I am Alaskan born and raised. Writing is my passion and I indulge in it daily. I write every day so I will be posting sample chapters, queries, and whatever strikes my fancy.
It is my sole purpose in writing to create worlds that people can lose themselves in. That at the end of the book you look back and are going to miss the place I just constructed in words and imagination. That the characters felt real and you might miss most of them…maybe even the ‘bad guy.’ Come and explore the worlds I have created.
K.T. Munson is a independent author with a passion for building worlds with words. First published at 5 years old in the young writers conference, she has pursued writing ever since. She maintains a blog creatingworldswithwords.wordpress.com that is about writing and her novels. She was born and raised in the last frontier, the great state of Alaska.

Request a Review
Despite some bad experiences with authors I’m tentatively opening back up my review requests to limited genres. Your book must be able to standalone and you have to be able to provide a mobi copy.
Genres I’m presently accepting:
- Romance (paranormal and historical presently get preference) F/M preferred.
- Steampunk (I need a good one)
- Supernatural (regular or crime)
- Some sci-fi/fantasy but I’m being picky about it so fair warning.
No zombies (I’ve done my one for the year), time travel, excessive gore/violence, or love triangles. I don’t like weak willed female/male leads unless they grow up quickly.
Really sell your book to me. Make sure I know why it is unique but still something I’ll love based on other books I’ve read. I love TV shows/movies as much as books have watched way too many of them, you can gamble on comparing your book to one. If I love the show/movie/book I’ll be more likely to consider it but be prepared to deliver!
If you don’t see your genre check back later, I’m sure more will be added as time goes by. Also check out some great review groups on Goodreads that I highly recommend:
Information to include in your request – genre, summary, title, author name, etc.
My rating scale is similar to the 5 star system:
5 stars – this book is so good that I want there to be more of them! I probably lost sleep reading it because it was just so amazing that stopping was not an option. This is a flawless piece of work that joins the greats in my humble opinion. Loved it.
4 stars-this was a solid book that I enjoyed enough that I’ll likely recommend it to other people. It had a strong enough aspect that the not as good parts didn’t distract me. Liked it.
3 stars – didn’t like it but didn’t dislike it either. I enjoyed enough parts of it that I finished it but at least one major issue or problem kept me from actually liking it. Enjoyable read.
2 stars – something was fundamentally wrong with this book and had enough issues that I can’t bring myself to even like it. Disliked it.
1 star – probably didn’t even finish it and I hate it so much that I want to burn it. Hated it.

I’ve received a few requests to host during a blog tour or promote a book prior to a release. Presently I do not recommend books that I haven’t read nor promote them on my blog. I wanted to save everyone some time for any future requests that come through – not at this time. If I change my mind I’ll include information on this later. For now, review requests only. DO NOT REQUEST BLOG TOUR ANYTHING.
Haven’t finished your manuscript? That’s okay. I am willing to do chapter exchanges with other indie authors. I always have 2 books ahead of publishing schedule that I’d love to get more opinions on. Please send me an email and we can exchange chapters. Usually it is just one chapter that is about 2,000 words give or take. A list of questions you want answered, such as is there a hook or is a specific scene clear. Email me and we can talk more!
