Sorry about the delay. You're in. All editors get notifications whenever someone submits but that doesn't mean you have to publish. We just all get the notification. Each author editor must only publish their own story. The beauty or for some annoyance is that we all know about everyone else's stories. I you want to only be a writer I can put you in as one. You won't get notifications and any editor can publish your story immediately. I will be writing about this shortly.
