I know the below information sounds very serious (it is), so I want you to understand what it means, what is at the heart of all this cold business speak. Every Trick on the Hook and my patterns are my business and my means of living, so I have to take them seriously. Mostly, what I want you to understand is that what I am really asking for is respect – respect for the work that I do and respect that every click adds up to keep Every Trick on the Hook floating and to keep patterns, tricks, tutorials, information, and other fun things coming your way. And, though the below points sound like no-fun rules, they’re really just instructions on how to show respect for my work and creative content.
