Children's Graphic Novel Day Roundtable Summary (Part 3)

Part 3 - On the role reviews play in the success of a graphic novel:
J. H. Everett, who worked at bookstores (Borders, Waldenbooks), said reviews almost did not matter to most customers. Conversely, Tommy Kovac and Michael Payne explained that librarians made many of their purchasing decisions on reviews alone, especially with trusted sources, such as VOYA. Moreover, Kelly Sonnack reminded the audience that strong reviews in established venues, like the New York Times, build your credibility and impress publishers.
