I was browsing the News stories yesterday and found a couple that hit close to home for me.
One of the articles talked about the world of Virtual Reality and medical uses. Apologies for the url's being a tad long.

Now. The interesting part being that I wrote Virtually Yours about three years ago, and it talks about love in the world of Virtual Reality. And how my test subject, heroine, is in the case study because they need to know the effects for medical purposes.
Then I found this: http://news.yahoo.com/s/livescience/forecastsexandmarriagewithrobotsby2050;_ylt=Aju5AfxDeB9Ust4MBG9IL3rq188F
It talks about how scientists predict by the year 2050 that people will be having sex with and marrying robots.
Anyway. This brings to mind my November release, Programmed for Pleasure. Where my heroine becomes hooked up with The Ultimate Sex Toy. And she wonders to herself if this is where the fate of mankind is going. Sex with circuits.
I simply found it interesting that my fiction is another person's reality.
What do you think?
