When author Kevin Zdrill faced the angst of turning 40, he found that he was in good company. Many of his friends not only faced the big 4-0, but they faced the terrors of the dating scene as well. Zdrill felt there was a story there that needed to be told. His new book, “No Kiss Good-Night” (published by iUniverse), follows one man on the edge of 40 as he navigates the treacherous and often hilarious world of matchmaking in his moving attempt to find his soulmate.

“More men and women than ever before are hitting their 40s having never been married,” says Zdrill. “This book speaks to the struggles and barriers they face trying to find their significant other in a hilarious manner through a dating service and the potpourri of baggage that comes with it.”

Thirty-nine-year-old Gus Adams is on a mission. After a 10-year dating slump, Gus vows to find the love of his life before he turns 40. Gus enrolls in a local dating service to help him find the perfect mate. What follows is a handful of bizarre and hilarious dates that will have readers laughing and cheering Gus on. Just when he thinks he’s found someone to settle down with, Gus’s past threatens to ruin his future.

Featuring a cast of colorful characters and their dating escapades, “No Kiss Good-Night” relates to any reader who has braved the dating scene and lived to tell the tale. Zdrill masterfully renders the city of Winnipeg, capturing the scenery and local residents.

“Readers will identify with the scenarios the main character stumbles upon during his dating experiences,” writes Zdrill. “The characters are engaging that prompt readers to point out to people they know within their own lives.”
