You probably know that Fall (the publishing season before the December holidays) is the biggest publishing season of the year. Publishers put their big books out during this time, and Fuse Literary is excited about its projects coming up. We can’t believe that Summer is almost over, but hopefully the promise of awesome books to come will make that fact a little less hard to bear.


Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty — “In modern-day London, two brilliant high school students, one Sherlock Holmes and a Miss James “Mori” Moriarty, meet. A murder will bring them together. The truth very well might drive them apart.” The YA debut from Heather W.
