The Goddess Lakshmi
This photo of this Indian goddess at Banteay Srei( Citadel of the Women) plays a huge part in my story that will be revealed more in the 2nd book. A lot of earlier religion in Cambodia comes from the Indian, Hindu and that is what Angkor Wat was before being a Buddhist Wat or Temple. It was dedicated to Vishnu. Lakshmi was a consort to Vishnu. I get a headache when trying to understand all the gods and goddess of India. I will be keeping it simple in my books though.
My book I guess can best be described described as Historical Romance but I'm not sure because it starts out in the present and then goes back in time. We will see what Genre the publisher puts it in.
