In his international bestseller Beneath a Marble Sky, John Shors wrote about the ancient passion, beauty, and brilliance that inspired the building of the Taj Mahal. Now with Temple of a Thousand Faces, he brings to life the legendary temple of Angkor Wat, an unrivaled marvel of ornately carved towers and stone statues. There, in a story set nearly a thousand years ago, an empire is lost, a royal love is tested, and heroism is reborn. When his land is taken by force, Prince Jayavar of the Khmer people narrowly escapes death at the hands of the conquering Cham king, Indravarman. Exiled from their homeland, he and his mystical wife Ajadevi set up a secret camp in the jungle with the intention of amassing an army bold enough to reclaim their kingdom and free their people. Meanwhile, Indravarman rules with an iron fist, pitting even his most trusted men against each other and quashing any hint of rebellion. Moving from a poor fisherman's family whose sons find the courage to take up arms against their oppressors, to a beautiful bride who becomes a prize of war, to an ambitious warrior whose allegiance is torn--Temple of a Thousand Faces is an unforgettable saga of love, betrayal, and survival at any cost.

"This informal and inviting book offers a much-needed resource for the many K-12 teachers who wonder what to do about grammar - how to teach it, how to apply it, how to learn what they themselves were never taught. It provides teachers a way to negotiate the often conflicting goals of high-stakes testing, confident writing, the culturally inclusive classroom, and the teaching of standard English while also honoring other varieties of English. Novice and veteran teachers alike will appreciate the hands-on approach to grammar in the classroom that includes numerous examples and practical vignettes describing real teachers' real classroom experiences with specific grammar lessons - including ESL issues - as well as the chapters that review grammar basics. A grammar glossary and annotated list of sources are also included."

Naima Alam is a 24-year-old poet stirred into writing by her love for all things ominous, ambiguous, and confusing. Her respect for poetry was awakened by all whimsical ingredients of the written and spoken word. Her poetry is a fusion of mystical spirituality, teeny-bopper playful crush stories, magical imaginings, and dreams of an idealistic Bohemian love. Through her verse we experience the flight in her mind's eye as she visualizes herself as an unruly, defiant adventurer wading through the muddy backwoods of love, she herself an embodiment of haze, anticipation, and heart, unconcerned with disapproval and sometimes with reality.
1 boy, 1 thousand faces, but each his own. 1 clay, 1 thousand plus figures, each
hand-blown. 1 color, 1 thousand shades, each with respective wraths. 1 God, 1
thousand beliefs, each with his own path. I haven't forgotten. By God, I haven't.

Kevin w Ferrell aka Jusblack; was born and raised in Chicago, IL. It would be easy to say that he was just another victim of the mean inner city streets but that’s not necessarily the case, a family of five, single mother home that pretty much made due. Somewhere along the way in a quest to find his place in society a couple of wrong turns were made on this journey called life and he found himself in situations which would form his frame of thinking which fueled his actions to whit’s end alcohol and drug addiction, and near death experiences never yearning to quit, just looking for a way out. Bishop Pettis once told him that she didn’t have to sell God, and when he wants you he’ll get you. Recovery enabled him to connect to that which had been missing, which in turn gave him that out he had been looking for all his life and it was poetry. 1000 Faces, Grant Me Serenity is just his journey to answers for questions rarely asked.
