Thanks Morriss003, that's the kind of information I needed to know. I was curious to the public reaction to shorter novels - as they are not physically picking up a printed book in a bookstore and can assess the length of it before they part with cash!
I am given to writing nearer the 100,000 mark, so that is fine by me. Just new to the self publishing ebook world and needed the clarification.
