Founded by Joel Bain in 2016, Q Book Editing specializes in elevating your fiction.


Our editorial focus is working with self-publishing authors and assisting memoir writers.

Regardless of where you are on your journey to publishing your manuscript or writing your memoir, we'd be happy to discuss how we might assist you.

We offer a wide range of options to help meet your editing needs, whether you need a full manuscript consultation, content editing, copy editing, proofreading, or project management for your memoir.

We can help refine your copy and focus your project to better position it for publishing success.

As a Vancouver Book Editor, our role is to be an honest coach about your performance as a writer and also be your greatest advocate.

Each project is very different with specific needs. We have a history of being flexible with deadlines, being timely, and making the editing process work for you.



Interested in working together? Request an editing consultation below.

We would be happy to provide you a competitive quote after a review of your manuscript and a quick discussion.

How much should you expect to budget for editing? It depends on the project as each writer has different strengths and weaknesses. Once we are in touch, we will arrange for a review of a sample of your manuscript.

All quotes are in USD unless otherwise specified. Quotes are also available in Canadian dollars.
