Doesn't E change the meaning?

Decribing how she made her first launch if different from
Describing her first launch, Isn't it?

Or am I analyzing a little too much?

A story on her first launch will cover how she made her first launch. No?

We can remove A,B and D since they will result in unparallel sentences. E is better since 'to become' is clear and does not result in an awkward sentence.

I would stick with A, as "How she made her first product launch" is different from "and her first product launch"

Will E change the meaning. If the author discusses her first successful product launch, this will definitely include how she made her first successful launch.
