Let me ask you one more thing as a published writer, what should my concerns be in the Copyright department as far as this forum goes? My novel is not yet registered with the Copyright office, because it is not fully complete. Call me egotistical, but I am protective of my idea. If I were to post my Query letter and excerpts on here, what concerns should I have?

None at all.

Your ideas can't be protected by copyright. Copyright only protects the execution ---- the finished product. Copyright in the finished product is automatic provided you live in a country that's a signatory to the Berne Convention. This includes all the countries where English is the first language.

Therefore you don't need to register your work with the copyright office, it's a complete waste of time.

Your ideas will not be stolen. Nobody ever steals a novel idea from an unpublished writer. It's more than enough work writing up their own brilliant ideas.

English is a strange language. It can be understood through tough thorough thought though.

I agree that no one would purloin any idea. If you have qualms about plagiarism though, the members only forum would be ideal.
