I'm a staff member of Writer Beware, a publishing industry watchdog group. I'm following up on my recent blog post on Peter Senese and his Bookbeat TV project. I'd like to request that anyone who has had experience with Mr. Senese and/or Bookbeat get in touch with me. My email is beware@sfwa.org. Other contact information is here. Per Writer Beware's privacy policy, all information shared with Writer Beware is held in strictest confidence. Names and contact info will not be shared.

Thanks very much.

I always had the idea for a comic book called RoboJesus.

A cult tries to clone Jesus but it goes awry, the Vatican seizes the clone replaces the missing parts with ... well you get the idea...

I clicked teh Writer's Beware blog -- good job.

Amazing how reputable online magazines take this con man's press release seriously making it seem legitimate.

There is a great con story here for the screen. :)

I agree with the other posters who stated there is a great story here for a movie about your experience. Although it was a very painful experience for you to go through, there is definitely humor in the tragedy here. An example is the fake call to "Gary Sinise's wife" -- this Peter guy is so absolutely pathetic that he's humorous.

Writing it might be therapeutic!

Well, if that is the way the guy who was claiming to be releated to him was spelling his name, that should have been a major clue that something wasn't right, cause that is not how Gary Sinise spells his name...."Senese." :eek:

Writers Beware and Preditors and Editors were my first port of call back when my focus was on publishing - and for those out there with an interest in adapting existing or proposed books, definitely worth checking them out. Even if they don't have the contact on the website, you can email them to ask (I think you still can) and they'll check around for you. (Obviously, don't be lazy about it - it's a great option when you can't find anything out the usual ways.)


Victoria was a wealth of info back on Writers Net (a forum I used to visit) and continues to help writers around the world. When she talks, I listen. FWIW. :o
