Karen GoatKeeper welcomes you to this website, home of GoatKeepers Press.
Augustus and the Kids
Goat kids love to play. They were so busy playing they forgot to follow the herd out. Augustus was delighted to have playmates. The kids weren’t so sure.
The doe kids are spoken for. The bucks are available. Several of them are spotted. Email me, if you are interested. Some more pictures are in the My Kids gallery. These kids are camera shy.
Busy Times Are Here
Cool spring has just become warm summer. Gardening is in full swing as tomatoes and peppers are going into the garden. The cabbage is unhappy with the heat.
Talking to a friend about keeping containers watered, a constant challenge, an idea from “Lasagna Gardening” is easily adapted. Get 2 liter soda bottles or gallon milk jugs, depending on the size of the container, poke a small hole in the bottom, sink it into the container and keep it filled. And add mulch on top.
Upcoming Book Signing
Come by the Waynesville Library on Saturday, June 1, from 10 to noon. Get a signed copy of any of my books and the anthology Yarns From Ozark Storytellers. Waynesville, MO, is near Fort Leonard Wood.
“Yarns of Ozark Storytellers” Sample Pages Are Available!
My writer’s group, Missouri Author’s Circle, published this anthology. This is filled with both fiction and nonfiction tales that will make you wonder, might make you shiver, maybe make you keep the lights on at night. I have three stories in the anthology.
“My Ozark Home” is finally in print, in limited numbers as printing such books is expensive. They are available through Amazon. Go to the “My Ozark Home” book page to see a sample of the book and purchase your copy.
“My Ozark Home” pdf is available
I have put the pdf on Smashwords. It is available for $2.99. The book is only available as a pdf because, out of 110 pages, 100 of them include photographs.
Sample pages are available.
The print version is available on Amazon for $29.99.
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 secure 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.
High Reaches is gardening in layers.
Ozark Hills tries out a new edible mushroom.
Updates are normally done on Wednesday afternoons. This is subject to weather or disaster delays.
Find Me On:
Visit me at: http://www.pinterest.com/karengoatkeeper. I try to keep up with nine boards on nature, my books, country living, gardening, my cats, my goats and the science projects. Take care or you may spend hours browsing as Pinterest is a very interesting place to visit.
Visit me at: Goodreads. It is a great place to meet new authors, established authors and people who like to read.
New goat pictures are in the gallery. Augustus did his best to look awful. This season’s kid pictures are started too.
