ROMANTIC PICKS OCTOBER BOOK BLAST! Every Five Minutes by Bronwyn Elsmore


When Bronwyn was about ten, she wrote to Author Enid Blyton telling her she was going to be a writer too. She kept to her plan and that’s been her occupation since – she admits it’s a fair while now. Over that time she has been an advertising copywriter, freelancer, contract writer, editor, education writer, playwright, writing mentor and tutor, and an academic writer during the years she was also an academic.

Of the genres she has written – fiction, non-fiction, radio stories, articles, humour, books, short stories, plays, novels – she now most enjoys writing fiction. Short stories have always been a favourite, but currently she is having a renewed love affair with the form of the novel.

If Bronwyn is not at her keyboard in Auckland, the stunning New Zealand ‘City of Sails’, she’s likely to be feeding stray cats. When seen gazing in an abstract way she’ll either be plotting the next script or trying to calculate how many million words she has produced over her career.

Gina, if that is her real name, wakes to an autumn morning and, against her better judgement, selects a light dress to wear to work. Deliberately, she misses the bus and walks into the city, then turns and walks back home. This is not a day for work. Tomorrow, in her navy pantsuit, she will be there. Today she will spend with a white dog and a remarkable man.
Every Five Minutes is also about the colour cornflower blue, beaches, parks, city streets, exotic places, coffee, flowers, polished stones, a unicorn and a swan, words, theatre, movies, music, and love. But most of all it’s about Gina, the dog, and the man.

Every Five Minutes is a B.R.A.G. Medallion Award book.

Reviewers say –

“A masterpiece…perfect in its style and delivery”

“Please make sure you add this to your to be read list.”

One thought on “ROMANTIC PICKS OCTOBER BOOK BLAST! Every Five Minutes by Bronwyn Elsmore

  1. A reader’s review of this book says –
    Love as you wish it to be.
    Every Five Minutes is…a book to read right before bedtime so you can go off to sleep with positive ideas of what a love, a relationship, a marriage should be like, a book to influence your dreams along the same lines. A woman with hang-ups from a past we never really learn about meets a sensitive, intelligent man who loves her. She slowly, almost painfully learns to love him. (Sigh, with a sappy smile on my face.)
