Ryan, I can empathise with you, as I've been on the same journey. My third novel is currently available as a paperback and ebook, but I will soon stop printing the book and sell my trilogy in ebook format only. From a marketing point of view, I find this slightly less stressful and more economical than promoting paperbacks at shows, etc.
I think we can all agree that writing is a hard (and sometimes thankless) way to make a living. Over the last six years, I've spent a lot of time and money promoting my novels. I haven't made a profit, and probably never will. But I will continue to write because I love it.
Perhaps you could allocate a certain amount of time each week to marketing and stick to a specific budget. Write and produce the best novel you can, and be proud of your achievement. I wish you all the best.
