High Reaches Nubians

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

Catching Up?

All my November posts are up to date, at least until next week. One problem with November is trying to keep up with my posts as well as writing a novel for NaNo.

Another problem with winter in general is finding subject items to write about. It isn’t that winter chores don’t exist. They definitely do. but they are routine, dirty and boring.

“For Love of Goats” is being printed next week. Copies will be available by Thanksgiving. The ebook version should be available that week as well.

“For Love of Goats” Sample Pages

Sample pages of “For Love of Goats” are posted. The book will be available in mid November.

For Love of Goats” sample pages are found here .

Both the book “For Love of Goats” and the cover are done. Since I am an indie author, I am now negotiating my way through the hoops to get the book printed.

The ebook formats are mostly done. As soon as the print version is completed, I will negotiate my way through those, one for Smashwords, the other for Kindle.

Looking For a Goat Novel?

front cover for the novel Capri Capers

Begun as a fun romp for NaNo (National Novel Writing Month), Capri Capers stayed a fun romp of a book.

I’d been watching some old Rin Tin Tin movie serials and like melodramas. The two melded in this book.

Every chapter ends in a crisis of some kind. Harriet is the heroine. Arthur is the hero. There are dastardly villains and not so dastardly villains. And there is Capri.

You can read sample pages from “Capri Capers” and purchase it in print or as an ebook or from Kindle.

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.

Ozark Hills may be admiring fall, but winter temperatures have me wishing for spring.

Find Me On:


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 over 40 and working on three more. 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, 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 🙂
