Trying to clean up this blog. Sorry for the simpleÂ ‘theme’ but I’m in the process ofÂ revamping the site for the upcoming Bent SteepleÂ release this Halloween. (more about the release below…)
In the meantime I’m releasing a new novel The Variant Effect: Skin Eaters in FREE installments. You can get the first threeÂ at skineaters.com. You can also read the first installment online (again for FREE) where it’s in great company in the Astounding Adventures Magazine Issue 7. You can order the actual magazine at Amazon. Special thanks to editorÂ Katherine Tomlinson for getting me involved with Issue 7.
We’re also getting primed for the Bent Steeple launch on Halloween. Take the link to visit and check out the cover and sample chapters. While you’re there enter the Bent Steeple eBook Reader contest. If you haven’t guessed, the winner gets a free Sony eBook Reader. Oh, it’s free to enter and there are second and third prizes.
We’re doing a general revamp on the whole site in preparation for Bent Steeple’s release. One of those things will be a BLOG revamp. I need something sleek and stylish. ActuallyÂ mightÂ useÂ Twitter and Facebook instead.
Feel free to look around the web site. There’s a ton of stuff: samples, animations and stories.
Contact us here if you’ve got questions or suggestions about the downloads.
All right. I’ll admit it. I’m just not taking to this blogging thing. I apologize for the lax standards in blogging that I’m exhibiting over here; but I’m just too busy writing books.
Isn’t that really what you want to hear? That I’m currently up to ‘here’Â in the polishing draft of Bent Steeple. It’s a huge book, biggest yet and a departure from my World of Change stories. Or that Bent Steeple is sure to appeal to a wider audience who have a taste for horror and blood.
You don’t really want to know that I had my usual cheese on toast with coffee at seven o’clock this morning, after my daily early editing session. You couldn’t possibly care.
I’m assuming that you’d rather skip over that and instead have me make occasional announcements like:
Bent SteepleÂ will be available in July of 2009.
and finally that:
I hate to sound repetitive, but I also hate to sound boring. I barely care that I had cheese on toast this morning, or that the hot water tap in my vertically challenged new bathroom has a habit of drooling.
Who wants to know that? I forget about it the moment I walk out the door. That’s probably why it’s been leaking for a month.
Happy New Year Everyone! Thanks again for all your support in 2008.
Bent SteepleÂ will be available in July of 2009.
G. Wells Taylor is gearing up for the new year. Many thanks to readers who purchased copies of The Forsaken. Feel free to pop in and tell him what you think.
Bent Steeple is almost finished and will be sent off to readers by the end of January.
Website upgrades and add on’s are in the works. Multi-format eBooks are on the way.

TORONTO, ONTARIO – (Oct. 29/08) The Forsaken by horror author G. Wells Taylor launches at midnight October 30, 2008 at gwellstaylor.com and wildclown.com. To celebrate the release of The Apocalypse Trilogy: Book Two, Taylor will extend FREE E-book downloads of popular Book One in the series: When Graveyards Yawn. (Click Title to download yours!)
Over 5,000 readers have downloaded copies already!
When Graveyards Yawn begins when a dead lawyer hires Detective Wildclown to find his killer. The detective is soon entangled in a battle for control of a secret that offers hope or doom for humanity. Welcome to the World of Change. People stopped aging, the dead rose from their graves, it started raining and it’s been raining ever since.
The long-anticipated sequel, The Forsaken returns us to the World of Change when a Demon hires an assassin to kill an Angel from a rival gang. It’s not the first time the hit man’s had an employer from Hell, so he checks the fine print before setting bloody quill to parchment. Just one stipulation: he’ll have to make it quick if he wants to avoid the End of the World.
Powerful forces battle for mastery over the coming darkness as The Apocalypse Trilogy continues in this epic series by the creator of the Detective Wildclown case files and the World of Change.

Again, I have to apologize forÂ more slow blogging. Struggling toÂ fit it into my writing schedule. Ridiculous delays really.Â But it isn’t quite the same lapse as last time. Things are getting a little better.
THE FORSAKEN,Â Apocalypse Trilogy: BookÂ Two,Â is with the continuity editor and is due back any day. The new and updated cover is ready to go. We’re counting down to a Halloween Launch!
Good GOD! This is bad. I apologize forÂ the grotesquely overdue postsÂ but I’ve been burning the midnight oil getting THE FORSAKENÂ ready for release. The whole book’s been overhauled and updated. I’m pleased to say it’s in the final polish andÂ will be available Halloween.
The Site will be showing a lot more activity in the coming days so stay tuned.
