All of Catherine’s work is released into the public domain shortly after publication, as soon as she gets the rights back to the pieces in question. For a list of current exceptions (i.e. work she does not currently have the rights to), see the License page.
Catherine accepts recurring donations via the platform LiberaPay, which itself is integrated with the PayPal and Stripe platforms. Apart from this, it is possible to support Catherine’s work by buying it at Smashwords or at many other e-book stores.
- Non-existent, but this is probably the closest thing.
Though her work is in the public domain, Catherine still has some non-obligatory requests for people seeking to use her work:
- Attribution: Catherine always appreciates being attributed.
- Similar license: Wherever possible, Catherine requests that derivatives of her work be free to reproduce and free to make derivative works from (even if they are not necessarily public domain).
- Non-exploitation: In the rare case that someone makes a significant amount of money off her work, Catherine requests to be given her share.
Again these are not obligations, just good things to do with any artist. Truly exploitative people are obviously just going to ignore the above requests, but Catherine has put them there for people who don’t want to be like that.
