FAQs

What is Slicebooks?

Slicebooks includes both publishing services and the Slicebooks Store. Publishing services includes web tools for ebook slicing of ePub and PDF files, remixing new ebooks, management and automatic publishing to the Slicebooks Store.

What is the Slicebooks Store?

The Slicebooks Store offers all content “whole, sliced and remixable”. All books available on the Slicebooks Store can be purchased whole and by the slice (usually by the chapter, although the actual slice is up to the publisher). Also, customers can “remix” their own custom ebooks using the world’s first ebook remix widget.

What is Consumer Remix?

Customers can mix and match sliced content from various books to create their own custom ebook, which can be read online or downloaded.

Here’s an example of a Slicebooks Store Product Page. It shows the whole book, the slices, and a remix in progress that includes content from 3 different titles.

How can we distribute our content on the Slicebooks Store?

1. Sign up for an account-- It's free and there is no credit card required.

Upload nonfiction titles (plus short stories and poetry)

Our aim is to offer only content that can effectively be offered “whole or sliced”. For that reason only nonfiction content will be offered on the Slicebooks Store (exceptions may be made for short story collections). Our system will use your category metadata to filter out fiction content.

2. All content will be offered whole, sliced and remixable. Any book listed on the Slicebooks Store will be sliced into chapters. During this introductory phase we will do this at no charge to the author/publisher.

How are slices priced?

Except when the content owner chooses otherwise, we price the chapters so that the sum of the chapters is more than the whole ebook price, rounded upward to the next .99 mark.

For example, if the ebook costs $10, and there are 10 chapters, each chapter will be $1.99. If a slice is sold as part of a new Remix, how do we get paid?

Whether they are sold alone or as part of a remixed ebook, all slices are sold as individual ebooks with their own respective pricing. The quarterly royalty report tracks all sales by ebook and by slice.
