The Five Elements - Chapter 6: Escape

Back in early 2011, I serialized The Five Elements chapter-by-chapter. The individual posts had thousands of viewers, of which I am appreciative. However, since that time, I enrolled the novel in Amazon's KDP Select program. One of the conditions of this enrollment is that the electronic version of the novel remain exclusive to Amazon. This means this serialization needs to go on hiatus. If you would like to read the novel, please head over to Amazon where you can purchase the Kindle or print version.

Conclusion

From the perspective of The Five Elements, I want people to post links to it, email it around, host it on your site, etc. The more the merrier. A Creative Commons license of this nature is really meant to protect an artist's work while not restricting its consumption. There are other, more restrictive options, of course, but I'm making this eBook available for free, so why would I care if readers pass it around, too?
