Tech writers will generally get 1/3 to 1/4 the options that a main line
programmer would. Recent examples: Java programmer we placed got 2200 shares,
tech writer at same office got 650. This is based on my ancedotal evidence and
not a scientific survey.

MY company, Anitian Consulting, provides representation services. There are
other that do the same.

You'll be hard pressed to find any resources like this. There is no hard and
fast way to determine what is a good offer and what is not. As I mentioned
before, get a valuation on the company or negotiate in terms of percentage

Good luck
