I do not have sliding scale, but if you send me 3-7 pages and a summary, you will receive, free of charge, a sample line edit and response letter and we can both decide if we are a good fit. If it’s not work I can do well (I don’t work with porn writers – no judgment, just not in my wheelhouse) I will let you know and help you find a better editor.
My fee is $50 an hour. If your novel is 600 pages and I see on page 170 that is shouldn’t be that long and I can read the last 30 pages to figure out what matters to you, I’m not going to read the whole thing and then charge you for all that time. I’m really good at my job and I’m stringently fair.
