"July Spotlight: Emily Franke and the Healing Power of Storytelling"

As July unfolds, we are excited to continue our Monthly Author Feature Series at AcuteByDesign. Following the successful launch in June with Raven Howell, this month we spotlight another remarkable talent from our community—Emily Franke, a vibrant young author whose debut children’s book, The Ladybug Who Lived On A Four Leaf Clover, has already resonated deeply with readers of all ages. Join us as we delve into Emily's journey, her inspirations, and the profound themes woven through her work.

Introducing Emily Franke as Our July Featured Author

Kicking off in July, we are proud to feature Emily Franke, a dynamic young author whose debut children’s book, The Ladybug Who Lived On A Four Leaf Clover, has already touched hearts and sparked imaginations across various audiences. Emily’s journey into the realm of writing began during a profoundly personal moment—navigating the grief of losing her beloved grandmother. This experience not only shaped her path as a writer but also inspired her to create stories that resonate with themes of love, loss, and healing.

Emily’s story is about a little girl who, through the appearance of a magical ladybug, learns that her grandmother’s presence still surrounds her. This narrative captures the essence of Emily's own experiences and offers a comforting message to anyone grappling with loss: “There are signs everywhere, just look around!”

Live Events to Connect Readers and Authors

One of the most exciting aspects of this series will be the live events hosted on Instagram. Scheduled for the last week of each month, these sessions will allow fans and followers to engage directly with our featured authors. During these live events, viewers can ask questions, delve deeper into the stories, and gain valuable insights into the life of a writer.
