Alan Long


After almost 10 years of effort I finally am proudly announcing my new book, A Sail Aboard Walkabout. This is a true story. I know I'm not a great, or even good author, but I do have fun writing. At the very least, I want any readers to feel like they got their monies worth.

I have lived in Las Vegas since 2001 and have been playing the game of craps since 1981. After working for IBM 13 years in sales and marketing I started a transportation company in Colorado.

I sold my company in 1991 to fulfill a dream of sailing my boat, Walkabout, in the Caribbean on a full-time basis. A wonderful way to spend a few years of ones life.

Since returning to land based activities, I play craps almost every day to supplement my meager retirement. I love this game! With this success another dream soon came about in the form of writing of this book about how to win at craps on a regular basis.

I also soon realized that writing a book about playing craps is a hell of a lot harder than actually playing craps.

In addition, it covers all of the basics of the game so you will have a working knowledge of the table layout and various bets.
