PRLog - Jun. 12, 2012 - When John Flores hit the Submit button to publish his first Amazon Kindle eBook “Ten Tips: Motorcycle Travel Photos” he had mixed emotions. “In my fantasy-head I was going to sell millions and end up on Good Morning America.” John said, “And in the next breath I’d wonder if I could sell four copies.”

Released May 1, 2012, the book started slowly but has since steadily climbed the charts, peaking recently as the top selling Kindle eBook in the Motorcycle category and #2 in the Automobile category. It’s currently ahead of such notable authors such as the actor Ewan McGregor (who wrote about his motorcycle travels in “The Long Way Round”) and Jeremy Clarkson, host of the popular car show “Top Gear”.

Flores is a regular contributor to RoadRUNNER Magazine, the country’s largest motorcycle touring publication. “I go on three to four trips a year for RoadRUNNER Magazine (http://www.roadrunner.travel), visiting wonderful places around the world, and come back with hundreds of photos and dozens of stories to write. Over the years I’ve honed my skills in this particular genre - motorcycle travel photography - and realized that I had knowledge and experience that others could learn from. I gave a presentation last year on the topic and it was very well-received. That gave me the confidence to go ahead with the book.”

As the title suggests, “Ten Tips: Motorcycle Travel Photos”  (http://www.amazon.com/Ten-Tips-Motorcycle-Travel-ebook/dp...)  contains ten simple tips that can make motorcyclists become better photographers. “It’s not about the camera,” Flores says, “It’s about the person holding the camera, and helping them think and see like photographers. They’ve already got the most important part down - as touring motorcyclists they go to interesting places. I just want to help them bring those memories home.”

Flores illustrates his examples with photos from his many journeys, and has created a companion Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/TenTipsMotorcycleTravelPhotos) where he encourages others to share photos of their adventures.

“Just five year ago there’d be considerable risk with trying to publish and market a niche publication like this. It would be hard to draw the interest of publishers, and if you self-published a paper book you’d run the risk of a garage full of unsold books. The Amazon Kindle has changed the game.” While Flores is not quite ready to quit his day job as a digital marketing consultant, he’s already thinking about other book projects. “I don’t think that I’ll be writing the next ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ any time soon, but Kindle eBooks has definitely opened new doors to me.”
