“The Slicebooks Store will be the first in the world that offers all content whole, sliced and remixable,” says Tomich. “We’ve been in private beta for a couple of months. Academic and trade publishers and consumers have been testing it, slicing books, creating remixes and testing the new eBook Remix App. We’ve received a lot of great feedback and plan to launch the store live at BookExpo America on May 29."
“With this next phase of our platform, the integration of the new Slicebooks Store with our services platform gives publishers an automatic publishing path to a store designed specifically to feature their newly repackaged content,” said Tomich. “We aim to build an open global repository of content that gives both academic and trade consumers complete choice -- get content whole, by-the-slice or mix and match to customize your own eBook. “
Slicebooks is an integrated platform including custom publishing services, a unique retail store and the world’s first eBook Remix App. Publishers can easily repurpose and remonitize existing content, and consumers can get content whole, by-the-slice or remix their own custom ebooks.
