There is no set number of words or lines that may be used without our written permission. If you are not sure, it is best to request permission anyway. We reserve the right to deny permission. If the material in the Black Rose Books title is labeled "reprinted" or "reused with permission," that means we do not control the rights to the material and you are advised to contact the source cited.
