The Pragmatist’s Guide to Governance by Simone Collins & Malcolm Collins

Any group of people expected to work synergistically needs a system that structures their interactions. That system is “governance.” This book takes a first principles approach to exploring the ways governance structures affect the humans living under them (and vice versa), with a special focus on how human psychology interacts with the structures that facilitate our interaction with other people. Originally written as a thought experiment in forming a family office that won’t cause crisis, “The Pragmatist’s Guide to Governance” explores governing structures ranging from states to religions, online forums, middle school cliques, and family units.




What People are Saying: “A fascinating mashup of biology, neuroscience, culture, religion, and government, the book gets us to think critically about hierarchies, norms, and rituals that have evolved alongside of our physical evolution.” – KC_1225, B&N Reviewer


The Ring that Caesar Wore by Ashley Gardner

Leonidas is coerced into a dice game with a stranger at his local popina–who turns out to not be such a stranger after all. Leonidas has no wish to be caught up in trouble–he’s about to begin working as a builder, his ticket out of his life as a gladiator and bodyguard. But then stumbles across a valuable ring buried in the mud, a ring that has the potential to change the destiny of Rome. Nero commands Leonidas and Cassia to uncover everything about this ring. They are not allowed to fail. The ring proves to be only the tip of the troubles Leonidas uncovers, with connections from the Emporium to the Esquiline, and danger that visits Leonidas and Cassia very close to home.

What People are Saying: A fun historical fiction mystery that draws you in from page one. Ancient Rome comes alive through a tale of intrigue, loyalty, and love.

Beer and Loathing by Ellie Alexander

It’s ski week in the village of Leavenworth, Washington. Sloan Krause and her brewing partner Garrett Strong are pouring pints and serving up slices of peanut butter chocolate pretzel bars. The mid-winter has everyone buzzing, especially Garrett. His family is arriving for a long overdue visit and he can’t wait to show them around, spend afternoons skiing, and curling up in front of a crackling fire. But the cozy vibe takes a dark turn when a young doctor has a fatal fall from the ski lift. It turns out, Hazel Anders had insider information on medical research that could be worth killing for. Now barstool sleuth Sloan is on the case and using her nose for hops to sniff out the murder.

What People are Saying: A fun plot, good characters, and an atmospheric setting you wish you could visit in real life!
