Jean Criss Gets Bold with "Legal Injustice"

(New Providence, NJ) -- New Jersey Author Jean Criss is proud to announce that her second book, "My Pain Woke Me Up - Legal Injustice", is being released in December 2012, concurrent with her first book, "Bliss" (both published by AuthorHOUSE). "Legal Injustice" addresses serious topics about her experience dealing with the legal system with humorous illustrations and cartoons to set the tone, ultimately leading her to the question: Does justice truly prevail? Contact for direct soft cover and e-book pre-holiday orders on sale now. All media outlets including AuthorHOUSE,, and Barnes & Noble will carry her books after the release date.

"Legal Injustice" shares the author's experiences dealing with attorneys in the local court system. Jean says, "I know I am not the first woman who has encountered defeat, belligerence, defiance, baffling opposition, unfounded court decisions and rulings in the legal justice system. And, I am sure I'm not the first woman to question whether there is an internal brotherhood/sisterhood among "counsel" resulting in what I believe is unfair decisions, despite facts or findings".

Jean's three-book series, "My Pain Woke Me Up - Bliss, Legal Injustice, and Live Your Dreams" (2013 release), are fictionalized accounts of a true story, documenting many of the author's life experiences, lessons, and best practices learned along the way. "Live Your Dreams" is a story about entrepreneurship -- how to dream big, live your dreams by unleashing your inner creativity and making your dreams come true.

Criss is the single mother of two teenagers and resides in northern, New Jersey. She designed and self-published her three-book series, drawing upon her full media experience.

Is "A War On" Going On?
I hate to use phrases like The War On... in any context beyond sarcasm because it trivializes the subject you're talking about. It takes an issue and reduces it down to simplistic us vs. them dynamics. And yet there is a real sense that there is a War On in Asbury Park.
Malt House Limited Brings Home Brewing To Mt. Airy
(PHILADELPHIA, PA - JULY 9, 2012) -- Beer lovers are an interesting breed. Once their palate locks on to the myriad of tastes available via craft beers, they not only leave the mass-produced brands behind, but often get the urge to brew their own suds. Yet, while interest in home brewing has soared throughout the last decade, the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia lacked its own home brewing supply store until recently.
BOOK REVIEW: The Crankamacallit
Today I will build you a Crankamacallit / With pieces and parts from my carpenter's kit / With buttons and levers and yes, of course, CRANKS! / With switches and gears and an old baseball mitt.
Bask In My Glory For A Price!
In a recent New York Times article, it was reported how bookstores are charging patrons for the privilege of attending an author's appearance at that same bookstore all the while, one assumes, engaging in the process of selling the book. It is, in some bizarre way, like somebody dialing up infomercials on demand.
Birtherism = Racism
Many years ago, I was friendly with a guy who I thought very highly of. One day he used the n-word. Then I noticed that he used it on a number of occasions and also made other racially insensitive remarks. I ended the friendship.
