IMPORTANT NOTES ON THE SITE:
References and Materials On This Site
Please see my bibliography for a list of references and photo credits on this
site. If I directly quote any the books, they will be referenced by initialed title and by page number as
the books are obviously copyrighted. The webmistress respects copyrights. This is how the titles will appear

Please note that the editions I use are my own copies, and the varying editions are indicated
in the bibliography. The page numbers in my copies may or may not correspond with the page numbers in other editions.
I do not mind anyone putting up links to my site via the Home page. I don't mind people
saving the pictures for their own enjoyment - that's why I have them up! Also, I assume that anything on the
Internet is generally in the public domain. If I put something up, I have to assume that it will eventually appear somewhere
else and accept that fact. Nothing on this site is for profit, but for entertainment (see remarks below) and
if someone wants to add a picture or one of the diagrams I made to their own site, that is alright with me. However,
do NOT direct link to any pictures or files on this site. Inbound linking is fine as long as the link is to Come Into My Parlor...The Mayfair Witches. Of course, I would appreciate a mention as to where you got anything you use that is from this site, but
I will not demand their removal on the basis that they are mine as long as they are not altered in any way. Thanks!
One last note about copyright: All of the content on this site
that I have written, designed or created myself is copyrighted material and my intellectual property.
Anything on this site that is not my work is referenced, which is the purpose of the The Library page. The webmistress has a severe case of animosity toward acts of plagiarism. Plagiarism is taking
someone else's written work, intellectual property, and presenting it as their own work when it is not. That is not
only morally reprehensible, it is illegal.
I have not had this problem with this site, and I certainly hope not to. My intent is
not to scare anyone, but to make sure people are clear on how material on my site may be used on other sites. I intend
for this site to be a rich, enjoyable resource concerning all things Mayfair Witches. Thank you for your understanding.
