Minion Troll found a new advertising platform that is based in the UK called Wise Grey Owl. They boast 8K hits everyday. Readers click on the link for either U.S. or UK and those links take you pretty much to Amazon. You can search their site by Books, Authors or Genre. To me it looks like a place where you can find diamonds in the ruff.
This particular post is what happens when I give Minion Troll assignments like - "Prove to me you know what a publishing platform is--write me a blog."
Below is what Minion Troll has to say about Publishing Platform and Wise Grey Owl.
What is a Publishing Platform?
Before we get into discussing the publishing platform I have set out to tell you more about in this article, I see it fit to first make you have a clear understanding of what a publishing platform is. This will be brief but efficiently covered. Let’s get to it…
Briefly, a publishing platform acts as a link between independent authors to potential readers of their work. A publishing platform bring these two parties together and benefits them in the following ways:

The publishing platform we are going to have a look at is The Owl Grey Publishing Platform. I will go through all the major aspects about the way this publishing tool to have a clear understanding of how the platform works and how it will help you as an author or a reader.

Wise Grey Owl is a UK based Publishing Platform whose main goal is to support writers and artists globally. As mentioned earlier, it provides promotion services to independent writers making their work reach far wider audiences.
Advertising they offer.
Wise Grey Owl allows you to advertise on their site and gives you the liberty to select the pages you wish your adverts to appear in. Authors need not create adverts unless they wish to promote their books by paid adverts.
The prices for these adverts are quite fair standing at £20 for ever or until a request is made for the advert to be removed. Payments are made in advance via PayPal, direct transfer or through a cheque drawn on a UK bank. The adverts supplied should meet the following specifications:
Terms and Conditions.
