Then there's the title. The working title was Rumba. That was the first edit. Rebels on the Mountain is better, but not by much.
I suppose it's time to repackage it. I doubt if the publisher will be willing to pay for it so it will have to come out of my pocket. He might be inclined to make the investment but for the fact that it hasn't sold enough copies to recoup his original outlay.
The manuscript itself doesn't seem to be holding back sales. Indeed fourteen of the sixteen reviews it has received are 5-Star. The others are 4-Star and one of those was the most effusive in praise.
At any rate, I've started with a new synopsis. Please read it (below) and let me know what you think. Thanks.
