Check out licensing fees for publication, books, etc are determined based on types of rights (e.g., # of prints, editions, languages, types of media) and the uniqueness of your illustration.  Make sure the publisher is included in the terms of use and have a formal contract signed by all parties so you know everyone agrees to the terms of use. 

Hope that helps.  You can also do a search online for licensing illustrations for publications. Pricing varies.

A former client has sent me a note to say she is working on a new book,
and would like to re-use a figure that I drew for her a while back.  She
is offering to pay me a re-use fee, and I have no idea of what is
appropriate to charge.  Is there a formula for this? (e.g. X% of the
original fee?)
I'll be glad of any suggestions...
