While I'm on the subject of music, I have to give HUGE thanks to singer-songwriter Mariah McManus. We may be strangers, but I feel as though I've come to know her through her beautiful music. Her songs -- especially Unarmed, which inspired the title of this novel -- helped me every step of the way. Give her music a listen, you won't regret it.
