I'm pretty sure they've finished (or close to) writing Jessica already and have slated it for release next fall. Can't remember where I got that from, but I remember the impression that they'd given up on their two year promise and gone back to one a year. Remember too, Kev "writes" nine to fourteen full novels a year. even assuming he gives a Dune book three times as much time as one of his other peices of garbage that still only adds up to about three months per Dune book - and we are reasonably sure he is writing the vast bulk of each new Dune novel... well you can see where I'm going with this. Very little time goes into each book.
