Thanks for the question. To view or cancel a pending pre-order:
1. Choose Store > View My Appie ID, then click Manage Pre-orders, which located in the Settings section at the bottom of the Account Information screen in iTunes on your computer.
2. From the Mange Pre-orders screen, click the Cancel button to the right of the pre-order item you would like to cancel. You'll be asked to confirm your pre-order cancellation.
I have a quick question. I have read two books by a certain author and now when I look at the authors name, it says that I have pre-ordered her new book coming out. Which I did not. (but it is orange and says pre-ordered)
When I go into itunes and manage my account it doesnt show it in there.
I dont want this book that is coming out, but I dont no how to stop it.
Does it say 'pre-ordered' on a slightly greyed-out orange background e.g.
Or the price and 'pre-order' :
If the former then try logging out of your account (Store > Sign Out menu option) and close and re-open iTunes and then log back in and see if it shows as 'pre-ordered' in the store and/or shows at the bottom of your account's page.
If it says 'pre-order', similar to my second image on my previous post, then that means that it is available for you to pre-order (all books that are available to pre-order will show that) - if you had actually pre-ordered it then it will show similar to my first image i.e. it won't show the price, just 'pre-ordered'.
