Do you think it is worth for a self-publisher to share the future profit with an editor in order to save primary costs of publishing an e-book? Is there such a problem that it is difficult for writers to publish a book because of too big primary costs? Who would be mostly concerned with this problem?
We would be very interested to hear the editors thoughts - would you be interested in this payment model? Could it draw some editors attention? If yes, what kind of?

Publishing an ebook has little cost if you have the technical savvy and patience. Hiring an editor is pricey, especially a good one. That's my input.

Yes, that is our point. If one wants to publish a quality book, one cannot do without an editor. And an editor costs up front.

But we have already figured out that this idea has no chance of working.
Thank you for your answer.
