"The Bad Date Book"

For generations, women have been told that they need a 'good man.' It's a saying that all women have heard thousands of times. But the quest for a perfect mate isn't easy. In fact, women have to kiss a lot of frogs before they find their prince. The Bad Date Book is a compilation of frog stories. Some of the stories are funny and some are just, "Oh my!" To purchase the book visit amazon.com.

Arthur of the book, Kimberly Greenwell grew up in Bardstown, Kentucky. She earned a B.A. from Eastern Kentucky University in Broadcasting and Electronic Media. She worked in the advertising and media industry for many years before co-founding the popular dating event company, "Single Mingle Louisville" www.singleminglelou.com with her sister, Cindi Gilpin.

She has also recently been asked if she would like to have a regular gig in Nashville, TN at the Nashville Palace. Meadow has competed in the Rising Star Song writer's competition at Manny & Merle on Main Street. She is the youngest artist to compete in the entire competition. She won a spot in the semi-finals as the crowd favorite. She is also set to be a part of Country Crossroads at The Horseshoe Casino in April. This is a ticket master event featuring many artists from all over the country and some international artists as well. A couple of weeks ago, she released her first original song to iTunes, but also released her professional music video to go along with it. She has surpassed 4,000 views in less than 2 weeks. Because of her performance in the song writer's competition, she has been asked to perform a full 3 hour show at Manny & Merle, which is an incredibly hard venue to get booked. She performed there on May 1st.
