Is it ok to put words  in parentheses around a word in this sentence?

You do not want the title page (or pages) to have numbers and footer information

Yes, parentheses can be around words in a sentence.  Here is more information about using parentheses:


In theory, your usage is fine.  However, I can't remember ever seeing a title page that was more than one page.  A title page is, by definition, one page.  There is no reason to talk about multiple title pages, even if you are talking about multiple books.  You are giving information on what not to include on a title page. 


If this is formal writing, avoid using the word you.  Direction can still easily be given without it.


Do not include a page number or footer information on the title page.
