The book must have been close to publication, when it was cancelled, as there is a Warcraft III Player's Guide (D&D Campaign) page on Amazon, that states it was due to be published in February 2004. According to Amazon the authors were by James Jacobs and Paul Peterson.
Wowpedia has a bit more information on it's Warcraft III Player's Guide:

Has anyone ever spoken to James Jacobs and Paul Peterson about how much of the book they finished before it got scrapped?
Does anyone know if Wizards of the Coast sold on the D&D World of Warcraft licence to Sword & Sorcery Studios, as a result of not being able to finish this book, or if there is a different story to that product line?
