Cannot do 'Public' Giveaway on my book

I did a 'Public' Giveaway on 1 of my books.
When I tried with another of my books, it would not allow me to select 'Public', it only allowed 'Private'. It says that the 'book is not eligible for Public giveaways'.
WHy?
How do I correct this?
Thanks for any assistance.

THanks, but I already read these guidelines.
My books HAVE the button that allows me to add a Giveaway.
But I do NOT get a chance to use 'Public', only 'Private. That's my problem/question.
Two of my books DO show Public AND Private.
The others only allow Private.
I do not understand why or what I need to do to get 'Public' to show as an option.

It may be ineligible for Amazon marketing -- political, religious, etc etc.

Thanks for the response!
Well, it's just a SciFi adventure series so not sure why that would not be eligible.
Do you know if there is an Amazon support site I can ask to get the exact reason?
Thank you so much.

I'd hit up the Contact Us link at the bottom of this page and ask there. Make sure to use the ASIN numbers for each book when discussing the issue so they can look up what's going on.
