I have an author of a childrens' book interested in using one of my photographs. Basically, the advice I need is what should I charge for the use of the photo? Also, what precautions should I take in making this deal. Thanks in advance for any help you may give.

License (don't "sell") the photo, and have a written contract which states the allowed use (e.g. just in the book, or for promotional materials as well). Check with one of the established stock sites or find a link to a photo stock-use calculator to get a ballpark price, which will depend on the size of the photo and the number of copies to be printed; it will probably be in the "hundreds" range.
