"Typical" fees for ghostwriting a book are flat and by the word or
page, with $100/page for a 200-250 page nonfiction/business book
being midrange (add about 50% additional for fiction work). Of
course, if your prospective client is someone world-famous whose
name we would all recognize and whose book is likely to hit the
NYT best seller list, then all bets are off on negotiations

If your alternative proposals would have come to less than $20-25k,
you are already underselling yourself and you might want to just
refer the prospective client to any of a number of other professional
ghostwriters who will be happy to send him a $20k-30k quote.
