Sean McManus writes inspiring books about business and technology.
His novel Earworm, published on Amazon in 2015, is a techno-thriller that takes a slice through the music industry: from the boardroom to the stage; from the studio to the record fair. The story explores how fans relate to their favourite bands, how businesses can use technology to manipulate consumers, and what would happen if the music business disappeared overnight.
He is the author/co-author of Cool Scratch Projects in Easy Steps, Scratch Programming in Easy Steps, Raspberry Pi For Dummies, iPad for the Older and Wiser, Web Design in Easy Steps, Microsoft Office for the Older and Wiser, The Customer Service Pocketbook, The Interviewer's Pocketbook, Social Networking for the Older and Wiser, and Small Business Websites That Work.
He has written for magazines including Musician, Future Music, Making Music, Melody Maker, Raspberry Pi Geek, The MagPi, The Author, Press Gazette, Internet Magazine, Personal Computer World, Internet Works, Marketing Week, Start & Run Your Business, and Business 2.0. His first published pieces were program listings and programming tutorials in Amstrad Action and Amstrad Computer User.
