Welcome to GoatKeepers Press.
Heat and Humidity
Air conditioning hasn’t interested us. Lately, it has an appeal. It’s the humidity.
Unfortunately the chickens and goats are suffering too. The garden can get watered and recover.
This week the posts on the new site are on spotting a muskrat (Latest News) and reading about earthquakes in “On Shaky Ground”. (Writing News).
The summer crunch is going strong. Too long a list. Too little time.
I plan to shut down the comments on this site as the spammers are getting to be more than annoying.
Now is when I will miss having the Goat Galleries as I start putting my kids up for sale. The first two are a lovely set of buck kids available in June. One is brown with a possible tan spot on his back. The other is polled and sold. Next up are my three doe kids and another buck.
Usually I refer people to the Goat Gallery for pictures of the parents. But the Galleries aren’t on the new site. And the ones here haven’t been updated for some time. I am down to 14 adults now as my herd continues to dwindle.
I have operated this site for over ten years and have lots of posts saved from High Reaches, Ozark Hills and the science Projects. If you have any one you would like a copy of, get in touch with me. I can send a pdf by email.
Some of the posts seem to be popular as for the PVC gates. The PVC gates went up on the new site last week. Perhaps I will redo making cheese soon. I will eventually redo these posts and put them on the new site.
Thank you to everyone who has made this site a place to visit. Eventually this site address will link directly to the new site and this one will vanish.
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 greets the first spring kids.
Ozark Hills starts bark and winter bud pictures of various trees before the buds open into leaves.
My Writing begins rewriting the new novel draft.
Updates are normally done on Friday 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. Find out what I’m reading now and check out reviews for books I’ve read. Have you read anything interesting lately?
Fall pictures are up in the My Goats gallery. The My Kids gallery remains until spring.
Glad You Stopped By
