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?

UK v US

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!
