Got Any Questions?

We aspire to be as transparent as possible. We've packed the site with advice, interviews and ever-expanding FAQ and glossary sections. If there's something you remain unsure about, however, please feel free to get in touch with us at, where we would also love to hear about your experiences with any of the providers listed on our site.


Writers and Artists aim to provide you with an impartial, comprehensive comparison of self-publishing providers and their services. Companies able to be selected in the results table provide Writers & Artists with a flat fee per lead to assist with administration costs. This fee does not affect the impartiality of the comparison service. 

Unfortunately we are unable to pass your details on to every company listed. If you would still like to contact these companies, then we encourage you to do so independently.

All figures in our results table are purely based on the services offered by providers and how they best suit the needs of your writing project.
