  1. I don’t know why whenever a list is made by this particular site, Killing Stalking gets advertised to BL fans when the author herself has said it isn’t bl. Just because it has two male leads it does not become one. You are doing more harm than good. Not only can it disillusion the reader, it increases toxic fans in the community. Someone before has also pointed out the same here before but they got ignored. Had you just advertised it as a thriller it would’ve been fine! Why say it is for BL fans? Just cause it has two guys where one looks like the typical bulky dude and another is a lithe bodied man?

    1. I agree with the point you said. It’s more of a traumatic one than BL.
