Can someone recommend a book, article, or manual that explains how to generate an RF layout for an RF power amplifier or RF circuits in general?

There is no such RF Layout Fundamentals..There are some Basic Principles and Rule of Thumbs while designing a RF PCB or MMIC/RFIC Layout.
Furthermore, PCB and MMIC/RFIC Design Rules are quite different and each designer has some habits and rules.Basic Fundamental for generic RF Layout, it can be said :

*Grounding
*Symmetry
*Decoupling
*Proper Placement

That's all but all depends on the designer's skill,habits and knowledge.

What are the ROTs?
-keep your traces about lambda/10 long in your circuit for phase stability.
-make sure to do em simulation to observe how your current travels through the PCB.
-use proper DC-block and RF-choke elements for DC/AC balance of the circuit
-model your circuit schematic as close to real-case including transmission lines, parasitics etc.
