Williams Shea, co-author of "Fade to Gray," dragged inventory to the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books at USC this past weekend. "Over the past two days we sold over 70 books, had 3 interviews, talked to over 400 people, drove 800 miles, got only 3 hours of sleep each night, and ate about 2 dozen tacos," reported Shea on Facebook.
