Double or single speech marks?

Which is correct to use?

I've just had a slight panic when reading through my novel and noticed I have used double speech marks throughout. I'm sure I researched this when writing the book a couple years ago, but have taken to my bookshelf. The majority use single speech marks with a handful double. I work as a teacher and we teach the children to use double, so why are the novels not using this?


Apparently UK uses single and US double? But reading other UK blogs this depends on publishers houses. As a self published writer, I am confused as which to use - help please!
