High Reaches Nubians

Karen GoatKeeper welcomes you to this website, home of GoatKeepers Press.

Camp NaNo Time

April is a busy time at High Reaches. The fluctuating weather leaves the chicks too cold at times and too hot at others. So far they are surviving and growing.

One doe is still playing the ‘any time’ game. The other eleven kids are growing fast.

The garden is being planted. Peas are up. Spinach and turnip greens are table ready. Lettuce and cabbage are planted.

And Camp NaNo is in full swing urging me to complete the draft for Mistaken Promises, third of the Hazel Whitmore series. The first half of the draft has been written and edited for a couple of years. Compared to that, this rough draft is so sloppy I sometimes despair of ever getting the whole book done.

Then, again, I think that about every book as I get close to the end of the rough draft.

Meet the United States Milkweeds

Milkweeds come the size of a fist to eight feet tall. Their leaves can be narrow blades or wide ruffled affairs. Their flowers can be white, green, yellow, pink, deep red, orange, even two toned. Meet all of them in this three volume set called Asclepias by Richard Edward Rintz.

The sample pages are now available under Buy Nonfiction along with purchase information or click the above link.

Purchasing Books

Buying anything on line can be risky. Security is a big issue. I am not knowledgeable enough to provide this. So, any book purchase from my site is handled by other secure sites: Amazon, Kindle or Smashwords.

Check out the book pages, read the sample pages. Clicking on the Buy Buttons will take you to the appropriate place to purchase the book.

That leaves the pdf versions for my three nonfiction books: Exploring the Ozark Hills; Goat Games; and The Pumpkin Project. These are $2.99 each. Anyone wanting a copy of these needs to email me from the contact page. We can make arrangements through PayPal.
