I don't know what writer rates are in your location, but
here I would deal with this situation simply by telling
her that I didn't think there was a potential for an
arrangement, since *my* bill rate is $50 and I have all
the work I can handle right now. Assuming your normal
rate is higher than her concept of "inexpensively," then
this approach should still work. Hell, even if you don't
normally get $50 an hour, maybe for her that should still
be your quoted rate. :)

OK, to finish the saga. She wants to put me in a "stable" with other

people and vend out my services. Now she bills out at $50/hr., and she

wants to make a profit on top of paying me or someone else, so she'll be

paying in the $20s. In addition, she wants samples of my work

immediately, and when I told her I was swamped and could barely keep my

head above water with all the work I have she became irrate with me. She

told me she can't do some of the work people are calling her to do so

she really needs me to work for her, and inexpensively.
