Solo, not series

Author, Rating and Tags:

I recently posted one of my stories (The Human Cuckoo - Book One) from a trilogy I have published on Kindle, partly as a teaser. The story is complete and standalone.

Since I do not intend to publish the other two stories from the trilogy, I marked it complete and a solo. However, it keeps getting reclassified as a series, which it is not, and I suspect some software is seeing the Book One and automatically assuming there are going to be other books.

Is there any way of preventing this?

Seeing something else.

The programme is compulsive watching for anyone with an open mind.
