High Reaches Nubians

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

More Changes Coming

After this week, the Menu will have some changes on it. Because I have books on the site by other authors, it is no longer only my site but that of GoatKeeper’s Press.

The Menu will split the nonfiction and Fiction books offered. The book page list was getting a bit too long. The two anthologies from Missouri Writers, Ink will join the fiction list as soon as I get the sample pages done. A third anthology will be out this fall.

Yet I do enjoy writing the posts for High Reaches and Ozark Hills. Well, all right, Ozark Hills has only been about a plant for some time now. Maybe by next spring I will be caught up with my pictures and can go back to doing more nature posts.

For those interested, I have now completed all seven pictures for almost 100 plants and some to most of the pictures for another 300. That does not include the written pages, only the pictures.

My posts will be under KGK Blogs. The Projects pages will move there too, for now. I do not anticipate doing more projects in the near future as all my so-called extra time is spent on the plant pictures now. I will try to put links from the home page to that week’s posts as well.

Book Page Successes

The buttons for purchase of print, Kindle and ebook versions of eleven GoatKeeper Press books are now on the book pages. As far as I know, they are correctly linked to the places the books are available.


The three PDF versions: Goat Games, Exploring the Ozark Hills and The Pumpkin Project are still available by request only. This is the next project. Print versions are available through Amazon.

Meet the new books:

Edwina by Karen GoatKeeper


For Edwina: Aleta’s parents divorced. Her room has been invaded. She feels lost, replaced and worthless. Then she meets Edwina. Life becomes complicated since she is the only one who can see or hear Edwina. But Edwina is very real and Aleta’s life may depend on that fact.

Running the Roads by Karen GoatKeeper


For Running the Roads: Ridge is 16, road rally crazy and has his first car. And what a car! A gray Ford Fiesta with flames on it. His car is a ticket to adventure and freedom and trouble. It’s a ticket to safety for Ridge and Lisa, if he can drive like a rally driver.

Exploring the Ozark Hills by Karen GoatKeeper

High Reaches laments that spotted doelings are popular while good doelings in plain brown wrappers are ignored.

Ozark Hills is again stalking wildflowers in the Ozarks. Spreading asters are among many now in bloom. How do you tell this one from the others?

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. 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.

The Project Corner has closed for now.

The Pumpkin Project by Karen GoatKeeper

The Outside Project is closed for the year.
