I find BL took a while for me too. It's been a month, and I barely ever touched popular in so far down a position that it is too far down the list for anyone to scroll, I think. I've never had much luck with trending, in romance or in BL, so I don't even hope for that one.
Sometimes, when I feel down, I move the Lone Werewolf to fantasy or drama, lol, just to see it high in Popular, loool
I got the free 3 months of Canva membership with my Watty win (yay!) so maybe I can make a better cover for it or something. But, I kindda knew it was a niche project, so I didn't expect to have the huge success on it. And it is doing okay-ish for the moment.
I was bad this moment and wrote a trial chapter for what I think for sure will be my next story, plus did some research to make sure I am not out to lunch with what I am doing in Bad Break in terms of surfing in South California. Yeah, I know. Writers and their searches, lol
