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'll release in the next 18 months:


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 eight other published books, with nine more coming between March 2017 and July 2018.

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.

Tiers
Art Gallery Attendant
$1 or more per creation 5 patrons
All patrons who pledge a dollar or more will get to see any art after I receive it from the artists—much sooner than the schedule on our website permits. We post every day, Monday through Friday!


We'll also add your name to the Wall of Gratitude on the Tellest site, so everyone can see that you helped us!


Includes:


•Early Access to Art

•Permanent Thank you on the Tellest Website

•Patron-only Content 

Short Story Connoisseur
$3 or more per creation 1 patron
At three dollars or more, you're really helping us out. Any time a Tellest short story is ready for release, you'll be among the first to get a chance to see it. We'll host the entire story on our website, and give you an exclusive password to see it before all of its individual parts are online.


Includes:


•All previous rewards

•Instant Access to Short Stories (before they go live to the public on the Tellest site)

eBook Enthusiast
$5 or more per creation 0 patrons
For the $5 level, we're making things even more interesting. You'll get one Tellest ebook of your choosing, and some awesome content that you won't find anywhere else: sneak peeks at the notes I've taken when creating the stories (carefully curated so that you won't see anything you don't want to—or things from future, unreleased books).


Includes:


•All Previous Rewards

•A Tellest eBook of your choosing

•Spoilerific Sneak Peeks into the Margins of released books
