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.

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.
