Please be aware:

My former agent worked at Fuse Literary. When she made the decision to leave agenting, Gordon and Laurie (the heads of the agency) informed her clients that the agency would not necessarily keep us on. We waited three weeks to hear back, with no communication about our work from the agency. Most of us were dropped with a copy-paste impersonal letter with no references.
