-- Award-winning comedy author, Maura Stone, was inducted in the National Bathroom Readers’ Hall of Fame to commemorate National Bathroom Reading Month. “We didn’t want to flush Five-Star FLEECING
down the drain with the other crap," stated the foundation’s director, Jeffrey Spritz. “Instead, we stayed on the throne for days until we finished!”
Ms. Stone’s first novel, Five-Star FLEECING
, won several awards, notably the 2011 National Indie Excellence Award for Comedy along with critical acclaim including the Midwest Book Review’s highly recommended endorsement. Ms. Stone gushed, “I’m thrilled Five-Star’s so well regarded. Can they say the same for my edating ebook comedy series?”
During April 2012, Ms. Stone launched a five-part ebook comedy series, eDating Advice from the Bubbameistah
, a LOL ROFL parody of edating advice. The first ebook, Men, eDating and Mast*****ion
was originally yanked off the virtual bookshelves because Ms. Stone used the word, “mast*****ion,”
in its entirety. “I learned a lesson from that,” said Ms. Stone, “I should’ve named it: _*!#%&^(^^#*)&.” Men, eDating and Mast*****ion
has become the darling of the internet and an underground hit. “Since its release, the proportion of my online stalkers has grown exponentially,”
said Ms. Stone.
Ms. Stone’s releasing the second ebook of the series, eWomen are Lunatics
this June through smashwords.com. eWomen are Lunatics
are for men what Men, eDating and Mast*****ion
is for women although both sexes can read and enjoy both spoofs. “Sadly, very few people will get the literary allusions,” said Ms. Stone, “although they’ll tear a gut out laughing. Or mast*****ing.”
During the ceremony held in the women’s street-level bathroom at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City, Ms. Stone was handed an aluminum statue of Rodin’s Thinker perched on a toilet, book on his lap. “I’ll treasure it always,” she stated to the director, two bathroom attendants and one tourist stuck in a stall.
