I'm Robin Van Auken, a consultant specializing in historical, editorial and literary topics

I am Robin Van Auken, founder of The Omnibus, an alliance of writers and editors, digital publishers, historical researchers, public relation specialists, graphic artists and web designers. Organized in 2001, it has kept its mission clear: To help our members and our clients preserve, present and profit from their most distinctive asset: their stories.

Are you engaged in a project that requires research, editorial assistance, eBook development and publishing, marketing or Internet promotion? Contact us to talk about your idea. We’re here to help you reach your goal.

The Omnibus is available to assist whether you are researching a family history, writing a novel or planning a corporate anniversary. We work with individuals, non-profit organizations, schools, colleges, private companies and municipalities.

Editorial Assistance
Editorial and literary assistance is available for authors interested in eBook publishing, as well as municipalities, private companies, non-profits and individuals who wish to develop public or personal histories, books, reports, presentations or articles. Below are samples of projects we will work with you to accomplish.

Literary Assistance
Have you written a manuscript but now you can’t sell it? Are literary agents and publishers sending it back with a note of regret? Or no note at all? Consider publishing your own book. If you’re an author with rights to your book, then The Omnibus can work with you to make it available as a pBook and as an eBook, available for sale to millions of readers.

Historical Assistance
Do you need assistance with a historical project? We have worked with individuals researching their family history, with museums building exhibits, with historical societies developing heritage parks. From colleges to corporations, The Omnibus has been a reliable partner while adhering to the highest standards of historical practice.

WWW Assistance
We have been building and supporting Websites since 1998, primarily for individuals, small companies and non-profit organizations. We specialize in Content Management Systems, specifically WordPress, when building Web sites because these allow the client to easily access and update the site’s pages when necessary, and require very little training and no expensive software. An Internet connection and browser are the only tools and investment you need for maintaining your own site.
