Tommy The Bruce is an unusual anti-hero...

James Yorkston is working on a new novel, and you can get involved in the publishing process.

The Scottish songwriter is a noted wordsmith, with his 2011 touring diaries It's Lovely To Be Here remaining a firm favourite with Clash staff.

2016 saw the publication of the writer's debut novel Three Craws, and it seems a new tome is on the way.

The High And Lonesome Blues Of Tommy The Bruce is set to be published through Unbound, and will utilise the project's unique crowdfunding system.

Fans will be involved throughout, with perks ranging from a simple dedication to a carefully selected bottle of single malt.
