(CNN) -- On the heels of news that Paula Deen's upcoming cookbook had become a best seller on Amazon.com, Deen's publisher - Ballantine Books - has announced it will not publish the book.

The book, titled "Paula Deen's New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up," was set to release in October 2013.

Random House spokesperson Stuart Applebaum told CNN in a statement:

"After careful consideration, Ballantine Books has made the difficult decision to cancel the publication of 'Paula Deen's New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes All Lightened Up.'"

The announcement comes after Deen admitted to using a racial slur during a court deposition in May. Deen has already lost a number of her business deals, including Food Network, Smithfield Foods, Wal-Mart, Caesars Entertainment Corporation, Home Depot, Target and drugmaker Novo Nordisk.
