Absolutely - increasingly, published writers are expected to take charge of their marketing, as well as treat publishing as a business.

While most self-published books on Kindle will remain trashy, I suspect there will be some with a decent product and business acumen who really lead the pack there.

Also, another thought - a writer could look to run their main works through a publisher, and then sell backstory packages via Kindle directly.
