New Feature: While Michael is writing The Whispers, you can add one vote to your choice.

You'll also get enhanced access to the Tellest World Anvil.  Now, on all released maps, you'll see hidden artifact layers that will only be accessible to Seer-level patrons and higher!

About Tellest

Hi there!  My name is Michael DeAngelo.  I am the proud creator of Tellest, a persistent fantasy brand and world that is continuing to grow every year.  I started it over fifteen years ago, and it's expanding and evolving in beautiful new ways every day.

Tellest is the kind of place where your imagination goes to play.  It's a fantasy world that is open to elements of greek mythology, steampunk, and pirates.  Oh, and there's medieval superheroes.

Check out a selection of the books that have released (or are coming very soon):


Every week, we update Tellest with a whole bunch of content.  But I'd like to fill up more of my time with it, if possible.  On top of that, it would be wonderful to have another platform to reach interested fans.  Communication is paramount for Tellest to grow, and I'd be quite happy if you joined me on that journey!

These are just a few of the items that we've released on our site in the past:



If you're interested, you can see all of the art we've been so privileged to receive at our gallery on the site.

The real meat and potatoes of Tellest is the writing, which without would not be able to inspire these awesome art pieces.  You can start your adventure for free at Amazon, with the novella, Mageborn. Signing up for the Tellest newsletter will get you even more goodies and deals as well.  We also have fourteen other published books, with three more coming before the end of 2019.

The artists that we are currently working with have a great pace, but there may be a time in the future where we catch up to them regarding our weekly content.  Your pledges would help to make sure we always have a wide assortment of art to choose from when updating Tellest.com - we'd also use any additional pledges to try and hire other writers to help grow the world beyond its borders.

If you're interested in supporting Tellest and the many people who help it grow every year, please consider pledging at the $1 level or higher.  Your support allows us to build our team, give you better, more frequent content, and be the best we can be!

Starting in June 2019, we introduced a new interactive project on the Tellest website called The Whispers.  In The Whispers, readers are given the opportunity to help a young man determine his fate.  Newsletter subscribers are given a vote that strengthens every time they make a choice for Declan.

Here on Patreon, your choice carries additional weight.  Every tier gives you more voting power, so if you are pledging at the $5 tier, your vote is counted five times, in addition to whatever your newsletter vote is!  On the 15th of every month, I'll be posting the link to the latest chapter of The Whispers, along with the choices that you can make.  All you have to do is comment on the post, and your vote will be counted!

Note: The Whispers is temporarily paused while Michael finishes work on the Quantum Quest novelization, Tales of Tellest: Volume 2 short story collection, and the novel The Maelstrom.

In July of 2020, Tellest created a WorldAnvil that you can follow to see various parts of the world.  Patrons are also given exclusive access to special behind-the-scenes material, including secrets like alternate timeline details, different views on the maps, and more!
Goals
$7.72 of $25 per month
