Ancient History Magazine Kickstarter
#1
The results from our survey are very encouraging, so we've started a Kickstarter campaign to get Ancient History Magazine off the ground. Please consider supporting our venture! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/113...-the-groun

I pledged, and posted the kickstarter notice to all my Facebook history and classics groups. Now all of you can do the same.

Hey Jasper, I've just received my first subscription in the mail, and I'm wanting to back this. If I order it now since I just got the subscription will it double down or will it count for next year?

ETA: Is there any chance if I put a large donation in I could get back order copies instead?

Hi Aaron
AHM is its own thing. If you got the 60euro (or up) level, you could select to get an extra year of AW sub, that's no problem.

Instead of books, yeah, we could probably convert that to back copies.

Jasper,

Pledge is out. I gave a tad more then the 60 Euro. I would like to talk about those back orders on ancient history if that's possible.

I wish you guys/gals the best of luck, and it's good to see a magazine out on ancient history. I'm helping spread the word, along with getting other people that love history to help get this off the ground.

Hi Aaron
Thanks so much! Re back issues: after the KS is over and if successful, we'll survey all backers to see what their choices are. So that's when we'll get back to you too.

Best!

I DL the sample too and I very happy with the content, I don't like the Magenta titles though, maybe you can think of another color

Thanks!
We've found that Magenta displays very differently depending on your screen's settings.

Wow. Half way over the goal and we still have 27 days left. I think we can make this happen.

Thanks to the generous support of many, the Kickstarter is almost fully funded! We've got two more weeks to go, so if you haven't yet, now's your time! (to paraphrase the Duke of Wellington...)
