From what I know now, there isn't one book that specifically focuses on roped soloing. However there are a couple books that have a brief mention of the techniques involved, even then they are kept fairly vague (for a variety of reasons). One book I can suggest is "Big Walls" and "Advanced Rock Climbing" each have a page or two on the techniques. I have also heard of a couple others. However, if there is one thing to remember in soloing it's "set your anchors for an upward pull" - the rest of the knowledge should already be there in the first place. Anyway, there are a couple posts on roped soloing which are informative so check them out.

Stay safe.
