Last night we got tired of waiting for warmer weather and lit our first fire of this winter season. It was nice to be warm again as the house had settled into the mid 60’s.

Warmer weather is supposed to show up in a couple of days. The tomatoes, okra and peppers hope so.

October is just around the corner. This is goat breeding season. Both the does and Augustus have been agitating.

November is also coming up fast with Novel Writing Month. I’ve been working on The Carduan Chronicles for several times now and see the drafts close to completion.

That leaves me searching for another project. I’m thinking I will work on “The Mounzz of Autumn. This is another science fiction but for younger (middle grade) readers.

I hear 8 out of 10 deaths from Covid in the U.S. were people over 65. This is my category and I will continue to stay home most of the time. Please bear with my slowness due to curtailed internet time.

Buying Books From My Website

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.

Visit me at: http://www.pinterest.com/karengoatkeeper. I try to keep up with boards on nature, my books, country living, gardening, my cats and my goats. 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. My reading goal this year is 70 books. I’m doing a lot of reading while staying at home. Have you read anything interesting lately?

New goat pictures are in the gallery. Augustus did his best to look awful. This season’s kids are now only pictures.

    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!

    Thank you for your wonderfully detailed webpage on Wood Sage! I think I was able to successfully identify this volunteer growing in my native garden. We’ll see once it flowers 🙂

    Karen, your books are do delightful, keep up the good work. I’m looking for to getting the printed copy of “FOR THE LOVE OF GOATS”. Please let me know when it is available (Amazon). I miss seeing & talking with you my friend! Pat

    Karen,I LOVED IT!!!! It was whimsical, funny and so much fun to read. The play on words was awesome & you did a great job on the art work & color! I don’t believe anyone could capture the goats with any photography or drawings like you have, it has to be done by someone who feels & can express thru there experience and love. Great job, my friend!
