To commemorate the release of my book, eDating the Old School Way, published by HOPress, Donna Cavanagh, publisher, author and entrepreneur interviewed me on her blog radio show.

Let me back up a bit and introduce eDating the Old School Way to those unfortunate souls who haven’t read my other blog posts. In a nutshell, it’s the only parody of dating advice about online interactions - hilarious, snarky and edgy. But don’t take it from me, here are a few 5-star reviews:

I always say that people who engage in online dating are crazy - now I know they're also hilarious - well at least Maura is. Call it E-dating for Dummies, this book will help you laugh your way through the treacherous world of computer coupling. Just wear some diapers because you will pee yourself and nobody wants to date that kind of girl. Both insightful and insanely funny, this how to hook up book will make surfing for a spouse a scary but much smarter ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get that booty mean love of your life.November 12, 2014
In case you think your soulmate is online, there's eDating the Old School Way. I've always thought this was the scariest of ways to meet someone new. I realize in this day and age people do it all the time, but dang. People can pretend to be whoever they want to be online, and you won't know until it's too late. In the very least, you can bet your behind that they've photoshopped their picture. That's where this book comes in. It gives some hilarious advice on picking up someone online for one night usage or for the forever kind of love. I'm happily married, and very thankful this isn't advice I need, but even still, I enjoyed this book. You'll laugh out loud.

Bravo to Maura Stone for sharing with us the honest and wicked truth about Online dating! This racy, hilarious book balances both sides of the edating scene from a male and female perspective. The author delves into the underbelly of computer matchmaking that is rarely a match made in heaven. There's plenty of sound advice and red flags in the book: "The ultimate worst-case scenario is that he's the next Craigslist murderer, a scammer recently featured on 60 Minutes, or the man who patents Soylent Green with your body parts." Advice like this had me in stitches…..and very grateful to be married! A must-read handbook for any singles out there searching for "true love" via the internet!

Online dating sites claim that somewhere in the bowels of a sterile datacenter sits a supercomputer that can take the answers to such innocuous questions as “What kind of animal would you most like to kill with a slingshot?” and find your soulmate.

What the modern world lacks is solid advice on the phenomenon of “e-dating,” the parallel dimension where people “meet” online and “talk” for weeks and months before they ever meet in person. Although it is the most modern form of matchmaking, one still wishes for the advice of the blunt, wrinkled village busybody. This is Maura Stone’s Bubbameistah.

Here at last is the advice all e-daters lack, with a healthy dose of wit and sense, as well as a pep talk: “There’s no dispute you’re a catch,” is one of the opening lines of “E-Women Are Lunatics” (the part of the series intended for men). Not only are you getting practical advice on how to deal with the thrilling variety of matches out there, but you’re getting it from someone who’s on your side. What man wouldn’t want to hear “Honey, you’re gonna get shtupped!” as he gears up for an online dating session.
E-Dating the Old School Way is chock full of dating advice for men and women looking to navigate the electronic pathways of modern matchmaking. It is a frank look at not just the results of dating, but the reasons for it. These run the spectrum of wanting to find the love of your life to the more realistic “Honey, you’ve got needs.”

This book is hilarious and wise and at times a little wistful as it peels apart the complications of men and women getting together, for whatever it is they get together for. The matchmaker has finally come back to the village, and her name is Bubbameistah.

Now, back to the radio interview. Stacey Roberts, author the L O L novel, Trailer Trash, With a Girl’s Name, came onto the scene as did CF Winn, author of Suki. Similar to edating (which I pointed out), I never spoke to Stacey or CF; we had online relationships only. Which made this interview a lot of fun.
