“Airplane Books” and Mailing Lists with Nick Thacker–Episode 127–February 14 2017

On episode 127 of the WRITER 2.0 Podcast, I spoke with action-adventure thriller author, and trombone major, Nick Thacker.

We discussed:

  • the deadline he gave himself that helped him finish his first book;
  • why he gives away so many books for free;
  • how to decide when to quit the day job;
  • the boost a Bookbub promo can bring.


About our guest:

Nick Thacker is an action-adventure thriller novelist, who writes the types of books he likes to read. That means you won’t find anything boring, slow, or sappy in his stories. People have described his work as “airplane books,” but he just sees that as a compliment.

Nick was born in Connecticut, grew up in Texas, and lives in Colorado with his wife, two children, three dogs, and tortoise. He loves snow, drinking whiskey by the fireplace while it’s snowing, and writing books by candlelight while a thick layer of snow piles up outside.

  1. Just a note for people considering giving away free books – it’s a great thing to do but Amazon don’t allow authors to give away free copies of books in kdp select. They allow you to give 10% of a book if it’s in select, but that’s it.
