Labor Day Crime! Mafiosi Season One Omnibus Available

Experience the thrilling moments from Mafiosi Season One by diving into the new omnibus that features all 13 pulse-pounding episodes. Join Vincenzo Abruzzi and Paul DeFicco as they chart a course up the ladder of success in a thriving New York crime family, the Paranzanos. Dodge bullets, wine and dine with the elite, and muscle your way to the top in enterprising schemes by reading these juices pages. You won't want to miss the action and drama. Then head over here and pick up Season Two's first episode October 1st.

Here's a description of the first season:

Vincenzo Abruzzi, a young, out-of-work Italian-American male in 1950s New York is approached by his cousin Paul after a neighborhood wise guy puts the word out that he needs to seed a few new spots. A chance meeting with this made man leads to a world of crime and excess after Vincenzo is given the chance to prove himself with a test run. Along the way, he meets both a nice Italian girl who could turn out to be wife material as well as a seasoned "woman of the world," who opens him up to new possibilities. Juggling these women while concentrating on furthering his criminal career without getting whacked by a slew of new enemies proves to be more difficult that it first seemed, but the allure of mob life is also too irresistible, especially when he begins to rise up the ranks with unprecedented speed.

If you like Goodfellas, The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, The Godfather, Casino, and upcoming shows Vegas, you'll also enjoy Mafiosi.

Can't Wait for the Hobbit? Check out Age of the Sigil

711 Press returns with a brand new TV Book Series, Age of the Sigil, a YA sci-fi fantasy adventure in the vein of Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. Season One of this thirteen-book per season series follows four magical teens as they trek across the continent of Austrand using the power of the four ancient Sigils: the heart shaped necklace which allows the bearer to speak to animals, the knife which can cut through steel and stone, the bow which shoots arrows that are produced by mere thought, and the scroll which contains the knowledge of the first wizards.

Only the bearers of the Sigils can save their land from total destruction, but only if they can find the birthplace of each Sigil and unlock their true powers before time runs out. Confronted with evil and opposition at every turn, Reev Onid, Deloria Kildri, Estra Dane, and Pim the Knife face the most challenging journeys of their short-lived lives. Will Austrand be saved in time or will the evil tyrant, Lord Draeden Sifferus continue to reign in terror while the beast deep within the Urthe known only as the Void, secretly plans its escape to bring total destruction to Austrand? Find out in Age of the Sigil.

Death Becomes Him

Now, I know what you're thinking. By the title, you're assuming Vincenzo bit the bullet. But I assure you, our young mafioso is still alive and kicking. But in this episode, Vinnie learns that death is a numbing fact of the mafia life, and he soon takes to it like a fish to water.

Vinnie has been ordered by the family to knock off his first enemy for many reasons. One, to send a message to the Detroit mob. Essentially when you mess with New York, you mess with death. Two, the only way to become a made man is by making your bones. That means you have to do an authorized hit. If you're a fan of Mafiosi, you might have picked up on the fact that Vincenzo has been climbing the ladder on his brains, not brawn, and though the thought of taking out a major crime boss has his stomach in knots, he knows it's the only way to make it in this family...and to stay alive. For all you Sopranos, Scarface, and Godfather fans, Don Paranzano says this one is for you!

Methods of Mayhem

Season One of Mafiosi is wrapping up with only three episodes left! Episode eleven is all-out anarchy as the five heads of the New York families vote in favor of ending Vincenzo and Paul's death threats by exterminating the Detroit mob's hitmen, which will send a message that Detroit is treading on thin ice. More mayhem than a Scarface movie ensues as blood spills, ending with Don Giuseppe making a decision that's never been made before—turning Paul and Vincenzo into made men well before their time. But there's a catch—to be a made man requires that Vincenzo take down the head of the Detroit crime family, Don Ottati. Considering he's never taken a life, this may prove the toughest challenge of all. . . .

Carlito's Way or Vincenzo's Way?

In Mafiosi Season one, episode eight, the Forbidden Playground sees a great first opening night, bringing in a wad of cash from the overflowing amount of liquor sold, not to mention the illegal gambling. In fact the take is so large, Vincenzo could swim in it. And it wouldn't have come together if the young mafioso didn't have the luck of the Irish. However, things are not as kosher as they may seem. Antoinette's girls went home near penniless, after meeting reluctance from their high-profile clients who've refused to pay for the services rendered from Antoinette's stable of high-class call girls. The kink in their operation leaves Antoinette distraught, but Vincenzo assures her, he will get his way in the end. Looks like it's time for some blackmail....
