I would take a look at what other people are charging for eBooks in the same industry, and then just try testing a few different price points. There a quite a few ebooks for sale on eBay and Craigslist, so that could be a good place to start. As for length, I would say least 40 pages to make it worth the money, and up to about 60-80 pages. You can pad it out a bit with graphics and formatting.

Agree on checking out the competition. Didn't think of looking on Craigslist for ebooks - thanks for that idea.
I think you can get away with charging more if you sell it through your own website, esp. if you position yourself as ana expert. In that environment you have total control over the pre-sale.
However on Amazon you don't know how many other books they might have looked at before yours comes up, although I guess you are compensated for the sheer volume of searches on that site.
I did a youtube video on price testing your ebook if anyone is interested.
