Kodak's Portrait Techniques, Publication No. 0-4, CAT 157 3955.
This may not be the most current version of a classic which I used to start.
John Hedgcoe's Practical Portrait Photography.
Mine is a 1987 Edition; I'm sure it's been updated.

You can find wonderful books on ebay as well and I myself have written three books on posing and sell them on ebay as well as some stores -but please don't buy them there if you contact me through these sites I give you a discount.
photography can be expensive to start a business in - and the need to recup the monies you've put out is a nessesity. so. we try to help you out a little.
also, just keep your eyes open and try the poses that you like.
best of luck to you, Debby Tabb
