Karen GoatKeeper welcomes you to this website, home of GoatKeepers Press.
Summertime is Busy Time
Hot weather can lull you into enjoying the summer and forgetting that summer ends in the fall. Plants don’t forget as they bloom and make seeds.
Goats and other browsers and grazers gorge on the abundant leaves and grass. They grow fat and bask in the sun.
Then summer is gone and the lush vegetation with it. The homesteader better have hay stacked in the barn or livestock will go hungry for the winter.
“Milkweeds, Milkvines and Pipevines of Missouri”
Dr. Richard E. Rintz has just completed this guidebook to the 15 milkweeds, 4 milkvines and 2 pipevines found in Missouri.
The book has general information about these plants. Each of the plants is profiled along with full color pictures to aid in identifying them.
Click on the link above to read a few sample pages from this new guidebook.
Picture Book On the Horizon
“Waiting For Fairies” front cover is done. The book might be. Now I need to find a way to publish it.
“For Love of Goats” Available
“For Love of Goats” sample pages are found here . All the links for ebook, Kindle and print through Amazon are there too.
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.
High Reaches puts hay in the barn.
Ozark Hills sees wildlife hiding in tall grass.
Updates are normally done on Saturday 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 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.
