Hey guys. June here. 
Or Aliston J. Drake
Or Poindexter.

I'm a low fantasy writer and a gay dude from New England, USA. I consider myself a Wattpad veteran and now I get to call myself a Wattpad Star & a Paid Stories Author. Do I deserve a pat on the back? I get a pat on the back.
When I'm not writing you can find me on twitter complaining about my characters or gushing about one of my numerous pets. Or if you're special you can check out my Youtube to watch me complain/talk about writing adjacent things.
I also have a website. That's a thing: https://alistondrakewrites.com/

My current projects are:

The Saints Song Series: Court-intrigue and low fantasy romance about Prince Argus trying to gain political relevance and uphold his reputation while juggling a relationship with a pirate named Leo. The first book in the series, Of Rust and Gold, joined the Paid Stories Program in November of 2019. The sequels and bonus stories remain free.

The Sorcerei of Cokumpoint: Everyone believes her twin brother is dead except for Ethel. In a world where natural magic no longer exists, she teams up with a self-proclaimed witch so sniff out the trail of someone who should be dead. A standalone rewrite of Tea Time (one of the first books I wrote on this site).

Someone Will Die: A popular college student is killed and a professor's secret circle and dirty secrets come to light. Involves eldritch love interests, monsters killing monsters, and lots of LGBT college students.

The Night Court: Courtesans and old gods. Murder and mayhem. What could go wrong?
