Well, that's part of being a writer. As a composer and songwriter, I also receive criticism. I've learned to take the best of someone's advice as an opportunity to grow. I figured the writing needed a bit of help. That's why I have the support of all you wonderful fellow authors and creators here. When it comes to reacting negatively to critique, sure it hurts to be told where you are weak, but when it needs to be said, it needs to be said.

Thank you for all your help! All of you have been helpful. I'd rather receive help and constructive critisism than no comments all! Thanks for making me feel welcome!! The next version of this book will be great!

It is refreshing Cody, to get a reply from someone with the right attitude. A recent interaction here with a forum member had a very different, very negative result.
At the end of the day, they are only opinions anyway. You choose whether or not to listen to them - but in general, everyone here means well and advice and opinions are given with the intention of making *your* product more professional and saleable.

The best advice I can give you is for you to simply go to a bookstore or library and find a book similar to your own...a book of poetry, for instance...and use its formatting as a model: the placement of the title page, copyright information, typography/fonts, etc.
