I have been approached by an acquaintance about illustrating a children's book that she is working on, but I have only ever illustrated my own works and have no idea what one charges for illustrations. What is a fair quote for illustrations and how does one work out the pricing?

I'm sure it varies illustrator to illustrator and project to project, depending on a whole lot of variables. Try these links that have useful resources for freelancing and working with self publishers.
