High Reaches Nubians

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!

Yarns From Ozark Storytellers is an anthology published by Missouri Author's Circle.

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.

Dwindling Supply

“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.

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 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.

    Karen, got your two new books and enjoyed them very much. I especially liked the ‘pooka’…..I have always enjoyed Harvey so this was special. Pat

    Karen, I got my copy of Yarns of Ozark Storytellers and its GREAT. The one thing I always enjoyed when I lived there was the stories everyone brought in to the Cultural Center & shared with me. I miss that part. Was a great book!
