Tom Collins and Eric Bryan Moore Reunite for the Revised Audiobook Edition of the Opioid Mystery Novel, Diversion to reinvigorate a larger audience for his book

I love sitting down in my booth and telling a good story. I take great pride in bringing perfectly nuanced stories to life”

— Eric Bryan Moore

FRANKLIN, TN, UNITED STATES, May 10, 2023/ — Tom Collins and acclaimed voice actor, Eric Bryan Moore, are reuniting to re-record the audio edition of Collins’ thrilling opioid-laden mystery novel, Diversion. This collaboration marks the renewal of a successful partnership that has brought the author’s captivating stories to life through Moore’s masterful narration.

In the revised audiobook edition, Moore, who has narrated all of Collins’ books except for The Claret Murders and the original audio edition of Diversion, returns to lend his distinctive voice to this suspenseful story of illegal drugs in Tennessee. Collins explained, “The previous narrator did a professional job as a reader. Nevertheless, I thought the story deserved Eric Moore’s voice as a full time professional voice actor.” With over 150 audiobooks to his name, Moore records from his home studio in São Paulo, Brazil, and remains dedicated to the art of storytelling. “I love sitting down in my booth and telling a good story. I take great pride in bringing perfectly nuanced stories to life,” he said.

Diversion, set in the picturesque countryside around Manchester and Tullahoma, delves into the murky world of illegal drugs and their link to our nation’s enemies. In the story, the Middle Tennessee area is fast becoming the primary East Coast source for the illicit diversion of pharmaceuticals through pill mills. The area also includes the Bonnaroo Music Festival, and the Arnold Air Force Base housing the nation’s only propulsion test facilities. Both Bonnaroo and Arnold are threatened by enemies willing to die to harm us.

The new recording of Diversion promises to provide an immersive and engaging listening experience. The powerful combination of Tom Collins’ compelling storytelling and the exceptional narration of voice actor Eric Bryan Moore will surely captivate readers and listeners alike.
