Regarding the pay for writing textbooks...I think it depends on the subject
matter and the depth of treatment. If you're talking junior-high level
science, it probably doesn't pay that much. I do have a friend (a Ph.D
engineering prof) who penned a highly technical engineering book aimed at
college seniors in engineering and his first royalty check was $40K. When
you consider that bookstores charged something like $120 for this particular
book, the college market seems to have more promise for royalties.
