Parson Weems Publisher Services

All About Parson Weems

Parson Weems’ Publisher Services, LLC was founded in 1997 by partners Christopher Kerr and Colwyn Krussman (1935-2016), long time publishing sales executives. Parson Weems adopted both traditional and non-traditional means to sell their clients’ books. The company was purchased by Linda Cannon (1951-2019) and Eileen Bertelli in January of 2014.

The company is named after the flamboyant nineteenth-century publishing figure and folk hero, Mason Locke Weems. Among his many careers, Weems was an itinerant book peddler, Anglican minister, and author of moral tracts and questionable biographies, most memorably a biography of George Washington that included an apocryphal tale of the first president’s childhood encounter with a cherry tree.
