I always hate reading Forums where a person asks the community for help and there is no closure at the end.
Today I found out my book was approved on ACX!
Oddly enough, SAMPLE A above did in fact work. Albeit I did create another version like SAMPLE B but never had to use it for a resubmission.
I have learned so much in such a short period of time.
Thank you to u/mikewoodsays, u/mega_mang0, u/nastyhammer, u/petripeeduhpedro, and finally, u/commentonthat for going above and beyond.
u/commentonthat took a look at a sample file and was able to give me professional guidance that was well needed.
Thank you everyone! If you want to check the book out, it's available here:
Thank you again,
