Is a conflict of interest for freelance writers?

Just read an article on Write to Done about publishing ebooks. I had never heard of, which was recommended as a place to get a book cover designed for a mere $5. I checked Fiverr out and discovered you can get all kinds of things for just $5—including a 500-word “professionally written” article.

At that price why stop at a cover? With writers charging a penny-a-word for copy, why not just have them right the whole ebook for you? I was little surprised and disheartened to see Fiverr recommended—especially on Write to Done, a site many freelancers trust for good advice. Maybe it’s just me, but I’d feel conflicted about using an e-book cover I paid some poor graphic designer five bucks for to “wow” clients into paying me WAY more than that for my own content creating services. screenshot by Ruth Terry
