-While the sports world still mourns the loss of ESPN anchor Stuart Scott, Penguin Random House imprint Blue Rider Press has decided to move up the publication of his memoir, aptly titled Every Day I Fight. The book, which chronicles his battle with cancer, was originally set for a May release but will now go on shelves March 10.  It will also include an epilogue by Scott and his co-writer Larry Platt.

-Disney’s classic characters will rise again in comic book form thanks to IDW Publishing, who has the right to perennial Disney icons like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. Beginning with Uncle Scrooge No. 1 in April, a different comic will be released monthly through July, including a new Donald Duck series, Mickey Mouse and Walt Disney Comics and Stories. The comics will be reprints of translated versions that were originally published overseas in foreign languages. As if this news isn’t exciting enough for Disney lovers, each issue will include a themed cover based on famed Walt Disney resorts like Adventureland, Tomorrowland and Fantasyland.  [The Hollywood Reporter]

-Amateur romance writers are about to get a shot at the spotlight. Wattpad is teaming up with independent publishing house Kensington for “The Write Affair,” a contest to find their next author. Writers will submit the first 5,000 words of their novel, along with a summary, to be read and voted on by the website’s community. Submissions will be accepted until Feb. 27, with the winner announced April 13. The winner will receive a contract with Kensington’s imprint Zebra Shout, which includes print and digital publication of the winning story. Looks like those days of writing fan fiction on Tumblr are about to pay off. [Adweek]
