Submission Guidelines for writers
happy art edizioni, submission guideline for writers

It is very important that you follow our submission guidelines precisely.
First of all; you MUST send your works to our Italian offices in Milan (20110), casella postale 10947, cpd Milano Isola, to the attention of the Authors Selection Dept.
The new postal regulations intended to safeguard the mail have dramatically increased the burdens on us in getting out the mail.  We want all our prospective clients to have a response from us.  We can only make that happen through your cooperation. 
If you included the amount for the stamps (same amount as you paid to send us your work), you will receive a response. The Post Office will discard or return mail that has no return address or mailed improperly. 
If you do not follow these instructions precisely, we cannot guarantee you will receive a response.
Also, please do not call to check up on your submission; due to the large volume of submissions we receive, we cannot track them individually.
We are actively looking for established and new writers in a wide range of genres.
We're interested in all kinds of commercial fiction, including thrillers, mysteries, children's, romance, women's fiction, ethnic, science fiction, fantasy and general fiction.  We are also interested in literary fiction as long as it has a strong narrative.
In nonfiction, we are interested in current affairs, health, science, psychology, cookbooks, new age, spirituality, pop-culture, adventure, true crime, biography and memoir.  We are also open to reviewing other genres and topics, as long as the material is for a trade or general audience and not scholarly.
We do accept unsolicited manuscripts and seriously consider all submissions, including first time writers.
We only accept finished manuscripts (at least 90% complete). Please do not submit ideas or  treatments.
Please, always include the amount for the stamps (same amount as you paid to send us your work).
We do not respond to submissions that aren't accompanied by the amount for the stamps.  We will not return any material unless the amount for the stamps accompanies the submission.
Additionally, because of new postal regulations, we cannot use metered mail for returns. All self-addressed envelopes must have the amount for the stamps, not meters. Also, please make sure you include an envelope, just because you send amount for the stamps does not mean you will receive a response.
Please send only paper submissions; no disks or CDs.
We do accept queries via email.  However, we will not download attachments and will only respond to emails that we are interested in.
We normally respond to email queries within one week. 
If we haven't responded after one week, we are either not interested in the material or have not received the email.
For illustrators, please visit the Submission Guidelines for Illustrators.
Due to new postal regulations, all self-addressed envelopes must follow these guidelines. Send us the amount for postal stamps only.  No metered mail.  Envelopes must be addressed and include our address as the return address in the top left corner of the envelope.  Use self-sealing envelopes.  We prefer business-sized (#10) envelopes (and like sized envelopes) that will be used for our response only— all submission material will be discarded.  If you want your manuscript returned to you, large mailing envelopes with sufficient amount for postage are acceptable.  Please keep in mind that this is a courtesy; we do our best to make sure you receive your manuscript back but cannot guarantee it.
Because of the large volume of submissions that we receive, we will only respond to those that follow the above guidelines.
Submissions made that do not follow our protocol will be discarded.
The address to send submissions to is:
Happy Art Edizioni
Authors Selection Dept.
casella postale 10947
cpd Milano Isola
20110 Milano - Italy
Please, take note that, with our free reading service, we do not give comments or suggestions; we only value if your work is suitable for our Publishing Company.
Thank you for considering us as Publishing Company. 
We look forward to reading your work.
