    children's book rates.

    Hi everyone! I think I need a little help here regarding children's book rate. Currently, I don't have access to a GAG handbook out here.

    I'm more into comic books but a client asked me to do artwork for kids. eg coloring book style of inking; pure outlines, no crosshatching strokes. Cartoony style

    My question is how do i quote it, is it per image? per page? and how much? I don't want to lose this client and she likes my samples the only thing why it can't get started, I don't know how to price it. I'm really desperate. Will someone help me?
