It's not what I say... it's what THEY say. You know... Readers and Clients - by Dennis Lowery

from Dennis Lowery

Ghostwriting (click here for more information)

Original Content

We write fiction and nonfiction both as an independent author and as co-author/collaborator.

Book Development

Like a real estate developer or movie producer–we help clients take ideas and turn them into something–in this case books.

Screenwriting

We take books or concepts and develop them into properly formatted screenplays for submittal to entertainment industry professionals and production companies.

The above require custom pricing on a project-by-project basis. Please contact us if you have a project you’d like to discuss.

Exclusive Services for a defined period and project are available for a premium fee. 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 require a deposit at time of request to secure exclusivity (the deposit is applied towards the initial payment at project start).

Rewriting & Polishing of articles, Op-Eds, essays or full-book-length manuscripts

As Hemingway famously said “First drafts are crap” … and so they are. We help people rewrite their work. And rewriting is crucial to making the work better.

We can help you polish your writing to create the perfect reflection of what you want your story and book to be!

Basic editing (grammar, fixing typos, etc.) is not something we do as a standalone/sole service because there are editing services that will do it for less than what we charge for what we do. What we do does encompass basic editing functions but is what is called “Developmental Editing”, which improves the narrative (the writing) and flow of the client’s work. Basically we make what the client wrote better. Our rewriting and polishing goes a level beyond and incorporates developmental editing with viewing the project from an author’s perspective to come up with ways to improve what’s been written (and can write new content if applicable and as appropriate in collaboration with the author/client) to make the work stronger and more compelling. Most importantly… a skilled rewriter will improve “readability” which equates to better reader engagement (and that’s the key to building interest in your work and success as a writer and author). Creating quality that will engage the reader and set the hook for subsequent work is critical to build your brand as a writer and author.

We can also take a rough nonfiction/memoir draft and rewrite to a creative nonfiction style, which makes the narrative read more like a novel.
