What is Reading Until Dawn Con’s focus?
Reading Until Dawn Con is unlike other author/reader conferences as the focus will be involving authors and readers in interactive games and activities. It is not a genre specific conference, and currently, we have featured authors who write fantasy, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, science fiction, romantic suspense, contemporary romance, new adult, and young adult. The emcee for 2017 is New York Times Bestselling author Larissa Ione.
What does my registration fee cover?

For more information on registration fees please see our registration page.
Are there other costs?
Booze. (You gotta pay for your own booze, guys.)
Is there a special room price at the hotel?
Yes! Please be patient while I work out the kinks with our hotel contract. As soon as I have all of the information I will let you know.
How many attendees can be in one room?
All hotels will take 4 (quads) in a regular double queen room, however, additional people in the room above two will typically pay extra.
How do I register for my room?
If you need to reserve a room with our hotel, we do have a block with a special rate for RUDC attendees. More information about reserving rooms will come soon.
Is there a shuttle from the airport?
Is there an age limit for the event?
Due to adult content in certain games, Reading Until Dawn Con is strictly an adult convention, so no one under 18 years old is permitted to attend.
Do you give passes for press?
Unfortunately, no. If you would like to attend, you must pay the standard registration fee.
What should I wear? Is the convention casual dress?
Yes! Because we will be playing games all weekend wear comfortable clothing. Wear what your comfortable in, whether its yoga pants and bunny slippers or full-blown elaborate costumes, we won’t judge.
Do I need to bring a costume?
There are no costume parties, but if you want to dress up as a pirate, we won’t judge you. (But I will ask to take a selfie with you.)
Are meals included?
As of right now, no. There will be no meals included. If this changes, I’ll let you know.
Are drinks included?
No. You have to pay for your own drinks. (We will have a cash bar at the signing, and the hotel does have a fully stocked bar.)
Can I have a party in my room?
You are responsible for any damages done to your hotel room. So, if you want to have a party, you can. Just be careful.
When should I arrive?
Check-in will begin at 10:00 AM on Saturday June 3rd. You can come any time after that.
When does the convention end?
Reading Until Dawn Con will end around midnight. You can leave whenever you want – but for all the night owls out there, we will be partying all night long.
When do I need to pay?
Payment is due upon registration.
What if I need to cancel?
Life happens and things don’t always go according to plan. If you find yourself unable to come party we will refund 100% of your ticket through March 20th. After, a 50% refund of your ticket will be given. There will be no refunds given after May 1st, 2017.
I registered, what now?
Can I take pictures?
Yes! Take tons! We will have a photographer walking around, snapping pictures, but she can’t catch everything. If you are taking pictures and posting them online, be sure to tag us! But please remember to ask an author before snapping a picture, as everyone has different preferences.
What do I put as my badge name?
Anything you want, but make it something you will answer to and remember when you arrive to the convention registration.
Will there be a booksigning?
Yes! Our Books and Booze signing will be for attendees only. After playing games with these authors, you can buy their books and get them signed while drinking and having fun.
Have a question? Email me at readinguntildawncon at gmail dot com. Unless you can ask the question in less than 140 characters. Then send me a tweet at our official account (@RUDCon) or on my personal account (@DustMiteBunny). I’ll try to respond as quickly as possible but these books won’t read themselves! (Just kidding. I spend way more time online than I should.)
