BAILEY DAVENPORT has been writing fictional stories since she learned how to hold a pencil. She started writing her first novel, “Eilinland,” on December 27th, 2011 in the form of a script. The story had changed into a narrative by the time she finished it six years later, and she renamed it “Eilinland: Through the Wall” to accommodate for future stories in the same fantasy world.
Being a natural entrepreneur, she hardly considered traditional publishing and dove headfirst into the indie publishing world. Using knowledge from her college business classes and countless resources online, she began the tedious work of building an online presence. The hard work paid off on November 10th, 2018 when Eilinland: Through the Wall launched through Kindle Direct Publishing, Amazon’s self-publishing service. Within 48 hours, the book was #1 New Release in Christian Fantasy and in the top 100 Best Sellers of several other niche genres like Epic Fantasy, and Religious Sci-Fi and Fantasy.
While continuing to ride the excitement of the recent launch, she’s not wasting any time to begin drafting the second in the series. Updates on her progress will be posted on her blog and social media pages.
Aside from writing, she owns a small business teaching horsemanship, runs a lawn care company with her husband, Britton, and enjoys spending her free time outside hiking, kayaking, camping, or just relaxing and reading.
