The latest issue of Blue & Gray magazine highlights Stonewall Jackson in the Luray Valley during the 1862 Valley Campaign. The bio of article author Gary Ecelbarger mentions that he will have a Battle of Atlanta study coming out this fall through St. Martin's Press. I've confirmed through Gary that his book will indeed be a detailed tactical study of the occupation of Bald Hill and the Battle of Atlanta (July 20-22). As we know, none of the Atlanta Campaign battles have received anything like the full length treatment of the kind we've come to expect from modern battle studies, so this is a very promising development. I don't know what the title will be, and, as of this writing, St. Martin's does not have a web page up for the book yet.
