Brain XP is written by 16-year-old author Christine Marie Frey. The book encompasses Christine’s journey through self-harm, visual and auditory hallucinations, running away, hospitalization, and her forced removal from school. The subsequent experiences and Christine’s diagnoses of depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder led her to seek out material written by other youth who’d gone through similar experiences; the absence of that material prompted her to create the Brain XP Community and write this book and the corresponding soundtrack. Each song in the Brain XP Soundtrack is original and written by Christine, based on each corresponding chapter in her book. Her goal is to provide hope to other youth battling mental illnesses and everyday teenage struggles, letting them know that they are not alone, they are not crazy, but rather their minds are special - they can think in ways other cannot. Their BRAINS are EXPANDED - they are BRAIN XP!

Journey into the World of the Unregistered.

When Freedom Has a Price, Who Will Stand Unafraid?

The Metrics government has claimed success in relocating millions of Unregistered citizens out west. But the group who escaped their insidious plan knows the truth: the government had their fellow outsiders murdered.

As winter approaches the hidden monastery in the hills, Bristol, Samara, Denver, and Jude realize that the responsibilities of keeping their community safe and plotting their next escape has fallen upon them.

But even when they reach the allusive outside, the political turmoil in their new country makes them question if life there is any better than under the Metrics.

As trust fractures between the four friends and each tries to find a way to function in this strange new world, will they be able to continue working together to find the future they thought they wanted?

For twenty-year-old Li Johnson, a job as a cruise ship waiter was supposed to be a way to get over his father's death and earn enough money to go back to college. Instead, Li is struggling to maintain his sanity while coping with the demands of a sadistic maitre d' and a boatload of entitled rich jerk passengers. Li just wants to keep his head down and survive his job from hell, but when he finds a passenger sunburned to a crisp on the Sunbathing Deck, something about the scene just doesn't add up. Before he knows it, Li is on the track of a murderer and if Li doesn't find the real killer soon, he might just get framed for the crime -- or worse, lose his crappy job.

A brand-new classic in the amateur detective genre, Sunny Side Up is a traditional murder mystery for the 21st century, with a glamorous setting, a gallery of suspects, clues that will keep readers guessing to the last page, and a delightful new hero in Li Johnson, the millennial minimum wage manhunter, who brings sleuthing to the service economy.

Mad science? Obsession? Folly?

In the future, telesensation agent Justin Bremer studies 'time' – especially the effects of journeying through it. 

His assignment, which is funded by the organization ‘Les Charges de L’Affaires,’ is to observe the 'timeline' of a young Victorian scientist who lived approximately 2000 years in the past.

Equipped with an AI neural-interface, Bremer carefully documents the experiments of Dr. Petronella Sage and her archeologist friend Erasmus Savant.

The Doctor, it seems, is curious about the effects of electricity on human flesh and is especially intrigued by the curious and vivid dreams which are induced after she and Savant are accidentally electrocuted.

Each dream-like adventure (which they call a ‘Transmigration’) takes the intrepid duo into the unimaginable lives of persons and places throughout history. 

Justin Bremer dutifully records it all. 

Uncover the secrets of ‘transmigration’ in this steampunk adventure like no other.
