Also, it seems people still don't seem to understand, so I will leave this note up for permanent reference.
Quotation marks can be either one mark, ‘word’, or two marks, “word”, neither is correct over the other. It is solely authorial choice. If you cannot handle this, then don’t read my stories, as frankly, I am tired of being insulted for using single quotation marks to denote speech and double quotation marks to denote thoughts and being told how dumb, stupid, illiterate etc. I supposedly am. I am Australian and evidently, my way of writing is the standard here. The majority of stories use the reverse of my quotations, as many writers on this site are American and over there, the common usage of quotation marks is the reverse of what I do. In fact, I looked through my bookshelf and I seem to have a 60/40 split in favour of my quotation mark usage. Two of my favourite series; Deltora Quest and Harry Potter use quotation marks just the way I do, so I will say this now: I am never changing this.
