In 2015, Plume published the first book by digital creator and comedian Mamrie Hart. An enormous name in the world of YouTube celebrity for her You Deserve a Drink series, Hart tackled the publication of her book of the same name the way she tackles life: with infectious humor, undeniable tenacity, an Ill-try-anything-once spirit, and, ultimately, success. Hart’s tireless work ethic paid off when, upon publication, You Deserve a Drink launched at #5 on the New York Times bestseller list.
In 2016, Mamrie wrote, executive-produced, and starred in Lionsgates feature-length comedy Dirty 30, for which she won the Best Actress Streamy Award in 2017. She earned a coveted position on Variety’s annual list of Hollywood’s New Leaders that same year, and a spot on The Hollywood Reporter’s 2017 Digital Disruptors list tied to a title she is writing for Sony and a new IP she is developing for Reese Witherspoon’s digital arm, Hello Sunshine.
And in 2018, Mamrie will return to the written word withher second essay collection with I’ve Got This Round: More Tales of Debauchery, a wild, unforgettable, hilarious and honest journey through something most Millennials would prefer to avoid: adulting.
When Mamrie simultaneously enters her 30s and finds herself single for the first time since college, the world is suddenly full of possibilities both terrifying and thrilling. Emboldened by the cool confidence that comes with the end of ones 20s, plus the newfound independence of an attachment-free lifestyle, Mamrie commits herself to living life with even more spirit, adventure, and heart than before.
Mamrie dives into new experiences at full-tilt and seeks out once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, bucket-list goals, and madcap shenanigans, all while diving back into the dating world for the first time in a decade. From partying all night with Kevin Richardson on a Backstreet Boys cruise, busting a gut at the Moulin Rouge, testing the waters with online dating, and discovering her love of WWE wrestling, Mamries stories will have readers laughing, cringing, and wishing for more.
I’ve Got This Round explores the universal themes of female friendship, dating, and self-discovery that every 30-something contends with in todays world. Through inimitable candor, Hart delivers the ultimate guide to becoming an adult, and having a great time doing it.
