Contributors listed are misleading to customers

Hi

I recently submitted a book on KDP. It went live and after couple of days I got email from Amazon. It went as shown below.

We found that contributors listed for your book are misleading to our customers.

It didn't have anything more specific than this.
So I understand that there is a problem with contributors I listed but don't know how to fix it.

In reality I am sole author of this book and don't have any contributor. But it seems somehow by mistake I entered a contributor.

Can you please help me how to resolve this issue?

Thanks a lot in advance.

On your first tab in the publishing process, called Book Details, you can list various Contributors. Make sure that you are shown as Author, and that no one else is listed -- for example, don't list yourself twice.

Otherwise, post the ASIN here so someone can see the problem (assuming it's available for purchase).

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook.)

Good luck! -- NJ
