High Reaches Nubians

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

Update Dilemma

I wrote the new posts but didn’t finish two of them. I was typing frantically on my novel, 5,000 to 7,000 words a day. There wasn’t time to do both. NaNo won.

However, I do have all the new posts up now.

My novel isn’t done. It did cross the 50,000 words. I will finish it in the next few days. Then the rewriting begins.

Maybe I will procrastinate. I want to finish the third Hazel Whitmore draft. Then there is that draft about road rally loving Ridge. Choices. Choices.

 Anthology Books

Life Lessons From the Heart

Missouri Writers, Ink has completed two anthology books. I have entries in both.

Life Lessons From the Heart is written as letters. Each is about some incident in our lives that taught us something about life and ourselves

Paws, Claws and Hooves: Footprints on Our Lives is a set of stories about animals, some pets and some not, who have meant something to the writer.

Both will be available at the book signing. Both will be available in the Shop by next week. First I have to work my way through all the paperwork. Sample pages will appear within the next two weeks.

Book Sample Pages!

A pdf of free sample pages from all of my books are available under GKP Books on the menu. This includes both of the new books by Dr. Rintz.


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. I write a short weekly blog on some aspect of writing my books. It is a great place to meet new authors, established authors and people who like to read.

Although I try to pretend every day has about 40 hours, a day really has only 24 hours. So I have no Facebook or Twitter accounts.

I do updates on Wednesday afternoons. Occasionally weather or other difficulty delays this. And I tend to take the last week of the year off.

Ozark Hills will be posting plant pages for some of the many plants I photographed over the summer. First up is Water Willow, Justica americana.

The Project Corner is for those interested in Science.

The Pumpkin Project by Karen GoatKeeper

The Outside Project is closed for the year.

massing coins takes balancing the coin carefully

It takes care to keep the lever perpendicular to the table edge. You have to tap it lightly in the center, not on a corner to move it slightly until it balances.


The Project takes another look at a simple machine: the lever. Can a lever be used to mass a dime?

Goat Galleries

The My Kids pictures are starting up. A few at a time and all the goat pictures will appear.
