“Paula Deen’s New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up” was set to be released in October.

Pre-orders skyrocketed earlier this week.

Fans came to her support after several high profile companies ended their relationship with the celebrity chef.

Deen is under fire after admitting to using a racial slur.

She is being sued by a former employee for racial and sexual harassment.
