About the weather....
I just left North Dakota where it can drop 50 degrees in just a few hours so I can't help but see New Orleans is perpetually mild!
I understand that if your reference is essentially only coastal I can understand why our take on temperatures is so different.
It would still seem more apropos of the climate to to lament the heat!
it's really just details.

This has been a really intriguing story so far. A little magic, a little supernatural, with a good dose of music thrown in the mix. I'm also attracted to stories where the victim is addicted to something - blood, sex, drugs, rock & roll haha. I really like your fresh approach to a story and look forward to reading more.

You're doing a good job but you are way off about
Being from New Orleans and having traveled the world,
I'd have to say that my hometown has some of the mildest winters I've ever experienced anywhere from that Latitude
the levees block the wind,
not just the water.
Any "winds" coming off of the Mississippi are weak and would never even matter to most of the City.
New Orleans is nestled in a bowl of levees and is well sheltered from the Mississippi-
there are lots of trees scattered buildings and crooked streets.
Even working ON the Mississippi is more like being on the Bayou than the Great Lakes.
That was sounding more like Chicago...
I only mention that because you have otherwise done an excellent job concerning attention to detail-
Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Hi Griffin, I'm not from New Orleans but I was born and still live on the Gulf Coast and have spent lots of time there. Apparently I gave the impression in the last chapter that New Orleans winters were always brutal. What I was trying to convey was that yes sometimes the winters are mild but there are times when they are not. Like other areas of the coast it is a damp cold that is difficult to dress for. There have been winters when the temperature has dipped into the teens (rare) and even snowed (super rare). Other times, as you have stated the weather is spring like and you can walk around in a tee shirts and shorts. The only predictable thing about weather on the coast is its unpredictable. Levees are present but not everywhere. I remember some winters when it was really windy and cold. Anyway thanks for pointing out my blunder, meaning to convey one image but coming across as if I was saying something entirely different. All the best, Jenn
