How much would you charge someone who wants you to do their book cover?
Would you also only allow them to use your illustration just for the book or is it the norm to give up your rights to your illustration as a whole?
Doing a cover always means you should charge more money. Have a contract that gives them 1 time use rights only and if they would like to buy the rights come up with a figure you can live with or agree on a percentage of future use or both. Never give away the rights to your work up front. Hope this helps. Good luck!
You could also ask around on Deviant Art. Many of the artists there are commissioned for work, and I've seen more than a few book covers in their portfolio. Look for someone with a lot of experience under their belt and they can probably give you some perspective for starting out.
