"She's really devoted and really dedicated to any project she works on. We love Harriet Bell. Hurray for Harriet!" (MOV 4.5Mb)
“When our agent suggested we work with Harriet Bell on our book proposal and first book, we had no idea what a great decision that would be. She took our information, including some fairly complex science, and repackaged it in a way that made it much more engaging and interesting to the reader. At the same time she kept the manuscript in our voices and never oversimplified our message. In addition to her work on the manuscript, her expertise came through in other areas as well. She has many contacts in the industry and was able to talk directly to the editors and publisher to clarify and champion the book’s content and direction. In the end, we turned in a book than was far better than what we could have ever written ourselves. The New ME Diet was completed three weeks before the due date. We can’t thank you enough, Harriet, for all your excitement, guidance, and support with this book. We hope to work with you again.”

“A few years ago we had an idea to write a little book for women called The Girl's Guide to Starting Your Own Business. A kick-ass editor named Harriet Bell believed in it and in us (thank God), and helped us create a book that inspired enough women for it to become a BusinessWeek bestseller. Fast forward five years, thanks to Harriet's expertise, smarts, and editing know-how we are writing our fourth Girl’s Guide book. Without her we would still be just two girls with a good idea. Thanks, Harriet!”

“Harriet Bell has just the qualities an author wants in an editor: She’s easy-going, conscientious, responsive, efficient, and direct. And, as an added bonus to a food writer, she LOVES to cook!”
"Having done two books (so far) with Harriet Bell, I have nothing but the highest praise for her creativity, insights, and professionalism. Harriet brings so much to each project, it's hard to quantify its true worth. I cannot wait for our next project together."
