What we’ve accomplished with our publishing and writing: December 2009 through January 2013

January 28th, 2013
From Dennis Lowery–

It’s been barely three years since I took Adducent in a new direction, to follow where my heart wanted to take me (and Adducent). I’m passionate about writing and helping others to write and publish. We’ve accomplished a lot in a short amount of time and look forward to years more of creativity.

Three Years of Production (December 2009 through January 2013)

Some (not all) of our Feedback & Testimonials

  • “Well written and well put, Dennis!” Michael Koontz
    [Commenting on "A Ring... to bind them?" at www.DennisLowery.com]
  • “While writing a book is often a constant journey of starts and stops, Dennis provided the motivation and expertise to get me over my last “stop.” Dennis, understanding the importance of the message the book contained, pressed me to get it out—and provided the ultimate vehicle for my doing so.” James G. Zumwalt

  • “He tells his story with such compassion that one really feels that he is sitting with you, telling his story.” Vicki Hubbert
  • “This was a really well thought out book, I loved the characters and the plot. I loved the little fantasy elements that opened up amazing avenues in the book, with talking animals, talking books and all sorts of other delights. Highly recommended. Reminded me a little of the Harry Potter books – but without the magic, and maybe also of the Spiderwick Chronicles – but without the freaky creatures.” Buddy

    [about reading an excerpt from an early part of The Devil’s Writer]
  • “This book is right up my alley. I’ve had so many jobs that I tried to make my life/ career. I never felt fulfilled. I felt there was always something missing. It might be hard to follow the path of your talent/dream but you’re going to have to work hard no matter what you choose. So why not choose what’s going to make you happy & fulfilled. What you truly are. You just have to find what it is.” Rebecca W.
  • “Dennis Lowery, your eloquent and poignant words personify the concept of the “butterfly effect” for we are affected by the world around us as much it is affected by us. Such words can only come from a creative soul; so sensitive and able to sense the effects, and strong enough to be able to transform them into some cohesive form. Kudos to you Dennis!! And thank you so much for stringing the lines you so beautifully dotted.” Nina M.
  • “Thank you so much, Dennis! Thank you for sharing with us your wonderful gift for writing!!” L. DeHope

  • “Well written and full of good information.” Richard R.
  • “This is the first essay I read on Figment.com aside from the typical story variety, and to be completely honest, you have a really amazing talent for weaving inspiration with your words. I’m sure your daughters appreciate the beautiful message you put together for them. I really enjoyed the rawness in your tone throughout this essay. It was heartfelt and captured the message with a polished simplicity that is very rare in writers today. I really appreciated that aspect of your writing. The only critique I have is that I have nothing negative to critique about! And I guess that’s a good thing! Overall, bravo! I honestly enjoyed this, and I hope to read more of your writings and stories.” :)))))) Miss J.

  • “The author has not only created a wonderful mix of fact and fiction, he has created characters that are very believable. It makes you believe the characters in the story are real. Usually this is the part of stories that are missing. The story line is great but the characters are flat. Not so with this one.”
  • “And finally, big thanks to Dennis Lowery, who helped to gel the story, and stitch it all together. Without his guidance, this project would never have been finalized.” Barbara Benke
  • “I really need to take this to heart. I tend to blindly believe everyone is good and I’ve been burned a good few times because of it. I enjoyed reading this. It is wise.” NJ
