Motley Crue: Nikki Sixx working on new book for 2012

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx has found ways to keep himself busy when he’s off the road.

An avid photographer and writer, Sixx has already published two books: “The Heroin Diaries” (2007) and “This Is Gonna Hurt” (2011).

Now, Sixx tells fans he has another two books in the works; he was asked “when is your next book coming?" on Facebook, and offered this response:

"I am working on it now... I am hoping to release it somewhere between May-June 2012,” writes Sixx. “I am writing two books as we speak actually. The 2nd book will be out in 2013.”

“Neither book is like anything I have done before (I guess you can say the same thing about The Heroin Diaries and This Is Gonna Hurt too ),” he continued. “I pride myself on not writing the same book over & over and also not using a ghost writer. Of course it takes longer, but raw honesty through words is what I am driven to publish... After I get it all out on paper I use a trusted editor to help me carve it into a palatable experience..."

Nikki and the Crue are heading to the UK for a tour next month with Def Leppard and Steel Panther; shows fire up starting December 6 in Birmingham.
