Bargain ($3.85 DRM-free @ Samhain) Lamplighters by Frazer Lee [Horror Award-Nominee]
Frazer Lee's horror novel The Lamplighters is a finalist for the Bram Stoker Superior Achievement in a First Novel Award.
To celebrate, publisher Samhain is offering 30% off the regular price of the novel (normally $5.50 USD, discount will take it to $3.85) when bought directly from their webstore using the coupon FIRSTBOOK at checkout. According to the ad banner on their frontpage, this deal is good through February the 29th.
Depending on where you live, you could probably get this cheaper via Kobo using one of the discount coupons from their current contest, but not by all that much after taxes, and Samhain is MultiFormat DRM-free in their own store and DRMed everywhere else (except B&N, for some reason, at least for the freebies they give out and AllRomance/OmniLit and Fictionwise, where they're non-discountable anyway).
Anyway, if you're interested, here's the direct link to the Samhain catalogue listing for The Lamplighters.
And if you want to try before buying, one of Frazer Lee's self-pub works showed up in the KDP Select slushpile and it's still free as of right now and should be available in all regions as part of that exclusive-or-else thing: Panic Button - A Psychological Thriller
Life on Meditrine Island is luxurious…but brief.
Marla Neuborn has found the best post-grad job in the world – as a 'Lamplighter' working on Meditrine Island, an exclusive idyllic paradise owned and operated by a consortium of billionaires. All Lamplighters have to do is tend to the mansions, cook and clean, and turn on lights to make it appear the owners are home. But the job comes with conditions. Marla will not know the exact location of the island, and she will have no contact with the outside world for the duration of her stay.
Once on the island, Marla quickly learns the billionaire lifestyle is not all it is made out to be. The chief of security rules Meditrine with an iron fist. His private police force patrols the shores night and day, and CCTV cameras watch the Lamplighters relentlessly. Soon Marla will also discover first-hand that the island hides a terrible secret. She’ll meet the resident known as the Skin Mechanic. And she’ll find out why so few Lamplighters ever leave the island alive.

Thanks for the info on this title.
It's also available from Amazon for $4.24 - for anyone who wishes to obtain it from that source.
I picked up the freebie, "Panic Button," from Amazon but I've yet to read anything by this author.
