all executed by female chess champions. A perfect prequel to my first book, Chess Bitch: Women in the Ultimate Intellectual Sport, I hope Play Like a Girl! will motivate girls and women to enter the male-dominated chess field. The book is available at, amazon, Mongoosepress or USCF Sales. All author royalties go to 9 Queens initiatives to bring chess to those most in need of its benefits.

 Daniel Meirom and I created the book trailer below, Lipstick Checkmate. It features me and Abby Marshall, the first woman to win the Denker tournament of high school champions, playing on a chess set, composed of items from long forgotten make-up bags, luxury brand promotions and drugstore bargain bins. If you like it, pass it along or tweet/facebook it! Also see some production stills on

Finally, if you would like to report on or write about Play Like a Girl, contact me for more information, the official press release or a review copy.

Thanks for all your support and have a great weekend, Jennifer
