 J.D. Wilkes is an American visual artist, musician, author, filmmaker, and Kentucky Colonel. He is also an avid purveyor of traditional American music and an accomplished musician. But he is perhaps best known as the charismatic frontman for the Legendary Shack Shakers, a band that has been described as a “dynamite group” by author/fan Stephen King, and whose music has been featured on the Grammy-nominated soundtrack for HBO’s TrueBlood. Wilkes is the author of Barn Dances and Jamborees Across Kentucky, an exploration of his state's rich folk music heritage.
Gary E. Lovely is the publisher of Harpoon Books and Editor in Chief of The Harpoon Review. He has worked as an editor for Write Bloody Publishing for the past 8 years, reviewing work for authors such as Derrick C. Brown, Taylor Mali, Brandon Melendez, and others. He is currently the Marketing Manager for The Book Loft of German Village and sits on the review board for Trillium Publishing, an imprint of Ohio State University Press.
Featured Indie: The Book Loft
Located just a few blocks South of the state capitol building in Columbus, Ohio, The Book Loft is one of the nation's largest independent bookstores. The pre-Civil War era buildings that once were general stores, a saloon, and a nickelodeon cinema, now are home to 32 rooms of Bargain Books.

Please consider ordering J.D.'s book, The Vine That Ate the South, from The Book Loft. They also have an incredible "Mystery Box" deal courtesy of Malamarkus, the skeleton lord that lives in their basement. Experienced booksellers will curate a box of books for you and throw in a Book Loft tote for $69.99. Oh, and if you don't already follow them on Twitter, do it. Trust us.
