If you've ever scrolled all the way down to the bottom of my site, you've seen this:


But what does all of that mean?

It means this:

1. Sharing


You can share—copy, distribute, and transmit—anything on this site provided you adhere to the following conditions:

A. Attribution


This basically means you should cite me as the source or, in the case of an eBook, not remove my name.

B. Noncommercial


You can't make money off my material.

C. No Derivative Works


What it says.


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?

Join my reader's group and get The Hall of Riddles (An Alchemancer Prequel) and The Assassin's Dilemma (An Assassin Without a Name Prequel) as a welcome gift.
