Merry Xmas and some spanking good last minute stocking fillers

Happy Christmas From Jojo and RH 1Greetings old friends … Betimes the means that makes us strangers, or so said Willy the Shake … As we come up to the festive season I thought that I’d round off the year with a couple of shout-outs, some news and other minutia.

For those of you that are still looking for a few last minute stocking fillers here are a couple of great ideas … My good friends flopsy and Februs over at the Kilahara Library of Spanking Fiction have released seven brand new volumes of Christmas spanking stories … With a combined total of 222,500 words, there is probably something for everybody’s tastes amongst the collection … So I encourage you to cut along sharpish to LSF Publications Xmas Library and stuff your Christmas stockings with some of these last minute goodies.

Another equally enticing stocking-filler is the latest offering from Janus Worldwide who have published Encore Number 10 featuring 85 pages of full sized pictures (some hitherto never previously published) featuring the iconoclastic Nicola Redway and her equally beguiling partner-in-crime Priscilla Waters … the two young ladies appeared in two photo essays (Janus 23 and Janus 46) which are generally considered by genre aficionados as the finest adult schoolgirl spanking sets ever published … Be bold and treat yourself!!!

For the past year the WB2SU site has generally remained open as a repository for the collection of books and cartoons that make up the Woody Back to School Unit Saga … I would like to thank the many visitors who still stop by and rummage around the libraries and galleries … there’s lots to read and lots of original toons to view and its all ABSOLUTELY FREE and even better we keep the site COMMERCIAL FREE as well and that is how it will remain!!!

Before I close and return to a very fine Malbec that I am enjoying I’d just like to play tribute to a couple of sites that just manage to keep tirelessly contributing to the well-being and growth of the entire spanking community … Happy Christmas to Bonnie Burns at My Bottom Smarts , Hermione at Hermione’s Heart , D J Black at the Voice in the Corner , Valdor at The Spank Statement , Brushstrokes at The Spanking Spot , and, of course, finally to Mr Chross, enough said … Long may you all blog.

Of course no WB2SU round-up couldn’t include a shout-out to Our Man from Phuket, the legendary booze-hound and general Scouse Scallywag Dave Ell who I commissioned to draw the 100+ cartoons featured in the galleries and who I would HEARTILY endorse as a collaborator … This is one of my all time favorites and the full story surrounding Deborah’s unfortunate late night caning can be found in Library II in the volume aptly titled  A Bedtime Beating , which as usual is ABSOLUTELY FREE … Please have a very safe and enjoyable festive season … Bottoms Up … RH

Greetings from the Woody Gang on Love Our Lurkers 7

Hi Y’all … Although I now mainly use the blog as a repository for the forty-one full-length volumes of the Woody Back to School unit saga and as a gallery for the hundred plus original Woody Toons that I commissioned from my old mucker and general wine-soak Dave Ell I am still flattered by the considerable traffic the site continues to attract and I can assure you that I very much appreciate your visits.

Like most writers I enjoy receiving feedback about the books and am always more than happy to respond to questions regarding the saga so please don’t hesitate to leave comments and I will respond as soon as possible.

As usual I would like to thank the inimitable Bonny over at the legendary My Bottom Smarts for organizing LoL 7 and a big hi to everybody who is participating in this event.

Finally folks I am closing in on finishing the latest installment of the Woody Back to School Unit, “Volume 42 – The Final Flogging” so watch this space … as usual I am pleased to invite you to stay and have a good old rummage around the Libraries and Galleries … there’s plenty to look at and read and it’s all ABSOLUTELY FREE and even better we keep the site COMMERCIAL FREE as well … so kick-back and enjoy …. Bottoms Up! … RH

Finding a Spanking Holy Grail – Thank You Janus Worldwide

I am thrilled to report the considerable progress being made over at the brand spanking new Janus Worldwide web-site … photographer Roy Tersley, who is lovingly digitizing as many original versions of Janus, Roué, Februs and Blushes as he can get his hands on, has recently become something of a spanko celebrity, being interviewed both by Dave over at The Cherry Red Report and by MarQe (a fellow fan of Miss Nicola Redway btw) over at The Study .

In one of my rare anecdotal posts Soho, London, Circa 1972-1975 I lament over the tragic loss of one of my early collections of spanking magazines, including many early and now very rare editions of Janus … now thanks to Roy’s efforts I am able to repurchase in digital format many of these lost treasures … I was thrilled to find a reprint of Roué 41 … the previous edition had introduced a gal known as Joanna Redstone as an obnoxious Headgirl of the fictitious Frimlingham High school for gals who is caught delivering illegal whops to an unfortunate subordinate, (Joanna became the inspiration for the characters of Yvonne Godfrey and Mitch the Bitch in the Woody Back to School Unit saga) … the magazine promised a full account of Joanna getting her comeuppance in the following edition … I was working overseas when the new edition hit the newsstands and did not return until some months later … as usual upon my return to Blighty I cut along sharpish to Old Compton Street to procure myself a copy … unfortunately they were sold out and over the coming years I often checked in to see if an edition had become available but sadly it was never to be found on the shelves … over the years I have found several images on the net but never the full set … to my delight Roy and his team have delivered this Holy Grail … and for the princely sum of USD 6.28 (GBP 4.00) I was able to download in pdf format … considering the age of the original the quality is about as good as can be expected (the three iconic images featuring the model known as Joanna included in this post were taken directly from the pdf file) … the full magazine runs to sixty pages and features stories, pictures, features and readers letters so all in all pretty good value for money … so thanks a shedload to Roy and his team … keep up the good work … and please find copies of New Janus Number 1 and Janus Volume 8, Number 12 and digitize them!

So my friends while I kickback and enjoy this very old publication with a very well-spiced Bloody Mary please feel free to hang around at Woodys and have a good old rummage about … there are thirty-nine full volumes of the Woody Back to School Unit saga available for download in Library I and numerous other Woody related writings and ramblings in Library II … the galleries contain over a hundred completely original toons that I have commissioned over the last eighteen months … and you know what? … the best thing about this? … Everything at Woodys is ABSOLUTELY FREE and COMMERCIAL FREE … Bottoms Up! … RH

A Woody Update … Message from Mr Humphries

Over the past few weeks I have received numerous emails enquiring after the state of my health and also, due to my recent lack of activity, whether I am closing the doors to the Woody Back to School Unit … the answer to the former is that touchwood I seem to have made a remarkable recovery from my unfortunate health misadventure, largely due to successfully giving up smoking (yay me) … and thank you all so much for your kind thoughts.

The answer to the latter question is slightly more complex … the simple answer is no, the WB2SU site will continue to remain open and will be updated whenever appropriate and new material is available … I have published thirty-nine full length installments of the Woody Back to School Unit saga and am slowly but inexorably reaching the conclusion of this account of the current phase of the lives of the many characters that inhabit the correctional center for Extreme Ladettes … my problem is that as a spanking writer my style has never been simply “Get over my knee”, “Down with the bumbags”, ‘Whap! Whop! Whap!’, End of Story! … Although spanking and corporal punishment is indubitably the central theme of the saga I have always tried to involve my characters in adventures (and misadventures) and to elaborate on the back-stories of what led them to be sentenced to spend seven years at this austere government correctional institution without even the vaguest possibility of parole … However, as I near the conclusion of the tale I find it increasingly challenging to avoid becoming repetitive and not recounting old back-stories that can be found elsewhere in the saga … That being said, the publication of the most recent volume ‘Volume 39 – Big Gals Don’t Cry’ was included in the highly influential Spankings of the Week listings published by the inimitable Mr Chross which attracted a host of brand new readers … I notice from the analytical data that WordPress provides me a whole slew of new guests have elected to go back and start at ‘Volume 1 – Whops and Clobber’, and slowly work their way through the complete saga, which, of course, I think is quite wonderful … I have also noticed this phenomenon over at the quite excellent Kilahara Library of Spanking Fiction where my saga has been show-cased for some time and continuously finds new readers and fans of the Woody Gals … so welcome to all of you and I hope that you find the stories and characters engaging and entertaining and continue to read.

Equally with the Woody Toons that I have commissioned and developed in collaboration with Our Man in Phuket, the legendary wine-soak Dave Ell , they started off as an experiment, I thought I’d try out a couple but over a nearly two year period I ended up purchasing over a hundred toons … again they are mostly based upon extracts from the saga that I felt were suitable for the cartoon genre … as I progress towards the conclusion of the story I can assure you that I will continue to commission Dave for new works when there is a good story to tell.

So, in the meantime, while I continue to produce new and original writing and toons please feel free to hang around at Woodys and have a good old rummage about … there are thirty-nine full volumes of the Woody Back to School Unit saga available for download in Library I and numerous other Woody related writings and ramblings in Library II … the galleries contain over a hundred completely original toons that I have commissioned from Dave … and you know what? … the best thing about this? … Everything at Woodys is ABSOLUTELY FREE and COMMERCIAL FREE … Bottoms Up! … RH

Welcome Back to an Old Friend

A short time ago international spanko’s received the devastating news that fiscal considerations had forced the closure of the legendary Old Compton Street HQ of Janus magazine … as I have mentioned in several earlier posts ( Early Awakenings and Soho, London, Circa 1972-1975 ) Janus played a significant role in RH’s spanko development … it show-cased some great writing by authors such as Alex Birch (RIP) and R.T. Mason, illustration’s by Lynn Paula Russell and George Jackson Churchward, was briefly edited by the legendary George Harrison Marks, and featured some of my all-time favorite photo shoots including ‘Teachers Pets’, ‘Nicola and Priscilla – the Epilogue’, ‘Punishing Penelope’, ‘Burning Injustice’ and ‘A Lesson for Lindy’, to name but a few … heady days!

Now the good news … Janus is reopening its doors on-line and is currently collecting together some of the great older editions of the magazine to digitize and make available for download, seeking out some of their former models to interview, maybe even converting some of those old super-8 movies to new mediums … to celebrate their opening at Janus Worldwide they commissioned my Woody collaborator Dave Ell to draw a couple of toons for them which can be found on their welcome page , go take a gander and of course notice that Dave included a couple of Woody characters in the toons … the site is very much a work under construction but hopefully it will be up and running and fully functional in the near future … good luck and welcome back to Janus.

My apologies to our regular guests for the lack of recent updates but I have diligently been slogging away at completing Volume 39 of the Woody Back to School Unit saga, which has the loose working title of ‘Holy Smoking Bumbags’ … hopefully I will have the new book completed and ready for release shortly … unfortunately time is a trade-off … write the books or update the blog? … currently book writing wins out … however, I did take the time to draft a briefing for a brand spanking new Woody toon so that will be available this coming week … in the meantime why don’t you take the time and have a good old rummage about in the libraries and galleries, there’s plenty to read and see and best of all … it’s all ABSOLUTELY FREE and even better it’s Commercial Free … it’s Sunday so pour yourself a mimosa or a Bloody Mary and kick-back … Enjoy … Bottoms Up! … RH

Dave Ell – A Legend in his Own Lunchtime – Plus a New Sammy Toon

I first got in contact with the illustrator Dave Ell in September of 2009 after seeing the work he had performed for the now retired model and blogger, Emma Bishop … I was impressed and a quick Google revealed that he had produced a fairly extensive portfolio of spanking related toons including his own Sammy Simpkins series … I also learned that he was an artist for hire.

Over the years I had developed a pretty strong mental image of the characters from the Woody Back to School Unit saga and had often wished that my artistic tendencies extended to drawing but sadly those particular talents are right up there with my singing, which is abysmal … so I contacted Dave.

He responded quickly with his schedule of rates which I thought were quite reasonable … what was far more alarming was the information that he was a Scouser living in Phuket in Thailand … being a natural born Londoner this threw up two enormous red flags for me … firstly it is well known that dealing with Scouser’s can be a very dodgy proposition … I had personal experience when, some years ago (1971 to be exact … shows my age), I was leaving Wembley Stadium after the Arsenal versus Liverpool FA Cup final when I was surrounded by a group of disgruntled Scousers, Liverpool had lost 2-1 after extra-time … due to a recent piece of financial good fortune I had been able to acquire a pair of crepe soled shoes with ox-blood leather uppers and massive clown toes … these shoes were the bomb … anyway the lead Scouser informed me that he liked my shoes and after duly thanking him I attempted to hurry on my way … they rather rudely stopped me … “No,” said the leading Scouser, “you don’t understand I REALLY like your shoes!” … I have had an inherent distrust of Scouser’s ever since … the second alarm bell was his choice of residence … generally Scouser’s don’t travel well and the only time they like to be more than a mile from Anfield is when they have been forced to have it on their toes from Plod for dodgy dealings.

Nonetheless, I put these concerns to one side (even sending him an advance payment) and sat down and drafted out my first ever cartoon briefing … the first toon was not a story per se but an attempt to establish some of the central characters and set a bit of context … despite my reservations Dave delivered promptly and had followed the script … I decided to risk another punt and sent him second briefing … this time with a story-line … once again he delivered and we’ve been at it ever since.

The complete collection of our toons to date are hanging in Gallery I and some extracts and various odds and sods hang in Gallery II.

I think that it’s pretty obvious which are the earlier works when I was still learning how to write briefs (Rule Number One – limit the dialogue! It’s a toon stoopid!) and Dave was still learning the characters … once we both got confident in our own role in the relationship and I began to trust that he wasn’t about to steal my shoes it really began to come together and I think we are both pretty proud of the body of work and hopefully he has enjoyed the experience of collaborating with me as much as I have with him.

I am about to send Dave my latest briefing so we should have a new Woody toon out this week but in the meantime here is Dave’s latest Sammy toon … it’s Saturday so join me for Bloody Mary’s for brunch and have a good old rummage around in the libraries and galleries, there’s plenty to read and see and best of all … it’s ABSOLUTELY FREE and even better its all Commercial Free … Enjoy …. Bottoms Up! … RH

Congratulations to Two Great Bloggers – Miss Pink and Rayne

Stuck in the Granite City on a rather bleak day I decided to opt out of hemorrhaging two hundred and seventy quid to stand on the first tee on a links golf course and potentially get blown into the North Sea in conditions that the understated weather-man has described as blustery … I chose instead to remain in bed and surf the net.

Due to my ridiculous travel schedule I sometimes (read often) fall behind in reciprocating backfeeds to people who are kind enough to add me to their blogroll’s … hopefully today I have caught up … one of the blog’s that I was behind on adding is The Pink Report … although our spanking predilections might be somewhat different I find Miss Pink’s observations to be charming, witty and hilarious.

And speaking of hilarious, if you only have a short time on your hands I would strongly advise that you use it to read this wonderful blog posted by Rayne, over at Mischief Managed titled ‘Busted’ … I am sure that her experience with her Mother was somewhat heart-stopping but she appears to have handled it with considerable aplomb and as usual uses her vivacious, literate and articulate voice to the fore to recount this tale … so well done Rayne … years ago I had a rather similar experience that ended rather less well.

I related this unfortunate tale in a rare biographical post Soho, London, Circa 1972 – 1975, but in short my visiting Grandmother came upon my large stash of spanking mags, that would doubtless now be worth gazillions … Mother ceremoniously burned them on the garden fire … a sorry experience I can assure you … oh well … but have to run … hang about and enjoy the libraries and galleries, lots to see and read and its all absolutely FREE and Commercial Free … Bottoms Up! … RH
