Let’s talk about the trending page

I rarely do this because other community authors usually recommend me great stories to read but today I decided to check the trending page to find a new story to read. Does anyone else feel like these stories on the trending page all follow the same theme and plot. With a few exceptions of course. A lot of authors write amazing stories on this platform but will rarely get recognition because their story is a romance that features a typical bad boy, gang leader, or rude boss. Anyways feel free to share what you think about the trending page as well. You can also share your story if you’re an author, I love reading on Episode and will promote it on my Insta page if I like it :heartpulse:

Moved to Episode Fan Community since Community is for discussion of specific stories. Make sure to check out our Forum Tutorial for more info about creating topics, and feel free to PM me if you’ve got questions. :wink:

At this point I just look to recommendations and the Promote Your Story forum to find stories. I do look at the trending section, but it seems like 90 out of 100 of the stories are always the same ones (or maybe that’s just the fantasy section since that’s the one I look at the most). :thinking:

And since you mentioned sharing...

Here’s my story info if you’re interested. :grin:

Title: Eternal Oblivion
Author: Silver Lady
Genre: Fantasy primarily with some mystery, action, drama, romance, and just a hint of historical fiction thrown in from time to time (more so in later chapters).
Style: Limelight
Number of Episodes: Thirteen currently, more on the way.
CC: Kinda. You can’t customize the main three characters (for story reasons), but there is a character for you to customize starting with chapter five. You won’t see much of her to start, but she becomes more important later in the plot.
Description: Something ancient plots unseen in the darkness, and Amara must quickly uncover the mystery surrounding it. Otherwise, all will be lost.

It has been months since I last checked the trending section but unfortunately it has been like for a while. Before I started looking at shelves and the Forums for recommendations, I would have to scroll endlessly to find something different and I looked in both the Action genre and the Trending section.

If you like Action, here is my story
Secrets from Hell (Ink) Link: :fire:

Description

“Since we were born, we’ve been torn. But, I’ve lost too much, even myself…”
A cold-blooded killer with an odd family whose members have a lot of secrets to unfold.
