FAQ

Q. What do you mean by 'independent bookseller'?

A: We don't receive grants or public funding from e.g. the Welsh Books Council, Arts Council etc.

Q. How long will it take my book to arrive?

A: Our books are printed to order, so take slightly longer to arrive than if they were sitting in a warehouse waiting for you. As a general rule you should allow 2-3 business days printing time in addition to the specified time of your chosen shipping method. You will be informed when the order has been printed and dispatched from the distributor. Please be patient - we promise they'll be worth the wait! 

Q. I think you should publish my favourite author...

A: Great idea! Let us know at post@melinbapur.cymru and we'll see what we can do.

Q. Will you publish my book?

A: Maybe! We're keen to hear from anyone who's written anything in Welsh, translated anything into Welsh, or written or translated a book in any language with a Welsh subject or relevance. Get in touch at post@melinbapur.cymru.

Q. I am a bookseller and would like to stock your books - can I?

A: You absolutely can! Get in touch at post@melinbapur.com and we'll see what we can do.

Q. I would like to let you know about an issue with a book or an order.

A: Get in touch at post@melinbapur.com.

Q. Are your books available as eBooks?

A: Yes! You can buy our books as eBooks from the common providers like Kindle bookstore, Apple Books and many more. We will endeavour to publish eBooks around the same time as the paperbacks; however it may not be possible to make all books available as eBooks due to issues relating to publishing rights. 

Q. I think the work you are doing is really important. How can I support you?

A: Buy our books, of course, but you can also tell people about us. If you'd like to make a financial contribution you can do so through our Patreon page here: https://www.patreon.com/LlyfrauMelinBapurBooks

Q. I live outside the UK, can I buy your books?

A: Currently we can dispatch books to the UK, EU, US and Australia. Our books will be printed and posted from a provider within the respective country/EU and our postage charges reflect what they charge us to dispatch book(s) to those locations. If you live outside these areas you cannot currently buy books from this site; however you should be able to find all our books on the common online booksellers.

Q. I bought a Melin Bapur book from Amazon, eBay etc. and there is an issue.

A: If there is an issue with your order / delivery or the item arrives damaged, or if you want a refund for whatever reason you will need to contact the site from which you purchased the book, as unfortunately we cannot assist with orders made from other sites. If there is an issue with a printing error or with the content of the book itself, email us on post@melinbapur.cymru to let us know (Please note we cannot offer refunds for books purchased through other channels; you will need to contact the site from which you purchased the book in question).

Q. How do I find out about new books?

A: Follow us on X @MelinBapur or Facebook @MelinBapur
