Book Description

About the Author

Rebecca Tsaros Dickson writes. Because it's what she knows. Stints as a reporter for two daily newspapers, which included two Presidential Primary races, taught her the value of a well-chosen word. She left journalism in 2006 to play Momma, but instead found herself filling blank pages (hundreds) while the kids napped. Her first book was released in November 2010. The collection of short stories, aptly titled "I Could Tell You Stories," was released with its own playlist and a boatload of art. Her newest release, "Say My Name," began as an experiment on her blog. A fictional story about high school lovers who reconnect in their 40s, it rides the edge of life's toughest moments. It aims at teaching us how we interact as people through voyeuristic scenes of love and loss. And it is raw with emotion, a style which began with "I Could Tell You Stories." Her new project, temporarily dubbed "Don't Ruin my Life: Crap my kids say" is in the works. Becky lives with people - and too many dogs - in the middle of nowhere, New Hampshire. For now, it's where she belongs.

In this modern 'social networking' era, where so many of us have encountered past loves, lost loves and paths not taken, Becky has woven a tale of two lovers in their 40s coming to terms with their true feelings after decades of unrequited passion. Anyone who has ever loved, lost and held out hope in spite of it all will see a piece of themselves in this novella - and it may not be easy to face. A must-read, and an outstanding sophomore effort by Rebecca Tsaros Dickson...HIGHLY recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars READ this BOOK! September 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm not one to comment on what I call "real books." I'm usually not one to sit and read them. After all what do I know besides music? But, I did read this one and some of Becky's other work and her words captivate me. The words float off the page into my mind and create an instant visual. She's an intelligent, creative writer and you should check her out! (ok, back to my music books :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant December 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How long should a story be? As long as it takes and not one word more. SAY MY NAME is a novella -- shorter than a novel but longer than a short story. I read it in half an hour, I think, but I have to admit I lost track of time.

The alphabet is a wonderful tool in the right hands. The mark of a bad writer is when the reader has to reread sentences to decipher the meaning. Rebecca T. Dickson crafts sentences you'll reread simply for the pleasure of tasting them again on your tongue. SAY MY NAME is a first-person journey with a woman in her 40s coming to grips with what might have been. The story is powerful and real. No doubt those same scenes have been acted out in real life countless times. Beyond that, it's beautifully written. Masterful, like a fine painting. Yes, it's short, as long as the story requires, and not one word more.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want more, so much more! October 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved every word, it's like the author reached into my mind and pulled out what words to use to make me feel all the feelings that I'd long forgotten. A lot of books only skim the surface of my emotional responses, but this was the real thing.
But.... why don't I get more of a look into their reunion...WHY? I made an emotional investment into these two people whose lives were so tightly entwined,and I felt bereft when the end came.
My favorite part was the scene where they sat in the truck, with goodbye looming between them. My heart was on fire in so many ways!
It's an art form to be able to say so much by the simple act of tasting the cinnamon and sugar on someone's thumb... I feel my chest tightening just thinking about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rebecca Rebecca Rebecca! October 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
SAY MY NAME by Rebecca Tsaros Dickson is a masterpiece of a novella. From one of the, or the most intimate writer I've read still alive to write today. In fact, I can't think of any writer like her. The pull of her voice, of her characters, she grabs at your heart. With words, she paints you more than pictures,she takes you there so can almost smell it, feel a breeze. She's able to evoke feelings you didn't know exist.

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, Beckey Tsaros Dickson's Novella "Say My Name." I could immerse myself in her character, feel the warmth of her wide wood floors on my bare feet, feel the passion of a love lost, and the wonder of finding that ONE again. Becky has an amazing talent for story telling. She is able to capture the heart, soul, and heat in her words. This story made me feel the joy of remembering my first love, the sadness of loss, and tears of acceptance. Keep on writing and sharing your gift with us, Ms. Dickson. =)

4.0 out of 5 stars Say My Name April 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Say My Name is a short story that is a tissue worthy, touching and all around great read. I did not know what to expect when I started it and I have to say... I LOVE it! It's short and VERY powerful! Rebecca has a great way with words. The emotions, thoughts, feelings, everything comes right at you through the pages.

A great story of a friendship, two souls that have always been a part of one another coming together again as if they've never parted and still feeling the same feelings they had from childhood. With some exceptions which I will not share. You're just going to have to read it and find out ;)

Anyone reading this review. If you're looking for something different, short and memorable. You have it right here.

More About the Author

Rebecca Tsaros Dickson writes. Because it's what she knows.

Stints as a reporter for two daily newspapers, which included two Presidential Primary races, taught her the value of a well-chosen word. She left journalism in 2006 to play Momma, but instead found herself filling blank pages (hundreds) while the kids napped. Her first book was released in November 2010. The collection of short stories, aptly titled "I Could Tell You Stories," was released with its own playlist and a boatload of art.

Her newest release, "Say My Name," began as an experiment on her blog. A fictional story about high school lovers who reconnect in their 40s, it rides the edge of life's toughest moments. It aims at teaching us how we interact as people through voyeuristic scenes of love and loss. And it is raw with emotion, a style which began with "I Could Tell You Stories."

Her new project, temporarily dubbed "Don't Ruin my Life: Crap my kids say" is in the works.

Becky remains feisty, brash and unapologetic. It took her 39 years to figure out that she's perfectly okay. In October 2012, she turned 40 - a milestone she celebrates every day by scratching things off her bucket list.

Becky lives with people - and too many dogs - in the middle of nowhere, New Hampshire. For now, it's where she belongs.
