Paula Deen’s upcoming cookbook, currently the top seller on Amazon.com, has been dropped by its publisher. In a brief statement Friday, Ballantine Books announced it had canceled publication of ‘‘Paula Deen’s New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up.’’ The book, available by pre-order, was slated for October release.
