Ghostwriting

The Written Word …

Used with skill and purpose, is more powerful than any weapon and stronger than any drug. 

From the way we conduct our lives, run our businesses, work at our professions and the entertainment we consume; everything … whether you hear it, see it or read it … the news, politics, entertainment, education …started in some way with the written word that came out of someone’s head and off of a stylus, pen, pencil, typewriter or keyboard. Almost everything we do, in almost every way we do it, is affected by what is written and communicated to us.

“Do not talk to me of Archimedes’ lever. He was an absent-minded person with a mathematical imagination. Give me the right word and the right accent, and I will move the world.”

~ Joseph Conrad

“Words are things; and a small drop of ink, like falling dew upon a thought, produces that which makes thousands, perhaps, millions, think.”

Byron

If writing your story is important…

If getting it down and getting it published is a goal or dream you’ve had… Isn’t it time to take action and get things rolling to make it happen?

Here’s how we can help you get it done! 

You don’t have to be a writer to become an Author — use a ghostwriter!

According to a New York Times article, “On any given week, up to half of the books on any nonfiction best-seller list are written by someone other than the name on the book.”

The reason is simple: not everyone has the time to sit down and write a book and not every person with great experience, knowledge, information and stories to share is a skilled writer. But that does not mean their experience, knowledge and story should not be shared … that is where a co-author or ghost writer comes in.

A major factor in providing such assistance is determined by how much time and effort the Client can personally commit to the project. Based on that we would work out the appropriate level of support to help you with writing your Book. We’d do that through the following process:

  • Planned interviews with the Client based on appropriate topics to support their story development;
  • working with rough materials they could provide us (records, journals, notes, letters etc.) and
  • the Client dictating their thoughts/remembrances/stories and sending to us as a digital file that we then transcribe (we will work with the Client to show them how to use an inexpensive digital recorder that they plug into their computer and can then easily email the file to us).
  • Another alternative to help with the writing is our Client Dictation Services™ where we set up a special phone number for the Client (private and exclusively for their use), where they can call in and dictate their information directly from their phone.  Then we remotely download the file from each session for our staff to transcribe.

These are successful and proven ways for the Client to write their Book; through a series of sessions supplementing any other written materials the Client could provide to enable us to create their manuscript for them.  The Client has quality control of the process and manuscript every step of the way.  We then collaborate with the Client to shape the final version of their Book for publication.

Bottom line we can take what a Client has as an objective and content for their Book, whether in their head or in some written form and put it in shape for them to help create the Book they want to publish.

Exclusive Services for a defined period and project are available. Such exclusive service can reduce completion time for projects but must be scheduled in advance; i.e. with sufficient lead-time for Adducent’s planning and scheduling purposes. Exclusive Services are provided at a premium and require a deposit at time of request to secure exclusivity (the deposit is applied towards the initial payment at project start).

Please understand that as writers and ghostwriters we charge a fee and do not work for payment on publication or receive our payment from any sales of your book.

  • “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.

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