Adducent is a creative company that provides writing, ghostwriter and ghostwriting, writing improvement, story & book development, and publishing services. We assist people and organizations with their writing needs and find, develop, write, ghostwrite and publish stories and books that are entertaining, enlightening, informative and enjoyable to read. We believe in cause-based stories — nonfiction and fiction — that present compelling messages. Adducent works with clients internationally and several have appeared on PBS NewsHour, 60 Minutes and MSNBC (and other TV and radio shows nationally and in their local markets).
Our authors and clients are Admirals, Generals, other high-ranking military, CEOs and Senior Executives (including former CEOs, Chairmen, and SVPs of multibillion-dollar NYSE companies), Senators, Foreign Policy & Defense Industry Professionals, Government / Intelligence & Security Agency Professionals, University Professors, Scientists, Doctors, Surgeons, Attorneys, Entrepreneurs and Business Professionals with high standards of quality and expectations. Ten of our clients have done a second and third book with us, and three are on their fourth. And there are too many smaller, short-form projects to count with clients: from developing and crafting from scratch, re-writing and editing existing content for personal or professional bios and profiles, to personal and professional blog content, to periodic content needed for email and newsletter subscribers, social or professional media or for organizational needs. Dennis Lowery, founder, and president of Adducent is also available for story and book development and writing or publishing project management consultation.
