Harper opened a brief submissions window to unagented authors. They received 4600 manuscripts. Only 12 were selected. One of those 12, The Stolen launched Harper’s Impulse line. The Stolen was written by debut novelist Bishop O’Connell without the benefit of workshops or first readers. Harper editor Rebecca Lucash told O’Connell, “The thing that stands out to me the most was that you had an incredibly compelling cast of characters.”
