Self-publishing has exploded in the last number of years as a result of new technologies and distribution channels that allow writers to cheaply publish and distribute their own books. The quality of the perfect bound paperback or hardcover book is as good or often better than a similar book by a mainstream publisher.
Distribution is mostly done through Internet booksellers like Amazon, Indigo and Barnes and Noble. And, of course, the author/publisher is responsible for marketing and promoting her own book(s). A lot of times this means getting rid of the middle man, in this case commercial publishers. The good thing about that is that it is a democratizing force in the world of ideas.
