Tales Fantastic is a cozy place created for all who love to escape into beautiful fairy tale worlds, even if only for a moment.

And someday, we'll take each story and create an illustrated storybook you can hold in your hands and funded with Kickstarter. 

Let me introduce myself.

See how a Tales Fantastic Story is Made: Right Click the image and view it in a new tab.


Being an artist, I know how creative minds like ours work. You want more than just a story you want to see the story's creation.




You also want to get to know the creator... Like maybe in a short vlog perhaps? 

Here's an example of a patron only vlog post.


What do patrons have to say?

“I’ve always loved micro-stories - narrative vignettes accompanied by intricate images.  The variety of stories in Tales Fantastic is also a pleasant plus.”  –Stephen Bradford   www.braddyverse.com  

“It’s so fun to support an artist for whom I feel passionate about their work. I feel as though I get to be apart of something that’s almost like a juicy secret. It’s a secret that’s going to get out, but I get to be one of the first.”  –Jennifer Eichelberger   www.jeneart.blogspot.com  


 “I like the Tales Fantastic Stories because they are fun fantasy stories and fairy tales told in small bite sized chunks. I can enjoy reading the stories in a couple of minutes and not be overwhelmed by having to read a whole novel. I also love the illustrations that go along with each story. Each illustration adds a whole new level of excitement to the stories.”  –Shawna J.C. Tenney   www.shawnajctenney.com
