I don't think anybody will ever write a novel about my small agricultural town with a population of 280. I do enjoy reading novels set in my own state, though - it helps me feel a greater bond with the protagonist (or the antagonist, if it's that kind of novel) if I can recognise where they are.

According to my mother, who is by no means an official source, the restaurant that Edward and Bella visit in the Twilight series of novels actually exists, but didn't include the dish that the couple kept ordering until after the popularisation of the novels through the movies - they ended up having so many requests for that dish that it became a permanent addition to their menu. I don't know the validity of this story, but if true it shows the influence novels can have on real-world locations.
