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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Something has come up and I need to request a refund. What do I do?
Please email Charlotte at email@example.com if you have registered but won’t be able to attend. In order to meet our financial obligations with the hotel and to accommodate the ever-changing global pandemic situation, full refunds will be made on a more generous schedule this year. (All times Eastern Daylight Time, or New York City time):
—100% Refund (less PayPal fees, if any): through 12 midnight EDT on October 20, 2021.
—No refunds available October 21, 2021 or after because we will have to pay for that person’s meals and all expenses related to the con. (But if you can find someone to take your ticket, we will allow transfers. Be sure to communicate this with Charlotte Oliver.)
Please make sure you remember to cancel your hotel room as well if you booked one.
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/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 as soon as you register!
Where is KallypsoCon going next?
KallypsoCon 2022 is tenatively set for the Vanocuver area in late summer. We hope to invite many of the Featured Authors from 2020 who missed out on an in-person event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
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!
