In my second interview with Jon Evans, we chat about the collaborative process which has just culminated in us launching a trilogy of military sci-fi books together in December 2019-January 2020.

We agreed to collaborate after recording our first interview for the podcast, after my initial reluctance.

Jon usually writes with his brother, James, but for this project, we shared the writing credits on this book.

In this interview, we discuss the entire process, including what went well and what didn't go quite so well.
