Gordon Warnock is a founding partner at Fuse Literary, serving as a literary agent and editorial director of the Short Fuse digital publishing program.

I love how witty and real this whole series has been. Just fun, comfortable, Southern fiction. As a former teenaged boy from a broken home, I appreciated how that conflict was handled as well—it wasn’t condescending, and it didn’t feel like too much ...more

OMG. This is another one you have to read all the way through to the very end. It’s often tough to carry a novel in which you know a single looming fact and are essentially waiting that whole time for the other shoe to drop, but Kerry Lonsdale pulled ...more
