After the success of Virtually Maria in Ireland, the Russian publishing house ACT took up the option on the book and published it under the title The Pharoah Files in 2003. What I found interesting about it was that the book was not in paperback, but in a small hardback edition approximately 5" wide by 8" tall.
This was so successful for them, that they republised in 2005 under a different cover, which I think is very clever, showing a Pharoah with his ancient Egyptian laptop.

Ask Google to translate the Russian into English for you!
In 2006, ACT published the second book in the Virtual Trilogy - A Matter of Time.
I really like the cover on this one. Again, click on the image to take you to the Russian page.
No news yet from ACT on Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, but I live in hope.
Many thanks to my overseas rights agent, Jill Hughes, for making the connections with ACT.
