Book manuscripts - Document Direct

Book manuscripts

“My old boss, Ken Roman, the chairman of the Ogilvy Group, used to say you should always deliver more than what you promise. And that sums up the Document Direct service in my experience. Thanks to their team, I was able to write the book faster than I would have believed possible. They really do deliver the goods.”

Document Direct has wide experience of transcribing dictation from authors, writers and bloggers or turning your handwritten manuscript into type. We are also used to producing books to tight deadlines, and due to the excellence of our service, you’ll find us on the acknowledgements pages of a surprising number of published works.

Our charges are based on the length of the recording or manuscript and will remain fixed – so you will know up front what the cost will be.

Some of the key elements of our service for authors are:

  • You can send dictation digitally, or by email or upload it to our server and we will transcribe in your style of speech
  • Fax manuscript (handwriting) to us and we will copy type
  • We will copy type in your chosen layout and style, or can help you develop your own “house-style”.
  • All client data is stored securely on our servers, and we will ensure it is protected
