About AJ Vanderpoel

Hey there, and thank you for stopping by my patreon! 

My goal, always, since I was the most lower-case of J's, has been to be a storyteller. To create worlds and adventures that would delight and inspire others to join me on the journey. I

t's quite literally all I have ever wanted to do. 

So what have I done? I am the author of the highly rated  Last God of Earth trilogy, a queer, clockpunk fantasy romance series set in 10th century North Africa with a roguish magical knight-errant and his extremely demon-possessed weapon of mass destruction boyfriend trying to survive a dangerous world of ink zombies, forgotten gods, werehyenas and political machinations. I also write the (currently on hiatus as I try to figure out another platform for it) urban fantasy serial The Nine, available for free. The Nine is an adventure with cute boys who are actually books, awkward lesbians and murderous meme clowns.

(I am also the author of one extremely filthy film noir novella under a very different name which is now sadly out of print.)

My roots are deep in fanfic and fanart - I've been drawing and writing since I was old enough to hold a crayon. But I have so many stories inside of me that I want to share. 

My dream is to tell unapologetically queer- in EVERY sense of the word- stories, and hopefully create sandboxes that other people will want to explore as much as the writers and artists I love make me want to do the same. 

But paying the bills through the power of imagination is hella difficult, especially when you're struggling to find an agent and are incredibly awkward and bad at self promotion.

Which I am.

My teeth are sweating as I write this.

As it stands right now, I'm working an emotionally brutal full time job and a financially inconsistent second job and things are hard. I'm hoping Patreon can help me take some of the pressure off so I can share more stories, and create new worlds for us to explore together.

So, Please join me - in the adventures already underway and the many that are yet to come- and see what we can create.

I can't wait to see where we go next.
