  • “Intriguing and draws you in. Love it!” Leanne D.
  • “Adducent is a top-notch, first class organization which I would highly recommend to another who may have an interest in publishing a book.

  • “Thank you. I truly enjoy your creativity in the written word. And find your writing very inspiring.” Margie Casados
    [commenting at Google+ on posts and articles from Dennis Lowery]
  • “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.”
  • “I could not have written this book without the advice and support of Dennis. I was consistently amazed by his advice, creativity, and ability to describe situations with clarity and simplicity. I have great respect and admiration for him. He is a Superstar!” Dr. Irene Trowell-Harris, Major General, USAF (Retired)
  • “Well written and well put, Dennis!” Michael Koontz

    [about reading an excerpt from an early part of The Devil’s Writer]
  • “I’ve had the good fortune for the past five years to work closely with Dennis on several different book projects. He is a highly skilled writer and editor and showed unequaled patience when answering the mountain of any questions I presented him on a regular basis. I know I was not his only client, and was impressed by his management ability to work with other clients but to ensure my projects kept moving forward so as to meet the agreed upon deadline and deliverable date. He is the consummate professional whose attention to detail and work ethic is beyond reproach. I continue to work with Dennis on other projects and highly recommend him!” Greg Slavonic

  • “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.

And thank you so much for stringing the lines you so beautifully dotted.” Nina M.
  • “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
