Author's Notes

Raw Nerve is a novel I wrote in the 90's after asking myself the question: why didn't Colin Powell run for the White House? The moment I asked myself that question I began to write the book. Upon completion I was very quickly signed by a literary agent in New York. I think the junior editors in every publishing house wanted to publish, but the novel was seen as too controversial by every president and vice-president of the publishers. After Barack Obama was elected, I ceased pushing Raw Nerve. In 2012 I self-published Raw Nerve Amazon but quickly unpublished because I wasn't happy with the formatting, but a few months ago I was contacted by a reader who'd bought the book before I'd unpublished. The reader was writing to me because she wanted to know where she could buy a copy for a friend who she knew would love it so I promised her I would republish. And readers are really responding with two fantastic 5 star reviews already on Amazon's UK site.
