High Reaches Nubians

Welcome to GoatKeepers Press.

Writing Again! Sort of.

My new computer set up is in operation. The set up is great. I love it.

Moving from Word 2007 to Word 2021 is not great. I finally found the font set up. And how to save things.

There is a new High Reaches post today. Topics are hard to decide on over the winter.

Writing has its ups and downs for now. Ozark Hills may start looking at some of the plants I’m working with. A novel is now in rewrite.

Amazon is again being frustrating. I have been unable to list “Asclepias” on my seller account or anything else for a couple of months now. Computer algorithms are infuriating.

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, book purchases from my site are 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.

Asclepias: A Study of the Living Plants of the United States” (due to the size of the sample pages, they load slowly) remains available only through the website. After two months of trying to get past the unthinking, rule bound machine algorithm so I can list the book on Amazon, I’m giving up. Several copies have sold through the website and I am glad to make payment arrangements and mail copies out.

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 begins a series on homesteading.

    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!
