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.

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.

Mafiosi Season One Omnibus Coming September 3rd

Good news for you mafia fans who are awaiting the upcoming third season of Boardwalk Empire. I hear 711 Press author James LaFleur might be reviewing each episode as it airs on HBO. Looking forward to seeing more of what Nucky Thompson and friends are up to in Atlantic City myself, but I'm here to tell you that Mafiosi: The Complete Season One omnibus launches on Monday, September 3rd, while the first episode of season two drops on Monday, October 1st. You don't want to miss either season if you're true fans of crime fiction, particularly the kind dealing with the mafia.

Some interesting things are in store for Mafiosi season two, wherein I take the boys West, to California, which, in our fictional 711 Universe is considered vigrin territory for Vincenzo Abruzzi and Paul DeFicco. I think fans of the first season of Mafiosi will thoroughly enjoy season two.

Mafiosi Season One Closes...Next Stop: Hollywood!

We cannot believe that Mafiosi has wrapped up its first season. This amazing TV Book mafia drama started out promising and ended even more so. Now we must wait a whole year to see what will unfold as Vincenzo, Paul, and Antoinette dig their claws into LA, determined to own the town. From New York to Detroit to Los Angeles, Vincenzo proves his worth wherever he lands. He truly deserves the nickname  Vinny "Luck".

If you're new to Mafiosi and are wondering what all the buzz is about, this is a "TV Book" series that is easy to digest, consisting of 13 mini-books (or episodes), each easily read within a half-hour apiece. Mafiosi is for those of you who miss The Sopranos, as well as for those who loved The Godfather, Goodfellas, Casino, and any mafia related movie that comes to mind. Hey, and for you Mafia 2, The Sabatuer, and Mafia Wars gamers, give your fingers a break, read a TV Book and become part of the story!
