Jon Evans was born in Portsmouth, England and has worked in a fabulously dull series of jobs, none of which constitute a career. While doing these jobs the dream was always to become a writer and there were many false starts and unfinished projects.

Commando & Guerrilla & Ascendant are the first three books in a space marine series about the adventures of the Royal Marine Space Commandos.

Jon and his co-author (and brother), James, are working on the fourth book in the series now and it'll be out as soon as humanly possible. Gunboat will follow the Royal Navy & the Marines as they seek to bring the fight to the enemy.

In the new year (2019) the first three books in the trilogy will be released on audiobook by Podium Publishing.

Electricians don't down tools and say they have electricians block if something is difficult to do. If you think you have writer's block, you don't but you may have encountered a problem. Perhaps you are a pantser and are unsure what to write next because you don't have an outline. Perhaps you are a plotter but haven't quite got the perfect phrase. In the first instance write a better outline and iron out any plot holes, in the second stop wordsmithing. It's just not necessary in most cases. For both, you could try writing another scene or story, or doing some world building. Go for a walk. Just remember, you're not really blocked, if you have a problem at all it's something else so don't get in your head about the terrors of writer's block. (less)

Making another person happy feels great for a human being and writing is on the list of things that you can do that can potentially make thousands of people happy. Plus you get to enjoy the writing and ultimately, you can do so in your pyjamas (unless you write in the local cafe).(less)

Ten of the Best Military Sci-Fi Authors

I could try and give you a list of my top ten favourite military science fiction novels and series, ranked from one to ten. But here’s the thing. I don’t believe it’s realistic to take novels, films, audiobooks, sculptures and paintings and assign a numerical value to them.


How can you expect someone to choose between Da Vinci and Rembrandt? Or Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman? Perhaps roast dinners
