The Pleasure Dial, and other adventures


The big news in Jeremyland is that I have another erotocomedic novel coming out soon! The Pleasure Dial: An Erotocomedic Novel of Old-Time Radio will be published in November by OC Press, a new e-book enterprise that's being launched by the lovely people behind (and in front of) the Oysters & Chocolate Erotic website!

Here's a summary:
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.
Meanwhile, other terrific things have been happening for me. Witty literary maven Matt "Wordpill" Ellis gave Rock My Socks Off a write-up that thrilled and delighted me the way praise from someone who thoroughly gets what one is trying to do always thrills and delights. Harley Moore at the fabulous new 4-Letter Words blog featured an RMSO excerpt and my RMSO theme song. And the Oh Get A Grip! bloggers permitted me to take the floor with my Wodehouse imitation.

Big thanks to all concerned!

Thanks, JE!

I couldn't resist adding a little corny dialogue to the radio photo—it really seemed to be asking for it. I promise the dialogue in the actual book is better than that. : )

That is good news in Jeremy Fan Land too! Humor & sex--two great things that go great together! I can't wait.
