The Team


Simon Whistler

Hello there, I’m Simon Whistler, host of the Rocking Self-Publishing podcast, one of the most popular podcasts in the indie publishing space. Each week I interview one successful self-published author about how they made it so you can do the same.

In these long-form interviews (they run for about an hour), I drill down into the journey each author took to get to the point where they can call themselves a success. This information exists to provide you the inspiration and the tools so that you can do this yourself, and be one of the next generation of guests on the podcast.

Angela McConnell helps RSP get out each week on time. As well as the detailed show notes, she also provides great suggestions (topics and guests), and let’s Simon know what’s working, and what’s not!

In her own words:

I’m a speculative fiction writer based in Southern California. My work covers the gamut of weird tales, suburban fantasy, creature features, magic realism, ghost stories, supernatural chick lit, and straight-up science fiction with all the trimmings (spaceships, intergalactic travel, colonies, redshirts). I have a special fondness for short stories. You can find out more about my work and other shenanigans at
