Offbeat Fantasy belongs in your hands.

Refreshing narratives, compelling characters, and fascinating worlds await on the other side.
Thank you for your interest! I'm Michael Leonard and I'm delivering polished stories in new ways. From the author's mind to the reader's eyes.

I'm doing something different. I can't be the only one exhausted by dragons, zombies, and the same nostalgia pining for 'better' times. Come with me. Let's go on a new journey together.

The concept of traditional publishing never sat right with me. It's antiquated. Signing away my creations to anyone in the 21st century sounded like a bad idea.

I'd much rather create as many direct lines between my work and your eyes as possible. Your patronage grants access to wondrous stories. A little more unlocks a full load of extras.

These stories won't always conjure joy, nor will they always bring despair. I've taken up the gauntlet of infusing fantasy with a dose of the human experience. I write about the absurd, the unexpected, and--you guessed it--the offbeat.

First of all, a huge thank you. Every dollar counts, which means your five dollars count a whole lot. You're helping my dream come true even quicker than anticipated.


  • Everything from the other tiers
  • High-quality downloads (.jpg, .mp3, .png) Expand your enjoyment of new worlds with maps, art, and additional audio logs/readings.
  • Process/behind-the-scenes Not everyone wants to know how the sausage is made, and not every sausage-maker wants to give away his secrets. Lucky for you, you'll learn anyway.
  • Your initials on the Wall of Dreammakers, updated with the release of every new cluster/short story

Poetry isn't everyone's bag but, hey, hitting the $100 mark unlocks this for everyone at no additional cost.

It'll allow me to still focus on writing novels and short stories.
