Is there any way to make my creation secured from getting ripped off?

I have written one book on fiction. I want to publish it now so that everyone can come across my creation but I have one issue that someone can copy my creation which I don’t want so can anyone help me out to make my creation secured from getting ripped off.

You will find it hard to get people to read your book. You shouldn't worry about finding ways to stop them doing so. Obscurity is the main problem of new writers.

You might find these columns by Eric Flint of interest.

Welcome to the forum mathewdaniel.
I've moved your post because it was in the uploaded book sections, but didn't contain an upload.
You could try publishing via Lulu.com

Re:

I too think that this can happen that someone can steal your ideas and can make them his own but there is one way to save your work from getting it ripped off. You can do copyright of your work. There is an online service nuked which will copyright your work to make it safe from any duplicity.
Best of luck.

That website charges a fee. But writers automatically have copyright in their written works. The problem is in actually asserting it.

To anyone who reads this thread and is interested in getting a book copyrighted or published:

BEWARE and BE AWARE of any person linking to a website who does not inform you that he or she is associated with that website - AND fails to disclose that money needs to be transacted.

A website and/or individual who fails to advise you of this basic information is someone or something to avoid.

We have had a couple of these... one guy posts a question or something that appears to be one, and then later registers again to "answer" it with a link to a scam site. It seems to be all the same guy coming from an Indian IP.

Not wanting to give them any hints, but it would be a better scam if the guy making the request sounded a bit less like a pimply fourteen year old who just wrote the "best robot sex slave pirate adventure manga superhero story EVER" and wanted to publish it for a fortune and is afraid that some lousy publisher is going to rip him off and not give him a dime...
