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. More information here:

She sent a kind, apologetic note that the process took so long (6 months from query to rejection of full manuscript), but that "the story didn't grab her the way she'd hoped." She said she was open to reading more of my work - though it seems she's now closed for queries and didn't provide an email for further contact.
