Making the Switch From KDP to Ingram Spark

I think I am finally making the switch after six years of selling exclusively to Amazon with my eBooks through KDP. I was always reluctant to change because I made most of my money through the Kindle Unlimited program on my pages read, but I think that has run its course.
