Is it appropriate to nudge over QueryManager? I submitted my query over two months ago and haven't yet heard back, and my manuscript lines up with Ms. Hart's MSWL so much so that it's almost creepy! I see below that she's already responded to multiple queries that were submitted after mine. I've gotten requests (not yet offers) from other agents, but Ms. Hart is my top choice and I don't want to miss the opportunity to work with her.

"Thank you for thinking of Cate Hart and Harvey Klinger Agency, but we are going to pass on this project. After careful consideration with Cate, we don't feel that she is the best agent to champion this work. Publishing is so very subjective, and while we may not be the best fit for this project, your work may be just what another agent is seeking. Thank you for considering Cate Hart at Harvey Klinger, and best of luck with your future queries."

Polite rejection from I'm guessing her assistant saying that it's not the right fit but good luck and thanks for submitting.
