Edit(12/30/2014): At the 2014 Dragoncon Jim said that Peace Talks will take place about 3 months after the events of Skin Game (in the middle of Summer) and Harry will be living with his daughter and trying to be a dad when the events happen.
The name makes me think that Listens to Wind (LtW) will be rather central (remember the foreshadowing of LtW doing some mentoring for Harry back in Turn Coat?), but Jim has said that Molly will have some exposition.
I moved everything about other future DF books into my Mirror Mirror review. This includes information about much more than just Mirror Mirror.
