Description: Gen was angry and she knew it. Angry about her overprotective parents, angry about the way she was teased about her height, and angry about the dirt and grime that infested every corner of Mars. But soon, she'd be on rotations. Too few went Outside...

Well it happened. I've finally run out of words for the time being, so I'll be taking a break from posting chapters of Gen for a little while. In the meantime, I have a request to those of you who have read this far. Please go back and re-read the first 3 books in the series. I have made quite a few adjustments/improvements over the past months in response to your many fine comments, and would love your input. Plus, I think you'll get more out of the story overall if you refresh your acquaintance with Young Moon, Sami and Simma. Thanks for reading, and happy holidays to all! -H.S. 12/26/2014
Dear Friends and Fans of the Water Worlds series,

Another chapter of Gen has been posted for all to read for free on Wattpad.

So I’d like to ask: are you enjoying the Water Worlds series so far? 

If so, now you can support this independent author and order the perfect holiday gift. Autographed paperback copies of the first three books in the series, Young Moon, Sami and Simma, are available now for a limited time on the Water Worlds Web site (http://WaterWorlds.me) at very reasonable prices, with a customized inscription just for you.

Re-live the horror as Young Moon realizes the scope of her Father’s deceit, follow Sami in her quest to escape the Five Tunnels (did you know Sami was a Thanksgiving story? Well it is!), and join the battle as Simma and her friends try to save the Twelve Towns against the Bishop’s cannibal army.

And with your support I can focus on finishing the series. Gen, book 4, is 85% complete and should be finally published this winter, 2015. Meeza, book 5, is well underway (30% complete) and due out next fall, with Kaio, book 6, coming in spring of 2016, followed by Brin, book 7, the following fall.

Your continued support and comments have helped to keep me writing. Thanks for that. And above all, thanks for reading!

Thanksgiving, 2014
