Frequently Asked Questions

Can I attend as a featured author?

All Featured Author spots are full at this time. You’re more than welcome to attend the event as a reader and hand out swag at meals if you’d like but we cannot add you to the signing or any other activities–that is for Featured Authors only. If you’re interested in donating books to the Welcome Bags please contact Charlotte at kallypsocon@gmail.com.

I'd like to find a roommate to share lodging costs. How can I go about that?

The private KallypsoCon 2020 Attendee Group! You can find a link to this group in your Welcome email. Then post and make arrangements with others who are attending. Only one person staying in each room should book the hotel reservation. The event sponsors aren’t responsible if anything falls through on these roommate deals, though, so keep in touch with whoever holds the reservation for your room with the hotel to make sure it is confirmed before the cutoff for the rate.

Something has come up and I need to request a refund. What do I do?

Please email Charlotte at kallypsocon@gmail.com if you have registered but won’t be able to attend. In order to meet our financial obligations for food and premium swag ordered, refunds will be made on the following schedule (Eastern Daylight Time, or New York City time):

100% Refund (less PayPal fees, if any): through 12 midnight EDT on April 15, 2020
50% Refund (less PayPal fees, if any): from 12:01 a.m. EDT April 16, 2020 to 12 midnight EDT May 24, 2020.
No refunds available May 25, 2020 or after because we will have to pay for that persons meals and all expenses related to the con.

Please make sure you remember to cancel your hotel room as well if you’re already booked. 

Why can I not find the name of the hotel?

Well…the short answer is we’ve been burned in the past by people who have booked rooms under our attendee group rate but not registered for the conference – in some cases our attendees were left without group rate rooms because of it. One of the perks of registering for the conference is that you receive discounted nightly rates – this year our $99 CAD/night rate is well under the regular rate of the hotel. For this reason we conceal the name of the hotel unless you’ve registered for the conference until after the expiration date on our group rate. Rest assured you will know the name of the hotel in advance of the day the Book Signing will occur. We hope you understand!

Where is Kallypsocon going next?

KallypsoCon 2021 is tenatively set for Orlando, FL with a BDSM theme. Due to an overwhelming response to our last BDSM Romance conference in 2017 we do expect this one to sell out as well. 

Can I be a Volunteer?

Honestly the most work involved with KallypsoCon happens BEFORE the event! Because of that reason we don’t need volunteers or event staff to help it run. Thanks for your interest!
