Maybe I just hang out in casinos too often. Only way someone wearing a mask is the most unusual thing I see in a given day is if I donít leave the house.

Thatís not strictly true, but it definitely couldnít have been the most unusual thing I saw that week.

Iím unreadable, confusing and have a tendency to meander around aimlessly.

What is the book called? Or can you post a link?

Now my curiosity is peaking because of all of this discussion and controversy (I guess its good free advertising for the author).

Now I am even more confused. It this the right one? This seems to have nothing to do with gambling or AP (unless it is a segment in the story)?

Also, no Kindle option?

Ok to clear it up.

I wrote a Wizard of Oz sequel (that one in the link) a decade ago. It was while trying to get the same film project greenlit. (Don't listen to EB about anything pertaining to this. The film had the Transformers producer and the Batman producer, Pras Michel of the music group the Fugees working on it etc. It's just difficult to get a film made in Hollywood is all.

In 2012 I started my AP career and have since written a book (memoir really) about my experiences. i have not even attempted to publish it yet as I am too busy doing AP.

But many APs on here are super concerned for when I do publish it. Even just posting one play got them all tangled up in a knot

Meanwhile I was accused of making the play public to sell my book. That could not be further from the truth as the only book available is unrelated to gambling and written a decade ago. I am AP full time now and not writing or working on publishing my projects but after they made the accusations I ran with it and said yeah go buy my book

Does that help?

The Wizard himself asked me to write a short story for his website so I apparently have some fans.

If you want a gambling fiction short story of mine, start with this one. It's one of my favorites

Oh I see.
So you are both an author who is also an AP, and people are concerned because you are working on a memoir that features AP stories.

I think your book looks interesting, a Modern take on Oz. I would read it if there were an Ebook version. Judging at least how you post on here, I enjoy your writing style. (Slightly off topic)- Did you ever start work on Part II?

As for the AP drama, I think people vastly overreacted. I have commented before about how people get so defensive about even brief recreational AP opportunities.

If someone is leaving a forum because someone is discussing AP play...I would probably argue that they should have never been on a forum in the first place.

I have the outlines for parts 2 and 3 but never wrote them. I got distracted

Again, if you didn't catch it read this story. It's a long short story but I think it is worth the read. The Wiz endorsed it
