Last year this guide was published by Mike McDerment (founder of FreshBooks) and I really found it valuable.
It's called Breaking the Time Barrier - How to Unlock Your True Earning Potential.
The tagline is:
Learn how to charge what you're really worth. Read this book and find out how you can earn twice as much as you do today.
It's an excellent guide, and it's free (well, you can donate if you like, but no need to do so until AFTER you've read it).
I have zero affiliation with it, other than being a long-time and happy FreshBooks customer.
Content does seem to borrow extensively from the work of Alan Weiss, namely the proposal structure and value-based fees (which is not a bad thing, but it's so close it's surprising there isn't a mention of Alan's prior work in this area), while being a bit more accessible to the typical freelancer.
It is a fairly quick and easy read eBook and anyone doing freelancing, consulting, or quasi-consulting service-based businesses will get something out of it.
