Juror B37 from the George Zimmerman trial has quickly cancelled his plans to write a tell-all book about her experience as a juror on the jury that acquitted Zimmerman of murdering black teenager Trayvon Martin.

Juror B37, a woman who has chosen to remain anonymous since she was picked as a juror, backtracked on her plans to write the book just a day after her literary agent announced plans of the impending book.

"That isolation shielded me from the depth of pain that exists among the general public over every aspect of this case," Juror B37said in a statement her former agent Sharlene Martin released to ABC station KABC.

"...I have realized that the best direction for me to go is away from writing any sort of book and return instead to my life as it was before I was called to sit on this jury," her statement said.

Juror B37 appeared in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper on late Monday evening in which she said she is dropping plans for the book after a petition appeared on Change.org, urging her former agent to not go ahead with the book.

"Please don't allow this person to profit off of the injustice that they've served to the American public," the petition's description read.

The petition gained 1,346 signatures, fulfilling a goal of 1,000 signatures, and has since been closed.
