Not a market, but a resource for romance writers (and readers).

WRDF (Writers and Readers of Distinctive Fiction) is a group I've joined recently. I haven't had a chance to spend too much time there, but it is a pretty nifty place. They also have fairly reasonable workshops, discounted if you become a member. Membership is free.

What I like is that they send you an email to let you know what is coming up. I generally don't have time to visit during the week, but I do visit on the weekends to see what's new.

Check it out if it interests you. It costs nothing to look or join.
