How much will a publisher pay for rights to shoot at your house?

I am in a unique situation. A celebrity rented my house as a residence and used it for commercial purposes under the auspices that she was owner of the home. Aside from tv usage, it has also recently come to my attention that my home has been featured prominently in a New York Times Best Selling book. My partner and I are going 'round and 'round about this. He says we should just settle with the production and publishing company directly ourselves, and that an entertainment attorney would milk it for all it's worth, leaving us with less than if we were to negotiate with the companies directly. I know about film and television. However, I know NOTHING about the publishing industry, or how much an owner would get paid for prominent coverage in the second of a two-part best-selling series of books. Does anyone by any chance have any clue where or how we could procure this information? Also, please weigh in...attorney, or no attorney?

Question on re-publishing Public Domain books.

What's stopping me laying out the text of these top PD books using a new PD font, designing my own covers and (occasionally) internal illustrations, and re-selling them via places like lulu.com? Just seems a good way to practice my design / layout skills and maybe turn a profit. Thoughts?

A chapter of my very own...

I'm an environmental scientist. I just received an email from a group called "Intech Open Access Publisher", referencing one of my papers, and asking me if I'd like to submit a chapter for a book. My first thoughts were "Oh man, I didn't think that paper was that great...". My second thoughts were "Hmm...I bet this is a form email sent out to thousands of researchers based on a keyword search, and it may well be a waste of time to submit an abstract." Has anyone else had experience in this sort of thing? Is it legit?
