I'm planning to take them to (and sell them at) the Spring Portland Home & Garden Show, February 19-23. They'll be available at the NIWA Book Booth the entire time (until they sell out), but I'll be on hand to sell and sign 3-5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 20 and 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 21.
If you can't make it to the show please order on Amazon (it will be available the first week of February) and catch me sometime if you want it signed. Or you may reserve a copy and I'll sign it for you and mail it ($2 extra). The book is $9.99.
After that you can get copies at your local bookstore. Jacobson's Books & More, in Hillsburo, Oregon) will carry it and other stores can order it in for you (if it's not yet in stock).

Plus the works of at least twenty-five other indie authors will be on hand and many of them will be signing, too.
Admission to the show is $10 for adults and Free for children. BUT you can get a $2 off coupon by clicking here. And remember, parking (usually $7 per vehicle) is FREE on Thursday and after 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Here's the word from the back cover:
In the tradition of humorists Patrick McMannus, Dave Barry, Tim Allen, Bill Cosby, and (the author’s favorite) Bill Bryson, Zschomler takes a look at some of life’s quirks and quandaries through a comedic lens. It’s a look back at a childhood in the 60s, followed by marriage and family in the 80s up until now.
“Inside, you’ll encounter a humorous and bitter-sweet slice of Americana. Always entertaining and encouraging, often auto-biographical, ROCKETMAN, will take the reader on a joy ride of wit and wisdom. This work transcends the humble anthology and becomes a conduit of lessons-learned by a very smart man who’s lived abundantly. It’s a multi-vitamin for the soul that you must dive into right now (unless you plan to set aside time for a warm drink and a fire).”
