Ive never written a book but I can empathise with putting a lot of effort into something and getting criticised instead of appreciated.
If anyone takes things personally I do. If there is some way we can learn to accept constructive criticism and ignore the nasty kind, we can learn something. Sounds like you got some of the mindless, nasty kind. that is not useful feedback. But I totally get the feeling of desolation and despair , when you have poured your heart and soul into it.
All the best.
