How much should I charge to author a textbook for a Taiwanese company?
A Taiwanese publishing company has asked me to author a short English textbook (the final edit should have around 35,000 words). I have a good amount of experience with ESL (teaching, creating new material, worked on multi-media stuff, etc) and I'm doing my PhD in linguistics now - but I'm no expert.
They've asked me tell them how much I'd like to earn.
What is a fair price for this? (Either per word or for the entire project.) Should my first offer be a bit higher than what I expect, or is that sleazy somehow?
I'd appreciate any advice -
