    Making sure my contract ends?

    [Edit: Update a few posts below. Book is apparently free from PA's clutches. Woohoo.]

    I know this has been discussed many times here, but rather than spending time trying to find the threads, I hope you don't mind I'm starting this one.

    My first book's contract with PA is supposed to be up next year. I've heard that some authors have needed to be proactive in the process and that the contract may not be dropped automatically. I don't want PA to have my book for another 7 years. What should I do? I don't want to fight for it before the contract is up - it isn't worth that much to me. But I do want it back at the end of my contract so I can do what I please with the manuscript.
