About the Author
BT Urruela is a combat wounded amputee, purple heart recipient, contemporary author who has written both independent and traditionally published books. He is a RARE under 40 award recipient, Rockwood Summit High School and Rockwood School District Hall of Fame inductee, Co-founder and Brand Ambassador for VETSports, Ambassador for Tampa Sports Academy, People Magazine Tribute for Heroes winner, Cover Model, Motivational Speaker and Philanthropist. At an early age he began writing short stories having been inspired by reading books authored by RL Stein. His maternal grandmother’s bookshelf was filled with literature that inspired his young mind and cultivated his vivid imagination. Upon graduation from high school his desire to have a 20-year military career was cut drastically short by an improvised explosive device. Taking the life of his commander, and leaving the remaining four team members badly wounded. After careful consideration and multiple surgeries, he along with the guidance of his doctors made the decision to amputate. It was the only surgery he ever left with a smile on his face, as if a weight had been lifted. He struggled for two more years through 4-5 hours of physical therapy a day, five days a week to get adapted to his new prosthetic. He medically retired from the Army with high hopes. His focus on restoring his physical shape being the most eminent battle caused him to neglect his psychological state. Meeting people was difficult and there were very few options for veterans to utilize that would stimulate friendship, and ultimately, allow communication barriers to be breached. After moving to Tampa, Florida, he co-founded the veteran community sports nonprofit, VETSports, with two other combat wounded veterans. It was their mission to change the way veterans transitioned back to civilian life through organized team sports, community involvement, and leadership opportunities. After being invited to attend a photoshoot with acclaimed photographer Michael Stokes, he flew to California in December of 2014, with incredible excitement. His photos were so widely publicized that he soon gained exposure to the literary world like he’d always dreamed of. That opportunity launched him into his present writing career. He co-wrote the novel 'A Lover's Lament with author KL Grayson. The following year he released first solo novel, 'Into the Nothing' and will be releasing Wicked Little Words with author Stevie J. Cole. He is now writing full-time.

After a few unsuccessful dates, Bobby challenges him to thirty more dates in thirty days. If Gavin can complete the challenge, Bobby will give him a check for twenty-five thousand dollars.
Does Gavin have what it takes to complete the challenge? Or will the trials and tribulations of modern dating prove to be too much?
What I really liked about this book is that it gives a real look at what mental illness looks like. Sometimes, in books, it's made to look pretty and glossed over but in this it's raw and open. It's heartbreaking and tugs at the heartstrings. Working in this field, I see every day how it affects people and depression is something that should be talked about more often. This book gives that a voice and a platform. It's not always something we acknowledge or want to talk with someone about, but we need to. I loved the way the writer wrote this because even though there were some errors that may have been there, there wasn't any in the actual background content. I like when a book grabs you by the heart and doesn't let go until the very last sentence. If you want a good look at what depression, love and coming out on the other side looks like - buy this book!
Urruela’s artistry in developing the prose around Gavin’s experience is truly a testament to the diverse talents he uses as a writer. He provides humor and banter but is still rooted in opening the discussion of mental darkness, developing coping mechanisms, and dissecting the depth of complexity associated with dealing with demons and rising above the darkness. Thirty Days is the first installment of the trilogy and well worth every word read.
