Crestview resident Jeff Janes has released his new book, “I Said, Not Now.”

“I Said, Not Now” tells the story of a young man named Chris Brownstein and his quest to uncover the secrets of his late father’s work. His father wanted to restore the Tree of Life to God’s Chosen People. Chris will finish his father’s work and cement his legacy.

The book, from Christian Faith Publishing, is an adventure that twists the mysteries of modern medicine and the faith of God’s Chosen People.

“For years, medical researchers have debated the function of the appendix,” a media release for the book states. “Some have searched for a reason as to why humans even have the mysterious organ. Only God knows the true purpose for its existence.”

Janes grew up as the fourth of six children in a Christian home. After graduating high school, he joined the United States Air Force and served 20 years in aircraft maintenance.

In 1989, while working a 24-hour shift on F-15 alert duty at Bitburg Air Force Base in Germany, Jeff had a sleepless night. It was then that this story came to him as he pondered about the Tree of Life and its function in God’s plan to grant eternal life to his chosen.

Consumers can purchase “I Said, Not Now” at traditional brick-and-mortar bookstores, or at Amazon.com, the Apple iTunes store, Kobo or Barnes and Noble.
