Uh, no?

I don't work for free or that little (except in a very good cause).

$200 per novel? That will soon change once they discover they won't be making back that much money in profit!

Actually, if I was using MSWord with "track changes" (rather than hard copy and a red pen), I could probably copyedit a 50k novel in a couple of days. I mean, this is copyediting, not content editing, right? 100 bucks a day would be okay with me--unless I was stuck editing were/shifter paranormals or m/f/m. You couldn't pay me enough for that.

But I have to wonder if the pay scale isn't overly optimistic?

And here I thought they had millions of dollars with which to set up, and it was all NY editors far too clever and good for us dumb little epub folks?

So there's pot of cash behind them and they're so much more professional than all the other epubs, but they can't afford to hire editors?
