Publishing Taking a Long Time

I am new to Storyline, attempting to publish a draft of a project for the first time, with the intention of putting it on tempshare for my boss to review.  The project is 18 slides, with photo images, no audio and a few quiz slides.  The project has been stuck in publish for almost an hour; I had no idea it could take hours to publish.  I can't cancel the publishing, either.  Any suggestions for how to 1) make this go faster or 2) get out of the publishing process?

It's definitely not normal behavior.  For a file with that description, you should see it publish in a couple minutes or less (depending upon computer specs).  

You should be able cancel out of the publish and start over. And yes, I'd publish to a local drive vs. the USB as that could also impact performance.
