Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I possess...

I'm feeling very cheerful this morning. (Look away now if you're in a bad mood.)

Here's why:

1) Over You has its first review on Amazon - and it's an absolute corker, five stars no less. Whoopeee!!

2) The sun is shining (I know! I can hardly believe it myself!)

3) I'm off to London today for a meeting, (the one with cake, hoorah), and because of stupid peak-time rip-off fares etc can't get a train back until 7pm. That gives me at least two and half hours' hanging around in London time where I will be forced to shop. Daaamn.

4) I received a huge box of advance copies of my new children's series this morning all about cheeky Prince Jake ... and they're hardbacks, darlings!

5) Did I mention the cake and shopping?

Have a fab day honey. And a new book series for my Ben to read. Yay!

I was grumpy, but you've made me smile.

Brilliant review, no wonder you're having a great day.

Enjoy the cake and shopping, heavenly.

Paige said...

Having never written a review before, I'm glad you like it. I had meant to write one before but with my blogging break...I forgot.

Glad you are all smiley!

Pat Posner said...

Have a great time. Enjoy the cake and the shopping and everything.

The Prince Jake series looks fantastic, love the titles.

Thanks JJ (love that 'Cooooor'!) I am still happy!

Cheers Caroline! Glad to have made you smile x

Thanks Debs, cake and shopping is such a good combo, isn't it? It really did feel a treat.

Paige! I've been meaning to email you to say a proper thanks. That review is fab, thank you so much. My ranking shot up as soon as you had posted it!

Thanks Pat, I had a lovely day. And I am so chuffed with the Prince Jakes, Orchard have done a brilliant job on them. Hoorah!

Paige said...

You're welcome! I never quite realised how important reviews were on Amazon so I think I'll start doing a few more.

Lucy Diamond said...

Paige - do! Authors around the country will love you for it, if they're half as good as the review you gave Over You! :)

Hi - good to 'meet' you - found you via Caroline S. The cover of your new book is gorgeous.

Lucy Diamond said...

Nice to meet you too, Fiona! And yes, it is such a gorgeous cover, isn't it? Just looking at it makes me happy!

The occasional lamps gleamed on the expanse of muddy road and shining pavement. A single cab was splashing its way from the Oxford Street end.

"Well, Watson, it's as well we have not to turn out to-night," said Holmes, laying aside his lens and rolling up the palimpsest. "I've done enough for one sitting. It is trying work for the eyes. So far as I can make out, it is nothing more exciting than an Abbey's accounts dating from the second half of the fifteenth century. Halloa! halloa! halloa! What's this?"

His hair and beard were white, save that the latter was curiously stained with yellow around his mouth. A cigarette glowed amid the tangle of white hair, and the air of the room was fetid with stale tobacco smoke. As he held out his hand to Holmes, I perceived that it was also stained with yellow nicotine.

"A smoker, Mr. Holmes?" said he, speaking in well-chosen English, with a curious little mincing accent. "Pray take a cigarette. And you, sir? I can recommend them, for I have them especially prepared by Ionides, of Alexandria. He sends me a thousand at a time, and I grieve to say that I have to arrange for a fresh supply every fortnight. Bad, sir, very bad, but an old man has few pleasures. Tobacco and my work -- that is all that is left to me."

Why the devil couldn't you tell us so before?" he cried, and went leaping downstairs in his turn.

He was followed by nearly all the cricketers, who now burst upon the scene in a body, only to desert it for the chase. Raffles was one of them, and I would gladly have been another, had not the footman chosen this moment to hurl me from him, and to make a dash in the direction from which they had come. Lord Amersteth had him in an instant; but the fellow fought desperately, and it took the two of us to drag him downstairs, amid a terrified chorus from half-open doors. Eventually we handed him over to two other footmen who appeared with their nightshirts tucked into their trousers, and my host was good enough to compliment me as he led the way outside.

She was brown with the dust and draped with the cobwebs which had come from the walls of her hiding-place. Her face, too, was streaked with grime, and at the best she could never have been handsome, for she had the exact physical characteristics which Holmes had divined, with, in addition, a long and obstinate chin. What with her natural blindness, and what with the change from dark to light, she stood as one dazed, blinking about her to see where and who we were. And yet, in spite of all these disadvantages, there was a certain nobility in the woman's bearing -- a gallantry in the defiant chin and in the upraised head, which compelled something of respect and admiration.

The ratio of real power to apparent power is called power factor and is a number always between 0 and 1. Where the currents and voltages have non-sinusoidal forms, power factor is generalized to include the effects of distortion.
