    I am working on writing a book and would love to post it in pieces in hubs to get some feedback

    How can I keep someone from stealing my content but get the feedback I need?

    Copyright it! You can find the information on copy writing right here on line!  www.copyright.gov/

    I hope it all works out for you! I will look for forward to your Book Chapters!
    Good Luck and Good Writing!

    Ty I did the copyright and the first chapter is now a Hub! I hope you will read it and tell me what you think. I have been writing for many years but have been too much a coward to let others read my work.

    Your best bet, would be to copyright the sections that your are posting. However, when writing on the internet, you can always advise that the material is copyrighted, since you are the author, by placing your name, and the copyright symbol, along with the year, at the top or bottom of the piece that you are distributing for feedback. If it is copied, then you have legal rights, since anything that you write, is automatically covered under the copyright law.

    Join Litopia.  It is a bang up writer's colony started by agent Peter Cox.  It takes a few months and several posts to the community, then you submit your work.  When accepted as a full member you can post your material in the writing houses.  Your material is safe, vs. on the general internet.  You get real good feedback by writers just like you who are in your genre.  Give it a try.  www.litopia.com

    I wouldn't advise posting pieces of your novel on HubPages. The first chapter, yes - but not later sections.  I wrote a Hub on how to promote your novel - check it out from my profile page.

    Sorry it took so long getting back to you:(

    My recommendation is that you put nothing
    up on the Internet that is not already properly
    Copyrighted, or that you do not mind other people
    copying or using.  Private Forums are usually safe,
    but even then, I would be cautious.

    Re: Litopia, I would seriously reconsider as the website:

    (1) Asks for the disclosure of confidential information (user contact info); and,

    (2) Asks the user to upload intellectual property.

    Both of these items are governed by a privacy policy and a terms of service and litopia.com is devoid of both. 

    Personally, I don't want to deal with a website that asks for disclosure of confidential information, and, intellectual property without either of the above mentioned policies. 

    The apparent owner of the site, Peter Cox, who, according to domaintools.com, resides in the U.K., makes pie-in-sky promises about how wonderful litopia.com is, and, de-emphasizes membership fees (but still asks for a donation nonetheless) hasn't bothered with fundamental policies. 

    Granted, the site is written by writers for writers, but disagreements and copyright infringement do occur.  And without either policy in place to provide some kind of guideline this is just unacceptable. Where does the user turn to in the event of a disagreement?  Mr. Cox, who asks for a "donation," does not even bother to include an email address on litopia.com.  Being Internet savvy, I knew to look on domaintools.com, but what of less savvy writers?

    I have an email request out to Mr. Cox regarding the above mentioned policies, but regardless of the site's tenure on the web, litopia.com seems like a sketch operation to me. 

    I'm not willing to entrust either my contact information or my intellectual property to an operation that can't get its act together long enough to create fundamental operational policies.

    i think that is a very good idea. you need some feedback from people who reads your story and can make a educated critisism. i am also writing a book and i am thinking of posting it on my hub page. maybe i can give you some feedback as well as you can give me. but go ahead and get out there, just make sure that you have a copyright or some legal advice so no one can copy your work. good luck
