Mafiosi Season 2 Postponed Till 2013

As we announced recently in this blog post, 711 Press has changed its publishing model and will no longer be releasing single episodes of TV books. We would rather release all TV books as full season omnibuses. This means that while we have released two episodes of Mafiosi season 2 thus far under the old model, this action conflicts with our current plans and isn't fitting anymore considering the reduced price of our products.

So the bad news is you'll have to wait until 2013, tentatively February, to learn what happens to Vincenzo, Paul, and Co. The good news is you'll be able to purchase the full season in one shot, rather than looking for new episodes week after week. And you'll do this at a fraction of the old cost.

And just so we don't leave you out in the cold, we the publishers have decided to gift you a free copy of the first episode of season 2, DRM free in the Kindle format. Simply download the episode and load it on your Kindle device (or your smartphone, tablet, or MP3 Player and launch your Kindle app) and you're good to go.

Mafiosi Season 2: Episode 2: Expansion Plans

After a heated sit-down with a soldier from one of the Cleveland crews, Vincenzo takes matters into his own hands. He approaches Fat Tricky Sassano in an attempt to have the L.A. capo front him a few men in order to muscle the Cleveland crew into ceding territory to New York, thus expanding the Parazanos' reach out West. But Fat Tricky insists on having Vin and Paul do him a favor in return, which involves helping the corrupt L.A. Mayor. During all this, Vincenzo accidentally agrees to Loraine's propsition, to his regret, which helps to bring her out of a long funk. Meanwhile, Chris Bianchi and Canico want out, and they make arrangements to head back East, since the action in L.A. wasn't what they bargained for; an act that enrages Vincenzo.

Mafiosi Season 2: Episode 1: Legs Spread Eagled

In this exciting season opener, Vincenzo Abruzzi and Paul DeFicco are sent packing to Hollywood following their unprecedented success in New York, which the Paranzano bosses want to replicate out West. When the boys get there, they find a veritable virgin town waiting to be popped, and the two waste no time sinking their teeth in. But certain scattered crews from Cleveland have been operating in the vinicity, which forces Vincenzo to make a calculated move. Meanwhile, Loraine, who heads out West to join her man, hits Vin with a new proposition; one he is truly not ready for. Also, Chris Bianchi, Canico, and Tommy "Fishgut" are sent to Los Angeles by Carlo to aid Vin in his plans.

Blackmail on the Mean Streets of New York

Can you spell blackmail? Vincenzo can.... When the new gentleman's club suffers a drastic drop off in clientele, Carlo saves face by ordering a temporary shutdown, arguing that it's better to lose a few night's earnings than appear like a flock of fools in the face of all of New York. Antoinette knows the answer to the substantial loss in club attendance. Her own list of high profile politicians, CEOs, and celebrities have refused to pay for her high-class eye candy, leaving Vincenzo with only one choice: Blackmail! Antoinette at first seems nervous about his decision on handling the situation, but quickly learns to trust the young hood when his new scheme begins to take root.

But while all this is happening, Paul is nowhere to be found, and when Carlo suggests that Paul replace the Rhino in the field, Vincenzo covers up his cousin's dark secret, which has kept him off the radar for weeks.
