I hear that you have to get a professional editor to go over your MS if you want to get published. The problem is, the fee they charge is out of reach for most people, as it could easily be 5k-10k or more, and very few can afford that before they're published, if they're newbies. So what are people who write a book for the first time supposed to do? Give up because they can't afford one? Or do editors work on a "no publish no fee" basis, like agents?
