BLISS!, the first published book in Jean Criss’s unique My Pain Woke Me Up series, is a novel that follows a young widow who later contends with a breast cancer diagnosis, an abusive marriage, and painful divorce proceedings. Based on the author’s own life experiences, the story emphasizes everyone’s ability to survive difficult circumstances and continue their personal pursuit of happiness, even in the darkest of times.
The trilogy continued with a second installment, Legal Injustice. Another fictionalized retelling of the author’s personal experiences, Legal Injustice focuses on the complexities of local court systems and how societal influences can make achieving true justice a significant challenge, if not an impossibility.
Criss completed the My Pain Woke Me Up trilogy with Live Your Dreams, a non-fiction book that encourages individuals to develop entrepreneurial habits and to envision a brighter future for themselves. The third book in the series serves as the perfect punctuation to the trilogy, which culminates in a message of self-reliance and inner strength.
Criss is completing a fourth book - short reality stories about life's idiocies as a small business owner and entrepreneur in today's workplace. She shares with a vast audience the good, the bad and the indifferent about being a startup and the challenges she has faced, from callus partners to launching in today's marketplace.
