1.2  If I give my personal details on your site, will you give it to other companies?  
A.  See our privacy policy on the home page. Basically, we do not share your email id and other personal details with any other company. We certainly never sell it. But sometimes, on careful consideration, we may exchange email lists with other publishers when we believe that such an exchange will benefit both the lists.

2.1  I don't want to pay by credit card. How do I pay?  
A.  You can send us a cheque or demand draft or money order at our terrestrial address (go to ABOUT US). If you are paying by cheque, please add Rs 45 / US$ 2.50 to any cheque drawn on a bank outside Delhi. You don?t need to add this amount to cheques that will pay at par, or to money orders or demand drafts

2.2  It is too much of a hassle paying by cheques or draft or money order for single copy orders. What should I do?  
A.  You could deposit an advance with us, from which we will keep deducting for every purchase you make. We will inform you about the balance in your account.

3.1  Is your Book Club membership an annual scheme?  
A.  No. It is a one-time payment. No renewals required.  
  Top  
3.2  The Book Club membership sounds like a great idea. Can I gift it to someone?  
A.  Of course. Fill up the form online in the name of the person you want to gift the membership to and make the payment. Simple.

3.3  I became a member of the Book Club when the website did not exist. What happens to my membership now?  
A.  Your membership remains intact. To buy books against your membership online, type in your username and password, and the site will recognize you as a member and offer discounts accordingly.

3.4  I don?t remember my username and password. What do I do?  
A.  Use the forgot password link to recover your password. Those members who have bought membership offline, however, have been assigned usernames and passwords by us. If you are one of them, write to us at bookclub@leftword.com, and we will send your username and password. Log on and change your password to something you will remember easily.

3.5  What is the difference between registered users and book club members?  
A.  Registered members can buy books online, while book club members get discounts on their purchases.

3.6  I had become a member of the book club long ago. As I recall, there were two kinds of membership then. But on the website, I find only one. What does this mean?  
A.  We have simplified the book club membership structure, and there is now only one kind of membership. All existing members will now get discounts according to the new scheme.  
  Top  
3.7  Can I avail of my member?s discount at book shops?  
A.  No. To avail of your member?s discount, you will have to buy from us directly.  
  Top  
4.1  Does LeftWord accept unsolicited proposals?  
A.  Yes. Write to us at editor@leftword.com and send us your proposal. The proposal should be of reasonable length, and should explain as clearly as possible the overall structure and intention of the book. A chapter by chapter breakup is also useful. If you have draft chapters or an introduction, we will be glad to look at those.  
  Top  
4.2  Does LeftWord publish fiction, poetry and children?s books?  
A.  No.  
  Top  
4.3  Do I have to be a communist or a Marxist to become your author?  
A.  No. Many of our authors would not be categorized either communist or Marxist. In any case, these are somewhat flexible categories, and what appears a left-liberal to one may seem a hardcore communist to another. So don't worry about labels. If you have a proposal that you think would fit the LeftWord list, send it along. We will look at the proposal for what it contains, and not be worried about whether the author is 'commuinst' or 'Marxist' or anything else!
