I have a few questions.
I'm interested in dipping my toe into fiction writing. I'm currently a tech writer, but I'd love to try my hand at some genre writing, since that's really where my first love was in the first place. I've discovered that having someone professional look over my work has always improved it by about a million percent.
What's the going rate for hiring an editor for a piece? Is there a reliable source to find them? I looked around for freelancing sites, and some of them look... fine, while some look a bit sketchy, like they'd let anyone who can string a sentence together in.
Any thoughts or leads?
