SPELLBINDING SCIENCE FANTASY
Hi, I'm Kyle West, best-selling science fiction and fantasy author.
My books are published on a variety of platforms, including Amazon, Audible, Apple Books, and more.
Lately, I've decided to do something a bit unprecedented, and perhaps even subversive...
Bypassing Audible to sell my audiobooks direct to listeners.
I'm a huge sci-fi and fantasy nerd. Always have been. And I listen to a lot of audiobooks while doing chores, driving, or picking up my kids' messes at the end of the day.
One of the ugly realities is that Audible only pays indie authors like me about 15% of the list price for every sale.
For this reason, I decided to take control.
And not only that, but to give audiobook lovers a deal than even Audible couldn't match...
Here's the deal...
I'm offering the first seven audiobooks of my bestselling, spellbinding Starsea Cycle series for $5 each.
Yep, that's right. $5 each.
These books easily cost $70 or more on Audible using credits. But through me, you can get the exact same books for less than half of that.
But I don't just beat Audible on price. You also get the files DRM free so you aren't tied down to a specific app.
You also have another great option for listening: the BookFunnel app.
It syncs your progress across devices and has many playback speed options.

Lucian dreams of a new life outside the cesspool of Earth. Unfortunately, his wish comes true when the government identifies him as a mage.
No one knows why the mages are being born. No one knows why their powers lead to madness and death in a terrifying disease known as "the fraying".
The only solution is to quarantine the mages in academies.
When Lucian is exiled from Earth, he must travel to the distant world of Volsung to receive training.
During the long passage, he meets a mysterious mage. She prophesies Lucian is marked by the Manifold, the reality that is the source of all magic.
It is a destiny that requires Lucian to master abilities he never imagined he possessed.
But that’s the last thing he wants. He faces two choices. To accept his new reality as a mage. Or, to try and outrun destiny...
