1. Make it clear who’s narrating which chapter. The biggest problem with multiple narrators is that it’s hard to keep track of who is narrating a given chapter. One way you can fix this problem is by placing the character’s name below the chapter heading. Or you can use blatant demographic cues. (For example, someone that starts a chapter by saying “Damn, I hate high-heels!” is probably not a male). Some publishers even sign off on a tiny picture of the character below the chapter heading. Do whatever it takes.
