Well, I'm putting together my 15-page proposal for the book project, and I'll meet with the guy tomorrow to go over it. This has been really hard -- not the proposal part, because there's a lot of great info and sample online for that. The hard part has been trying to set a price and reason out how much I should charge for all the various jobs this project includes. I've not been in a position to set a fee in a very long time, and I was never very confident or good at it, so I'm really trying to be fair and firm this time. It's a huge project! I won't be able to do other things while I'm working on this, so the pay has to match the commitment ... ugh.

Please wish me luck.
