Summary: On episode 127 of the WRITER 2.0 Podcast, I spoke with action-adventure thriller author, and trombone major, <a href="http://www.nickthacker.com/">Nick Thacker</a>.<br> We discussed:<br> <br> * the deadline he gave himself that helped him finish his first book;<br> * why he gives away so many books for free;<br> * how to decide when to quit the day job;<br> * the boost a <a href="https://www.bookbub.com">Bookbub</a> promo can bring.<br> <br> About our guest:<br> <a href="http://www.nickthacker.com/">Nick Thacker</a> 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.<br> 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.<br>
