If it were me, and I was planning on going with a trade publisher, I wouldn’t spend one cent on an editor. I would have 2-3 trusted betas, perhaps, but I’m trying to publish to make money (even if it’s not very much), not spend it. And frankly, no matter how good an editor you might find, their choices/preferences may conflict/contradict what an agent/publisher wants. So then you’re out that money and still no agent.
