Slicebooks Secures Seed Funding From Ingram
SLICEBOOKS STORE (UPCOMING) WILL BE FIRST TO ENABLE CONSUMER REMIXING
In another ground-breaking development, the Slicebooks Store (scheduled for launch in Q3) includes the world's first eBook Remix Widget, which gives consumers the ability to drag-and-drop sliced content from any number of books to instantly create their own custom ebooks. Teachers can instantly create course packs, travelers can create custom travel guides, crafters can remix patterns, programmers can grab just the tutorials they need. The eBook Remix Widget brings the kind of choice and flexibility to ebook buyers that music buyers have had for years. Any content uploaded to Slicebooks can be included in the eBook Remix Widget and made available for consumers to purchase and use in custom remixes.
Slicebooks, owned by EarlyAccess, Inc., develops digital marketplace platforms aimed at making content available exactly how, when and where it is wanted. The Slicebooks development team is led by veterans from such leading technology publishing companies as O'Reilly Media, Pearson, and Manning. For more information, visit http://slicebooks.com
