Author uses voice over skills to release audiobook version of his latest work

KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE, USA, December 1, 2021 / -- In a recent report, the trade publication IBISWorld said that the audiobooks publishing industry in the U.S. in 2021 will end up being worth at least $1.3 billion. They and other industry experts expect the market to grow at 25% each year through 2027. With that in mind, Knoxville, TN author Jim Santos, already a successful writer with work published in venues like The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, and several International Living magazines and e-publications, has now used his experience as a voice over artist to release an audiobook version of his most popular book to date.

Living Abroad: Challenging the Myths of Expat Life” is unique in that it is not a “how-to” book or even a “why to” book about retiring overseas. Instead, it is an insider’s look from someone who has lived life abroad and written for travel/retirement publications. Using informative and often amusing examples from his own life and travels, the author tackles questions and myths he has heard in his experiences meeting other expats as well as talking with potential expats via email and at conventions.

He found that although there is a lot of good information out there, there is a lot of misinformation. Sometimes the positive features of expat life is stressed while the common problems may be minimized or even ignored. This book does not proselytize for moving abroad, but instead aims at giving the reader enough real-life information to make their own decision.

Now enjoy this often laugh-out-loud funny account in the author’s own voice. The audiobook is available via Audible, iTunes, and Amazon – or simply follow this link:
