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

Our Goal is to 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

What do you get as a Tales Fantastic Patron?


Chapter 1/ $1
Special access to the patron only feed where I will send you letters, and video journal posts all about what's happening behind the scenes.

You'll also get to read the stories five days before the rest of the world and be entered to win in patron only giveaways. Sometimes you'll also receive special patron only gifts in the mail.

Chapter 2/ $5
You'll keep all your gifts and goodies from Chapter 1 plus see more process posts and behind the scenes content. This tier also includes ebook downloads of each story and wallpaper downloads for your devices. Other bonus downloads could include process worksheets and special ebooks. 

Chapter 3/ $12

This chapter gives you access to an in-depth video tutorial showing how I paint and draw my illustrations in real time. You'll get a new one with each new story.

Chapter 4/ $25 (USA) $30 (International)
In this chapter exciting things come in your mailbox. You'll get an 8.5x11 print for each new story plus a printed book with the story inside. If you'd like a different print no problem, just send me a message to request it by the last day of the month.

Also, join me for a monthly critique session. I'll give you an honest critique of an illustration, painting or 500 words of a story. Watch for posts with details on how to submit and when I'll hold the sessions.

And, you get your name added at the end of each story as a thank you for being a top patron.


You can support Tales Fantastic for as long as you wish and cancel at any time. You can set a monthly max, so you never go over your budget. You control it all. It's easy to sign up and easy to cancel.
