My story has a protagonist, well several in fact, but they're not constant. But a friend said that he didn't have a constant protagonist and his book failed to get published, so I'm worrying that mine won't work. The story doesn't call for someone who torments the MCs for the entire book, probably a few chapters at max, but it has several threats in several groups of bandits, cannibals and human/plant hybrids. So will this effect my chances on publication? By the way, my friends book was great, well written and a top class plot.
