Don't hold your breath. It's either a legal issue (Pocket perhaps don't have and for some reason won't aquire the rights to publish original fiction based on the new films) or some personal beef where one party is refusing to deal with the other. Either way, if we were getting those books it would have happened by now.
Doesn't Pocket/S&S publish the Academy books?
The impression I've gotten was that Bad Robot didn't want anything set between the movies that they weren't personally involved with. This isn't from any kind of specific statement, but it was the impression that I've gotten from what's been released, and a few comments here and there. Pretty much everything that's been released set after the movie has been made with Orci's involvement.
