At the 2010 OC Christian Writers Conference Mary Henderson won the first WestBow Writing Contest with her book Break Free. After publication she said, "I hope my experience encourages others to persevere with their writing and pursue the necessary avenues to make their dreams a reality."
The 2011 winner was Larry Forcey’s novel The Créche. After winning he said, “To this day whenever I see the book out of the corner of my eye, I still have a moment of disbelief how all this came to be. I had always dreamed of publishing but without the WestBow Press, it may never have become reality.”
