I know that Kindle launched their tablet there in June, so I was wondering when authors can start selling e-books there?

You'd have to ask Amazon that, and I doubt they'll tell you.

I lived in China for 5 years. If I changed my address on Amazon to reflect this I couldn't even search eBooks. Nothing would come up!

I don't think they'll be allowing them too soon. Also, China's just put out a huge back library of classics for their own eReaders.

Probably just as soon as the Chinese government figures out how to censor them.
