The Pleasure Dial

BRONZE MEDALIST, INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER BOOK AWARDS, 2014

“Sex-positive and upbeat ... hurtles along at the unmissable pace of a Buster Keaton car chase.... [Edwards] knows how to tell a story that excites and entertains and his fiction is never less than a must-read.”
—Ashley Lister, Erotica Readers & Writers Association

“One of the most scrumptiously entertaining novels—erotic or otherwise—I’ve had the pleasure to read in quite some time; an unforgettable, couldn’t-put-it-down, never-wanted-it-to-end reading experience.... Charming, sexy and smart, wry and rollicking, intoxicating and, oh yes, funny as hell.”

“How can you not love an author who focuses first on his heroines’ intelligence and second on their sexual exuberance, with physical appearance taking third place?... This is a clever and very funny book.”

“An extremely fun and incredibly sexy story.... The Pleasure Dial by Jeremy Edwards is an animated and light-hearted story with lushly detailed and highly erotic sex scenes. It also has a fresh and innovative storyline with smart and intelligent characters who unapologetically embrace their sexuality and fully indulge their sexual appetites.”

“Filled with smart, intelligent, vibrant personalities, The Pleasure Dial is a zany mess of plots, schemes, and scams. Like the old-fashioned comedies it does so well to recapture, the crazier things get, the better the story. ”

“So well packaged and put together, all I could do was hang on for the wild ride.... Entertaining, well-written and within my experience, entirely refreshing.”

“Hits all the sweet spots with as many sex scenes as its zany plot twists.... The Pleasure Dial combines sex and silliness for a truly unique take on the historic erotic fiction genre. The sex is hot, the characters are lovable, and readers will surely walk away from this book with a strange new appreciation for mannequins. ”

“Fans of Jeremy Edwards’ erotic tales are sure to enjoy this expertly-paced romp through the glamorous world of 1930’s Hollywood. You'll find Edwards’ signature witty repartee, an unfettered celebration of sensual pleasure, and plenty of clever twists in a story that evokes the screwball comedies of the golden age.”

“I smiled and giggled all the way through this romp of a read.... Fear not however—the humour doesn’t in any way detract from the sensuality of the piece—this tale is toasty!”

“Jeremy is gifted at combining humour and erotic elements in a rollicking good story. No easy task. His latest story, The Pleasure Dial, is a real treat and it instantly zipped me out of my own head, and kept me glued to the fun.”

“It reminded me of the works of P.G. Wodehouse, which are likewise peopled with charming eccentrics....”

“Edwards’ characters are not only sexually independent, passionate, and demanding, they are smart, funny, and endearing.... Edwards lets the sex scenes fit into the story naturally, so that the story, the characters, and the sex are all well developed.... [He] deftly creates a blend of story and sex that is original and unusual. The characters, and the sex scenes, will stay in and on my mind for a long time hereafter.”

THE PLEASURE DIAL
An Erotocomedic Novel of Old-Time Radio

by Jeremy Edwards

published by 1001 Nights Press

The year is 1934, and amiable New York gag writer Artie Plask has taken the West Coast plunge. His first day on staff with a top radio show introduces him to the irresistible Mariel Fenton, a wit among wits who immediately takes an interest in all aspects of Artie’s life—especially his private life. As Artie finds his feet in a world of blustering comedians, pansexual sex goddesses, timid screen legends, exhibitionistic scriptwriters, and self-infatuated geniuses, Mariel leads him on a zany journey up and down the pleasure dial—a giddy romp through Hollywood that’s chock-full of airwaves showdowns, writing-room counterplots, devious impersonations, naked meetings, and a sensuality-drenched assortment of erotic escapades.
