[thelist] consulting fees

I bumped into somebody yesterday and when I told her I did web design 
she asked me what my consulting fees were. I gave no answer to that 
since I've always worked in-house, not on my own, and I didn't want to 
say. It's hard for me to say because they pay me very well at work even 
though I'm not anywhere near the quality of most of you on this list, 
so I don't want to say too much or too little.

I have seen books such as the Photographer's Market 200x and a similar 
book for graphic designers, but is there something like that for web 
designers (didn't see a Web Designer's 2004 on Amazon)? I don't 
consider myself to be all that artistic, so if I were to take on a 
freelance job I would be more interested in NOT pursuing 
design-oriented jobs, if at all possible (for example, I can't possibly 
create somebody's logo or corporate look and feel, but I could 
certainly work with an existing look and feel).

Is there some book or resource that could be recommended to me?
