The designer who normally does my ebook covers is no longer working out. Creating my own covers is not an option for me given my current lack of design chops. Some members of my writing group suggested Fiverr as the go-to place for covers. Looking around there it seems there are some decent "gigs" that would serve my needs. However, I have some questions about Fiverr itself and about the possible knock-on effects of using Fiverr for graphic design. [more inside]

I am looking for a book that was published in the late 1980s. I cannot remember the title or the author, only that it is a memoir, and that the cover of the book (oft advertised in the New Yorker) had a small picture of a boy jumping between two rocks. The design of the cover was very much like this one for Lewis Thomas' The Fragile Species
, with the picture of the jumping boy there in the center. The only other thing I can remember is that the author's name started with two initials, i.e. T R Something or A R Something. Please help!
I recently have become very fond of some vocal track only versions of pop and rock songs that someone had reversed engineered from DVDs and posted online, and I would like to find more music like this. [more inside]
It seems (could just be confirmation bias) that book cover/dust jacket materials have changed over the years. I find a lot of trade paperbacks and hardcover dust jackets now have a "soapy" feel to them rather than the previous plastic feel. What is this material? Is it new? What drives choices of materials?
I heard a cover of the Seals and Crofts Song Summer Breeze while shopping in a mall store last week. Can you help me figure out who the artist was? It was in a mellow R&B style probably contemporary from the last 5 years or so, with kind of a hip-hop/reggae influenced groove, and (most likely) a female vocalist. The general mood was mellow and groovy and a little sexy.

Suggest some technically competent YouTube artists who cover well-known songs on different instruments
for a different genre
. I love when someone takes a song I thought I knew, and shows me a whole different way to perform it. Vocals are okay
as long as they're not shrill or cookie-monster growls, but instrumental is preferred, especially if it involves strings
and/or double pedal bass
. [more inside]
