See the U.S. Copyright Office website at www.copyright.gov. There are several non-lawyer services you can find on-line (DIY kits), but I am not specifically recommending any one of them. If in doubt, it is best to have an attorney help you.
Copyrights are automatic. If you write it you have a copyright. What you are talking about is a copyright registration. That is done at the Copyright Office, which is a branch of the Library of Congress, and as noted in the prior response is at www.copyright.gov. If you have not done a copyright application before you should have an experienced copyright attorney help you. I am licensed in Texas and am a copyright attorney (as well as a patent attorney) and can certainly help you with this if you want.
