The recent White Lightning Trail Festival was host for many artists, crafters and authors.
James Campbell, an author from North Tazewell, Va., used the White Lightning Trail Festival to help promote some of his novels: Luther’s Mule; Ida Mae: Moonshine, Money and Misery and the novel, In Her Sister’s Shadow. His works have been well received in the Southeast Virginia area and when asked to come to the festival he felt that he just couldn’t pass the opportunity up.
When asked about his first few but extremely hot hours at the festival he told a funny story, “I went over to a local law officer and said seriously sir, I wouldn’t lie to you. I was standing on a corner earlier and saw a rose bush take off after a beagle just to get the dog to water it.”
His books are very relatable to the south and the White Lightning Trail Festival itself. He spoke about his work, “Luther’s Mule is about a little slave boy who set out with nothing but a mule to seek his fortune and finds only trouble. My second book is a two-part novel about my first beautiful girlfriend who I lost to a Baptist church deacon. I have always thought I lost her because the rascal had his own car and I was still driving my dad’s car. Seriously, she was a beauty. In the sequel, she becomes involved with one of the biggest moonshine runners in our area and by using the deacon’s car, she tries to get her family out of the poor community they lived in, it’s a great story. That book has been really blowing the doors off, I have been really, really blessed.”
